And Now For Something Entirely Different: The 1976 Cat III

While walking the grounds of the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance, you'd have been excused if you mistook this next vehicle as nothing more than a shadow, or perhaps a garbage bag that had gotten away. What we have here is the creation of Swiss tinkerer Rudy Kurth, a machine dubbed the Cat III. Hand-built in… »8/04/08 6:00pm8/04/08 6:00pm

Lamborghini Reventon Makes First Drive Straight to Meadow Brook Concours

We grabbed a couple of words with the proud new owner of one of eleven US-bound Lamborghini Reventons at the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance on Sunday. Apparently he had driven it off the lot that day, straight to its spot on the Concours. Aside from causing a permanent priapism, the Reventon is Lambo's most… »8/04/08 2:20pm8/04/08 2:20pm

2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance Hangar Party, Complete With Taylor Aerocar

While we didn't personally attend the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance Hangar Party, reader extraordinaire SubyRex sure managed to. Last night's Hangar Party was the second-annual installment, held at the Oakland Country Airport — what better place to show off a 1932 Helicron in action and have the 1952 Taylor… »8/01/08 2:20pm8/01/08 2:20pm

EXCLUSIVE: Alfa Romeo Bertone BAT 11 Concept Makes North American Debut!

The Alfa Romeo Bertone BAT 11 may have evaded our lenses when it made an off-site debut at the Geneva Auto Show last March, but not this time. Now we've got the first live shots of the BAT 11 on American soil. The artfully-designed car was revealed today at the press event ahead of this weekend's 2008 Meadow Brook… »7/29/08 3:41pm7/29/08 3:41pm

Aerocar To Be Displayed At 2008 Meadow Brook Concours, Land In Our Dreams

What would a car show be without a flying car? Frankly, we don't want to know, which is why we're glad the Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance, taking place Sunday, August 3, is playing host to the Taylor Aerocar. Built in 1956, this is perhaps the most successful flying car of all time. That's right, despite our… »6/17/08 10:40am6/17/08 10:40am

The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Revs Engine A Bit, Gets Ready To Race Grandma


We know yesterday was Maximum Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Day, but we've got so much good content from our day at the Meadowbrook Concours d'Elegance, we just had to show you. For instance — the above video we somehow managed to smuggle out of the glove-switching hands of the folks at Fast Lane Daily — it's the… »8/02/07 11:15am8/02/07 11:15am
