Concours d'Elegance Was a Step Back in Time at The Muny in Forest Park
by Betty Moore, betty@slfp.com
St. LOUIS, (SLFP.com), March 27, 2016 - It's been an Easter tradition for 55 years as the Concours d'Elegance returned this year, March 27, 2016, to Forest Park.

Although the forecast called for showers and brisk winds, thousands of antique car lovers and families came to Forest Park to enjoy viewing classic vehicles and spending time visiting with collectors and other enthusiasts.

This year, the Horseless Carriage Club (HCCM) was able to present the show on the newly renovated Upper Parking lot at The Muny. The redesign of the area provided an opportunity to set up special sections for displaying various vehicles.

St. Louisans have enjoyed a long history and love affair with cars. This show featured a blend of beautifully restored vintage automobiles, side by side with classic models and colorful kit car replicas.

The air was pungent with the savory smell of kettle corn and BBQ, mixed in with the equally pungent exhaust of revving engines. Folks laughed and visited with car owners as kids used their phones to take photos to share with friends.

"This is the car that built America," a father proudly told his young son, as they walked past a row of beautifully restored vintage Fords, including a 1928 Model A.

Nearby, a young woman was relating a story how her father bought a 56 Chevrolet on the day her sister was born. He loveingly restored the car and it has remained in the family ever since.

An owner of a classic 1941 Cadillac Sedan graciously opened the hood with its unique ornament for an older couple. They eagerly took a look at the engine as they listened to the historical significance of its design.

A row of colorful Moon Cars, built in St. Louis, was a highlight of the show, as owners delighted in telling visitors how they came to own the vehicles.

Nearby, on The Lower Muny parking lot, thousands of street rods fans spent the afternoon viewing hundreds of models at the "30th Annual Real Easter Show" in Forest Park. The St. Louis Street Rod Association pulled out all stops to celebrate their 42nd anniversary.
