The 2018 Concours d’Elegance will be back this weekend for its third year at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort in Braselton.
Existing concours shows are held in places like Amelia Island, Fla., and along the California coast. But Wallet’s event is the first in the Atlanta area.
The two-day event will feature about 160 cars built, generally speaking, between 1900 and 1968. The majority will date back to before World War II and all of them will look as good as, if not better than, the day they were built, according to Bill Wallet, co-founder of the event.
Special attractions will include four different cars from Duesenberg (an Indiana manufacturer of race cars and luxury vehicles that operated between 1913 and 1937); two “older Bugattis”; and 30 different “brass cars.” The latter is used to refer to cars made roughly between 1896 and 1915, the early years of American automotive manufacturing.
The cars come from all over the country.
The 2018 event will be held Sept. 29 and 30. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit atlantaconcours.org.
