Car aficionados attended the 2015 Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance.
More than 250 of the world’s finest, rarest and most exciting classic automobiles were on display for the Greenwich Concours d’ Elegance, 30 and 31 May at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on a verdant peninsula in Greenwich Harbor.
David E. Davis, Jr., noted automotive journalist and founder of Automobile Magazine, when serving as Chief Judge of the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance observed that, "You see cars at Greenwich that you just don't see anywhere else."
The Greenwich Concours d'Elegance, defined as A Festival of Speed and Style, is known as a truly unique event. For openers, it is actually two concours back-to-back, with American cars and motorcycles shown on Saturday, and imported marques shown on Sunday.
Additionally, the location is like no other, a lush, verdant peninsula at the head of Greenwich Harbor, surrounded by water on three sides. It is the only concours with a railroad station a block away (with regular service from New York City), and an I-95 exit ramp right at the Concours entrance. Greenwich Avenue, with its luxury stores and restaurants, is walking distance away.
This year the only Ferrari P3/4 race car ever built, was driven to the event by its owner, this year’s Grand Marshal, Jim Glickenhaus.
