It attracts more than 250 of the most exotic and valuable automobiles ever made. Concours Sunday follows a week of auto related events with the theme, "The art that moves us&masha celebration of the power and the beauty of the automobile." Some special features of this year's Concours include a tribute to the great Italian masterpiece, Alfa Romeo; a tribute to the 1957 convertible with examples of the finest automobiles created in this iconic year in auto design. In addition, for the first time ever, historic motorcycles will be on display at Concours. Dubbed Forty Fours, this will be the largest gathering of four cylinder motorcycles ever presented. "The Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance is a one of a kind opportunity to trace the evolution of the automobile in terms of its design and its place in the history of the world," said Larry Smith, Chairman of the Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance and president of Autometric Collision. "That's why we thought it was so important to encourage young people to participate in the Concours and we developed this special program for college students." "We look to the next generation, as the keepers of the heritage of the automobile and we are anxious to share our passion for automobiles with them." Tickets for non-CCS students will be available on the day of the Concours.
