In some ways, we're not big on the Concours phenomenon in the sense that these cars tend to be owned by very rich, very anal-retentive men. We are neither of those things. On the other hand, it's wonderful to see historic vehicles restored and on display for the proles to wonder over, like the '36 Delahaye Falaschi coupe pictured here, for example, at the just-past Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance. (Say "Kon-koor Delegonse," please.) The Car Connection's got a show report a well as a great batch of photos. If stupid-rare and stunningly restored or preserved vehicles Hardcastle your McCormick, get thee to clicking posthaste.
