Based on the sublime weather we enjoyed Sunday, it’s clear the gods love cars as much as we do. Yes, the sun was shining, the temperature was a comfortable 68 and there were heavenly rides as far as the eye could see. Old ones, new ones, British ones, Italian ones, American ones, pre-war ones…well, you get the picture. The gathering of precious metal from around the world represented perhaps the best showing yet (150 cars) for the 7th annual Scarsdale Concours d’Elegance, which is held smack dab in the middle of downtown Scarsdale each year. The show was started by a couple of Scarsdale car-loving high school kids (Evan Cygler and Dennis O’Leary) back in ’03 as a means of getting a lot of great cars in the same place at the same time. Among the entrants, a positively gorgeous 1928 Vauxhall Hurlingham Speedster that nabbed best of show honors. Also of note, a seriously pink Lamborghini Espada, Pininfarina-bodied Corvette and flock of massive Cadillac tail fins from a time luxury cars were long than many of todays small yachts.
Co-founder Evan Cygler was good enough to invite Man on the Move to participate in the judging, which allowed yours truly to wear a cool red “Judge” ribbon and equally cool red tie. The rules and judging standards were quite relaxed compared to most of the stuffy concours shows of the Pebble Beach variety, but we had a great time picking our favorites for categories like Best Super Car, Best Muscle Car and Most Outstanding Coachwork. The show has been pretty well received over the years. So much so, that the town of Scarsdale will officially take over its operation moving forward so that young Evan can focus on his career now that he is out of college.
Go get ’em Evan!
