Featured At This Year's Concours
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Cincinnati Concours d'Elegance the organizers invited past winners of Best in Show and Best in Class. They divided it into three classes. Today we'll see the Pre-War winners of yore. There was this 1928 Auburn 8-88 Boattail Speeder that had won Best in Show in 2015.
A Best of Class winner from 2008 was this 1941 Indian 4 motorcycle. The sound of its 40 horse power engine was accentuated with a period customization of its exhaust known as "organ pipes."
A 1932 Nash Model 1073 Victoria Convertible was the Best in Class winner in 2014. This is one of only five known to still exist.
The winner of Best in Show at the very first concours was this 1909 Buick Model 10. It got 22.5 horse power form its 166 cubic inch inline four engine.
A repeat Best in Class winner was this 1928 Isotta-Fraschini 8A SS Boattail Convertible Coupe. The car, which won its class last year and again this year, was originally purchased by aviation pioneer Harry Williams and his silent movie star wife Marguerite Clark.
This 1938 Steyr 220 Glasser Cabriolet won Best in Show back in 2013. Steyr was an Austrian company with the German firm Glasser supplying the body. This car was originally used as a demonstrator.
