Horses and Horse Power
Drive the Louisville Concours d'Elegance

Louisville, Kentucky’s historic Churchill Downs was host to over 200 Rare, Elegant and Cla
ssic Automobiles the weekend of October 4th and 5th. Auburn, Packard, Duesenberg, Cadillac and Lincoln were just a few Classic Cars represented at Louisville’s First Concours d’ Elegance. Ferrari, the Prancing Horse was the featured Marquee. Cars were displayed from the Louisville area, along with cars from 23 different states. There were nine classes for competing automobiles and one for vintage motorcycles. The venue included the traditional Concours Fashion Show along with exhibiting Automobile Artist's offering their works for sale and display. The event benefited the Brooklawn Child Care and Family Services. The goal was to raise $50,000 for the charitable organization. The Concours event drew an estimated 3,000 enthusiast.

For the Inaugural event there were some noted collector car celebrities on hand to help with the show. The Chief Judge was Charles Moyer from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Mr. Moyer has judged some 50 Concours D’ Elegances throughout the country. Famed Actor and Car Collector, Ed Herrmann was the Grand Marshall and also acted as Senior Judge. He is no stranger to Classic Car events. Mr. Herrmann has been the Master of Ceremonies at the Pebble Beach Concours for the past 10 years. The Ceremonially Voice for the Louisville Concours was Mr. Edward Lucas. Mr. Lucas has been the MC for major Car events for the past twenty years.

The Winning Concours Cars and their owners were allowed in the historic Kentucky Derby Winners Circle to receive their awards. Until this event, the Winners Circle has always been reserved for Winners of the Kentucky Derby. The Best of Show Award went to Frank and Milli Ricciardelli with their Magnificent 1935 Duesenberg Dual Cowl Phaeton by LaGrande. The Ricciardelli's reside in Monmouth Beach, New Jersey. In my opinion this Inaugural
Concours Event was quite successful. I am looking forward to attending next years show.
