2010 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance
After a couple days work, we can now present the 2010 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. Like previous years, it was a full weekend that reserved one day each for American and European cars. Our gallery is fairly large this time around, so the keyboard arrow keys might come in handy.
On Saturday we were immediately taken in by the American heavy metal. Some of very best muscle cars were present including an immaculate split-window Sting Ray Z06, an L89 Camaro with the desirable SS/RS trim and an original Mustang 500KR which we have over 30 pics of. Naturally the Best of Show went to a prewar car, in this case the Lincoln prototype seen here that has a special front end.
Despite an impending forecast of rain, Sunday brought out even more fans from the Tri-state area. They couldn’t be disappointed with cars like the Dauer 962, nor with P4/5 which was driven enthusiastically to the show by Mr. Glickenhaus. Top honors went to a Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental with a coat of black paint that was as good as a mirror. Other notable cars included the 1973 Porsche Turbo Prototype and the recently restored Ferrari 250 Europa GT Lightweight.
With some clever planning and an expedited awards ceremony, the concours narrowly missed rain on Sunday. We also attended the Bonhams collector car auction and visited the impressive Carriage House Motor Cars showroom which we will feature later this week.
