Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance - A Great Event

by Mike -

The Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance was held this past Sunday. It was a great day and was a well organized and well run event with many special classic cars.

1968 Lamborghini Miura

The Italian Lineup

1969 Iso Grifo Series 2 Targa

The Bizzarrini GT 5300 surrounded by a Maserati Bora and Maserati Merak

This is the longest continually running Concours d'Elegance in the world. This was the 55th year and I expect Hillsborough will continue to hold this record indefinitely. I wrote about this event here.

1937 Airomobile, experimental sedan

1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Aerodynamica

1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal

1956 Austin Healey 100M

1937 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante

1937 Bugatti Type 57SC

1952 Jaguar XK120M

1923 Bugatti Type 32 "Tank De Tours"

This Bugatti above looks like it is going backward.

1954 Arnolt Bristol Bolide

Iso Grifo in the parking lot

We drove the Iso Grifo to the event and trailered the Bizzarrini. The Grifo spent the day in the parking lot.

I entered the Bizzarrini GT 5300 for "display only", so no judging, which should allow me to have a more relaxing time and talk to other car people without the pressure of judges. 

But as you will see in the next post it did not turn out as I had anticipated.
