When one typically thinks of a Concours d’Elegance, it generally happens in an idyllic setting on a clear day with pleasant weather. Classic cars of unimaginable rarity and expense are typically being shown and judged on a clean and trimmed golf green while the sun shines above. But as Blake Z. Rong says in this piece on Petrolicious “You can spend seven figures and win a concours, but you can’t control the weather.” While it can be exciting to see old cars outside and away from a spotless garage or museum, it’s a special and rare treat to see them dealing with the realities of inclement weather. In this piece by Blake Z. Rong, with photography by Kieran Buttrick, Blake goes over some of the cars in attendance that day and muses about how the rain changed his perception and experience of cars like these. Check out the article and photos over on Petrolicious.
