    Both Brad and I have been invited and accepted to bring our cars to this event. The event will be held on September 16-18, with the Concours show taking place on Sunday the 18th.

    Brad will be taking his 70 GSX Show Car and I will be taking the 69 Motion Equipped GS. This will be the second Concours show the 69 has been invited to and it will be the first for Brad.

    They will be having 15 classes, with 8 cars per class. We will be in the “Limited Production GM (50’s & 60’s) class, which is for Prototypes, Design Study cars, and cars of Special Interest. Having at least 2 Buicks out of a class of 8 cars is really incredible.

    Being asked to attend one of these shows is a big thing. I attribute this to the uniqueness of these vehicles and to the high quality they were restored to by Nick Servo, for my car, and Dave Kleiner, for Brad’s car.

    Beyond the Concours show, they will be displaying the cars of Harley Earl, who brought us the Buick “Y” job, the 1951 Le Sabre show car and others. There will be other display cars as well.

    Just wanted to let you guys know about the show. Hopefully we will see some of you on Sunday.

    If someone could post a link to this event I would appreciate it.

    Congrats to both of you. Was at the Concours d America in 2018 when it was at The Inn at St John's. Hagerty bought the event recently and moved it to Detroit this year and renamed it The Detroit Concours. This is the first year it is in Detroit. Have a great time. It is always an honor to be invited to a Concours. Was at the Greenbrier Concours this year with the Yellow 73 Stage1 Sun Coupe and the Stage1 4 speed two years before that where it won a Springhouse Award. I have another Concours event I was invited to coming up after Detroit with the 4 Speed, will post about that when the time comes.

    Brad and Duane have a great time as I'm sure you will do well representing the Group. At least you can educate people while you are there;):D
