A Concours d’Elegance, literally a competition of elegance, is at its heart a car show. But what a show! With shows hosted on the manicured lawns of Pebble Beach, or the splendid palace of Italy’s Villa d’ Este, the concours displays rare and beautiful cars, restored to perfection and gleaming like the multimillion-dollar jewels they are. In such venues, cars are judged by various criteria, including historical accuracy as well as the elegance of their presentation and a 100-point car is a rare gem indeed. But you don’t have to be a deep-pocketed collector to enter and buff up your car in our concours.
Indeed, most CCA chapter concours events have more to do with members lavish attention to cleanliness and preparation than to authentic details and restorative perfection, though the judges do pay attention to historical accuracy and technical merit as well as fanatical housekeeping.
