Concours Event Awards

The Concours d'Elegance, or competition of elegance, has evolved over the past few centuries from a parade of horse-drawn carriages to a competition among automobile owners. It has always been a great showing of beautiful design and impressive construction. Many of today's top events include originality in their judging criteria. We are honored by the following acknowledgements of our reverence for craftsmanship, and even more so by the trust shown us by the car owners.
