"There are car shows, and then there are car shows. We’ve been showing our Jeep and Studebaker for several years. Been to many shows, received some great trophies, and have had lots of fun. Last year was different. A major plus. We were fortunate enough to attend the first annual Colonial Concours d’Elegance . We had a wonderful time. "
"I bought VIP tickets for my husband and children to celebrate his 60th birthday at the Colonial Concours. He said it was the best gift ever!"
