As I approached the entrance gate at the 2017 Concorso Italiano, I thought how fortunate I was to find this annual event so near to home.
I took a moment to reflect on its importance to me, and probably to mostly other attendees too.
What does Concorso bring each and every year?
We all know it brings droves of Italian Automobiles.
But Concorso brings automotive glamor too.
Cars are immaculately prepared by their owners, and in arrive in show condition.
There are so many of them, usually numbering around a thousand.
There are some extremely rare cars in the mix.
Concorso brings us the individual story of these rare cars, often told by the owners themselves as the cars traverse and pause on the automotive stage during the day, while the owners relate their background.
