Like trimming the Christmas tree, it takes a while to go from simply putting it up to getting it right and The Barrington Concours is fast approaching being the best dressed tree on the block.
“The Barrington Concours is headed back to being a public event starting next year”, says Patty Doud-Schmitz, chairman of the event for the last 5 years.
In its 6th year, The Barrington Concours will take place the weekend of July 14th-15th with a 40 mile road rally winding into the surrounding countryside on Saturday followed by the Concours on Sunday.
2012 will feature Italian automobiles and motorcycles, with collectors from around the US set to show off vehicles both rare and beautiful.
Expect Ferrari, Lamborghini Maserati and Alfa Romeo, of course, but you will also find the likes of Stanguellini, Geneta, Pantera, Italia and bikes from Gilera, Moto Guzzi, Moto Morini…and others.
My friend Martin Hancock and I will be calling on some of you personally and we are hoping others with interesting cars will share their special stuff with a knowledgeable car crowd eager to learn more about your car’s history.
Drop us a line as we would love the opportunity to discuss your entry in the show. Seriously guys, I know where you park…
