Concours of America

This annual event was held in Plymouth, Michigan, a short four hour drive from home. Saturday morning started with a Cars & Coffee event and about 400 cars. I arrived at 6:30AM (yes, I left home at 1:45AM :) ) and was able to spend several hours chatting with people, taking photos and enjoying cars of all ages, shapes and sizes. The Sunday Concours had almost 300 extremely well restored and preserved cars from CanAm to drag to vintage, 13 original Cobras in one display, eight CanAm cars, 8 drag cars, a 62 Studebaker Indy Pace Car (son of the original owner, over 250,000 original miles) and too many more to describe. Have a look, there are nearly 1200 photos plus a short video, enjoy :)

All great but I love the Motion King Cobra. Too bad about that 300 SL though. Thanks for the great pics.

Some of you may not fully understand the history of the 300SL Coupe. It started life as a race car for M-B in the early 1950s and was later adapted for the street. I just acquired about 100 old car magazines from the 1950s including Road & Track and Sports Car Graphic. In these magazines there are numerous photos of 300SL Coupes racing on road courses. air strips (like Sebring), the PanAmericana, Bonneville, and many other places. The 300SL was a race car with license plates. Bob Sirna has built his 300SL as a Bonneville car and is the current record holder in the class at over 190MPH. The others associated with the car include John Fitch and Tony Delorenzo, both well known racers. Bob is also a member of the 300SL Club and a past president. He is well known and well respected as a car owner and racer :)
