Ault Park Grand American Classics
Concours d’ Elegance - Cincinnati, Ohio
Rarely seen American
Classics such as Auburn, Cord,
Packard, Lincoln, Cadillac, Chrysler and other Classics were the
featured marques at
this year’s event. The display of these beautiful cars was heightened by an exhibit of fine automotive art from local and
national artist. Also featured was a special display of Historic
Indianapolis 500 Racing Cars and Micro Cars. Janet Guthrie was
Honored as this years Grand Marshal. Ms. Guthrie was the first women
to qualify and compete in the 1977 Indianapolis 500.
This year’s event celebrated it's 31st
year. The Cincinnati, Ohio Concours d ‘Elegance dates back to 1978.
It was started by Bill and Helen Williams. The idea was to create a
Pebble Beach Concours style event. That first event featured one
hundred and five cars that were exhibited in four classes – Antique,
Classic, Milestone and Special Interest cars. John Ruthven, famed
wildlife artist, donated one of his paintings of a Classic Car to
that year’s event. The Concours was originally held in Indian Hill.
As the event grew it was relocated to its current Ault Park location
This year’s event schedule consisted of a Friday evening Grand Gala
Welcome Party at the newly restored Greenacres Arts Center, Indian
Hill. The Concours Cars participate in a Countryside Road Tour on
Saturday and Sunday is the Concours d’ Elegance. The Concours is
open to the public (with a paid admission).
The Ault Park Concours d’ Elegance has continued to grow in size and
stature to become one of the most respected Concours event in the
United States. The Proceeds from this event benefit the Arthritis
Foundation, Ohio Valley Chapter.
If you did not make this year’s event, there is always next years. I
highly recommend this one. Please visit our
Ault Park Photo Gallery.
Park Concours D’ Elegance is one of the most anticipated classic car
show events in the United States.
