More than $100 million dollars’ worth of automotive excellence graced the French Lick Resort the first weekend in October for the 2013 Louisville Concours d’Elegance. Despite a torrential downpour, the show was success and raised money for the Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.
A 1931 Stutz Victoria Convertible, owned by Richard and Irena Mitchell, of Montgomery, Texas, took home the “Best in Show” Award. Other notable award winners included 103-year-old Margaret Dunning with her 1930 Packard Roadster (Spirit of Concours Award), Cliff & Dede Ernst with their 1932 Packard Victoria Convertible (People’s Choice Award) and Stephen Barrett’s 1959 Corvette Roadster (Chairman’s Award)
In addition to the special awards, classes for trophies included Packards, American Classics, Post-War and Corvettes.
