Mich. -- The 36th annual Concours d'Elegance of America
is coming back to The Inn at St. John's in Plymouth on July 27,
2014. It is the fourth year at the Inn and a unique event that
brings together an exciting collection of significant and rare
cars that displays the highest quality in design, craftsmanship
Moss, Chairman of the Board of the Concours d'Elegance, says that
there are collectors from 20 states. The first feature is a collection
of cars from the state of New Jersey. "This show will not
only be the best, but the most diversified," says Moss. Secondly,
is our philosophical move towards our partners. "We are gonna
be more vocal to our partners. This year we have a new partner,
Yatooma's Foundation for the kids," he added.
Yatooma explained that this Foundation is a non-profit organization
dedicated to providing guidance, stability and financial assistance
to families with children who lost mom and dad. "It was started
by my father who died 21 years ago and this charity is doing much
of what it was doing when he was alive. A little bit of money
goes a long way. We are grateful to be involved," he added.
Joseph, head of the car selection committee, says "This isn't
a one-day event. It's a multi-day event." He listed the Friday
events starting with the RM Motor City Auctions-Preview, Autobahn
Night, Motoring Tour and the Plymouth Friday Night Concert in
the Park in downtown Plymouth. On Saturday is the RM Auctions,
Italian happening, City of Northville Preview party and the Saturday
night celebration: High Heels and Wheels, and of course, on Sunday
is the Concours d'Elegance show.

boat," added Joseph. Unlike any other Concours in the world,
Concours d'Elegance of America is dedicated to the "Genius
of the Automobile." It is a unique celebration of exotic,
beautiful and historically important automobiles and the people
behind them: their innovations, designs and technology that influenced
the world. "Our car show has very rare and unusual cars,
not cars that are driving on the road. We will have lots of convertibles
and drag racing bikes. It will be very exciting to see these on
the field," adds Joseph.
the supercars on display will be a 1988 Ferrari Testarossa, a
1988 slant-nose Porsche, and a display of Lamborghinis and an
exhibit of sports cars ranging from the 1909 Alco to a 1972 Ferrari
