Troy, Michigan – One of the premier classic and collector car shows in the country, the 2010 Concours d’Elegance of America at Meadow Brook will showcase how Detroit shaped the automotive industry by creating unique cars throughout history. This year, Speedsters, Space-Age Sport Coupes, and Factory Experimental Drag Cars of the 1960s will be featured.
The vintage car display, to be held July 25th, will also feature four Motorama concept cars from the collection of renowned auto archeologist, Joe Bortz.
