Rather slow year at the Milwaukee Concours. Now we know why they did not publish the displayed car list!!! Still a few good ones including a Bugatti, several vintage Indy and a very nice Alfa Romeo long wheel base 2.3, maybe the most expensive car on the lawn.

I thought the show was pretty good - however this is what I would rate as my first true concours.

I brought some non-car people and they loved it!

Is the Ronald McDonald car show happening this year? I went to the website and didn't see it listed as an event.

Glad you had fun. It was down a little this year with only 1 vintage Ferrari. I hope Geneva is good again this year. That event is also free and set in a lovely little town.

For October 28th nothing, but Fuelfed has the Winnetka event on Sunday October 29th from 9AM-11AM. That event is very nice and every month with some rare cars always showing up.

Thanks, but bright sun makes everything look better.

Here are 2 sets of before and after pictures. These are the two 488 Challenge cars that came in at Continental a few weeks ago fresh from the factory and how they look today.

And here is the new 488 Challenge being run from LFSC's. Great to have 2 big local Ferrari dealers supporting this event.

Minnesota Collector but taken care off by Continental so it's often around. I have seen it 4 times since it landed in the Midwest.

Geneva Concours is always a great event and the weather so far looks great. The Fuelfed events have always been good but I assume most would head over to Geneva.
