They already had some specifics nailed down, just wanted to know if there would be sufficient club interest.
Let’s see… a gathering of great cars (with safe parking), very good food (on the Gandy Dancer Patio) and awesome ARPCA people. Yep, do it! But, let’s put on a nice show for the crowds at Station Square since we’re taking over their street…queue Concours Chair Brian… make it a contest.

The competition was tough but in the end three iconic cars decisively rose to the top in voting. Concours winners were:
More pics and details in the November issue Rundschau but thanks to all who attended and again to John & Lisa for putting on a fantastic event. We cannot wait to see how you top yourselves in 2014 [hint-hint]!
