Concours Event Awards

The Concours d'Elegance, or competition of elegance, 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 awards, on projects ranging from complete Body-off Restorations to the Preservation [noted below by (P)] of exceptional original cars. With special thanks for the trust shown to us by the car owners.
