For the second time in just two weeks Scarsdale Village was the setting for a major event on Sunday October 5th. Following the Southern Westchester Food and Wine Festival on September 21, the Scarsdale Concours d'Elegance returned for their 11th annual auto show on the streets of downtown Scarsdale. I am not a car buff, but I couldn't help but be impressed with the amazing array of vintage cars on display. There were some that dated back to the era of Henry Ford, convertibles with big wings, plus a Cadillac Eldorado, Fiats, Porsches and corvettes that reminded me of just how old I am.
The cars aren't only beautiful ... they are valuable. I asked the owner of this 1911 Packard what it's worth and he told me the last offer he turned down was for $1.2 million. Pretty good considering that he found the car in a barn in January 2007 in good condition and restored it.
Check out this 1958 Chevy Impala, 1963 Corvette, and this 1948 Tucker that looks like it belongs on a movie set.
Cars aside, with the Del Bocas playing good old-fashioned rock 'n roll and Lange's grilling outside the event had all the makings of a wonderful street party.
Proceeds will be donated to Scarsdale and Edgemont Family Counseling Service, The Warrior and Family Assistance Fund and the Scarsdale Foundation.
