Concours d’Elegance

Rendezvous of the Greats

The Concours D’Elegance will once again be held in the closed off streets of beautiful downtown Chattanooga’s West Village. Spectators will be able to get a close-up view of some very rare, historically significant cars.   Last year’s Best in Show went to a 1967 Ferrari 275GTB/4 NART Spyder owned by the Rare Wheels Collection, while the Timeless Elegance Award went to Jack Boyd Smith’s 1936 Packard 12.  The People’s Choice award went to Jeff Hardin’s 1950 Buick Special.  The Chattanooga Motorcar Festival welcomes back Chief Mike Tillson.
