In the spirit of a true Concours d’Elegance, the Committee has elected to use a subjective style of judging. Rather than placing 100% emphasis on an automobile’s condition and restoration, true Concours judging takes into account the impact of the car as an art object, as well as the emotional response elicited by a vehicle’s historical provenance. Thus, we are placing an emphasis on design and historical significance in the equation.

Each car will be judged based upon the following criteria:
