Just received an e-mail blast from the friendly folks at Glenmoor, announcing their 2011 concours.
This year their featured classes will be Avant Garde: Early Front-Wheel Drive, Sixteen Cylinder Motorcars and The Automobiles of Darrin and Ghia-designed cars. What a line-up.
The Darrin class will include a group of 1938-42 Packard Darrin automobiles. I expect we'll see a large number of Cadillac Sixteens and Marmon Sixteens.
The Front-Wheel Drive class is scheduled to include examples of the Cord (both coffin-nose 810 as well as the earlier L29) and Ruxton plus some early European front wheel drive cars, such as the Citroen Traction Avant.
The motorcycle class gets better every year and this year they are featuring vintage British motorcycles. They always have a show field full of interesting American and European classic automobiles.
On Saturday there'll be what's known as Grand Classic, a meet sponsored by Classic Car Club of America's Ohio Region, that will be held on the front lawn of the club on Saturday. It's open to the public. CCCA cars are big American foreign cars from roughly 1925-1948. That same day there'll be a car auction by Classic Motorcar Auction of Canton. They held their first auction at Glenmoor last year and it was pretty good.
