PLYMOUTH, Mich. -- The Concours d'Elegance of America is at the Inn at St. John's for the third year in a row. This event will be held on Sunday, July 28, 2013. It is one of the most prestigious showings of "by invitation only" classic, rare and magnificent vehicles in the world.

The Inn at St. John's offers 200 acres of landscaped countryside and the most beautiful grounds for this showcase of vehicles. These vehicles compete for honors during this show. It offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to see so many valuable and expensive automobiles at one place and at one time. The total field is valued at well over 10 million dollars.

During this event, the Michigan Philharmonic will be performing classic tunes, which are appropriately aligned with classic automobiles.

What will be new this year? There will be dealer Super Cars, eleven cars from various dealers. Also the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 model Corvettes and some high profile race cars.

Brian Joseph, the Committee Chairman of Selection, has chosen 275 of the most prestigious vehicles for this event. "We locate cars that are worthy of this event," says Joseph. The Concours d'Elegance of America is dedicated to the "Genius of the Automobile." It is about their innovations, designs and technology that influenced the world.

Joseph also ran down the list in a nutshell the different classes of cars that will be shown. From the London class, which is the beginning of the automobile - before 1905, to the Gaslight class from 1908-1914, the Jazz Age from 1915-1927, then moving on to the American Popular from 1928-1942, the American Classics which are more expensive than the Popular class. Next is the Detroit Iron and Indianapolis Iron, Pre-war European, American Post War, Muscle cars-Dealer Super Cars, Post war Sports, Post War European, Vintage Nascar, Electric cars from past until now, Jet Age convertibles and some exotic cars that ran in the world famous "Great Race." Joseph adds, "We will also have a 1939 Bugatti which is one of the last Bugatti's ever built. It is absolutely stunning."
