Americana Manhasset Concours d’Elegance – Manhasset, New York

October 27th, 2011 by Stu

What is the world coming to when a Concours d’Elegance is held at a Long Island shopping mall. Yeah yeah…it’s a fancy shopping mall, but a shopping mall nonetheless. Surroundings aside, there were a fair number of classy rides on site. The the Dusenberg that took best in show and the Ferrari 275 GTB that stole my heart (below) There were also a fair number of low brow modern models that had no business rearing their faces at such an event. An entire row of late model Carerras and Boxsters, for instance, were among the puzzling entries that caused little more than yawn as you walked by. They need a few years to mature.┬áIn typical concours fashion, the parking lot looked nearly as good as the show floor. I counted Bugattis, Super Veloce Lamborghinis and countless other amazing rides.

Overall, a pretty solid show save for the LIE traffic required to get there.
