Vintage and rare cars wow crowds at the Geneva Concours d’Elegance
Car enthusiasts took to the streets and sidewalks of downtown Geneva on Sunday to get a glimpse of some of the rare vintage vehicles and celebrate milestone years for a trio of historic names in the automotive world.
The Geneva Concours d’Elegance drew car owners from across the country to show off their prized cars on 3rd Street and compete for one of the event’s “Benz” trophies.
“This show is really cool because it’s in a downtown area. It’s very accessible to people.” said Alan Blum of River Forest, who exhibited his 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III.
This year’s show showcased the first cars built in the Chicago area and celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvair and the 100th anniversary of automakers Duesenberg and Citroën.
As well as giving everyone a good show, the event also benefited a good cause, with support going to the LivingWell Cancer Resource Center.
