The 2009 Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance was held Sunday, August 2nd on the grounds of Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, Michigan.
The 30th annual Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance featured more than 230 cars and motorcycles, including over 80 cars representing “The Best of Detroit,” plus Italian specialties like the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, Fiat 8V Supersonic, Dino 206 Competizione and Ferrari P3/4. In addition, the Mode du Concours presented ‘Sirens of Chrome’ models dressed in period auto show costumes.
“Best of Show” honors were bestowed upon a 1934 Packard V-12 Sport Sedan by Dietrich (American) owned by Ray Scherr of California and a 1939 Delahaye 165 Cabriolet by Figoni et Falaschi (Foreign) from the Peter Mullin Foundation of California. Mullin’s Delahaye also won the “People’s Choice” award.
Photographer Nathan Leach-Proffer documented this year’s Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance with a superb picture gallery of the cars on and around the Meadow Brook Hall grounds. This is the first time (of what we anticipate will be many) Nathan’s work has been featured on Sports Car Digest. We hope you enjoy his photos as much as we do.
