Bucks D'Elegance a Great Show

On Sunday Sept 11, 2005 Buckingham Twp. had their 7th Annual Concours D'Elegance Automobile Show. It is always top shelf. It draws a large crowd. There is plenty of room to grow. It's a 1 day show with a rain date for the next week.
They had a banner strung accross rte.202 for a week or so advertizing the show

They have used Holicong Park off rte.202 for 7 years. The Twp. advertises the show on the park's sign for free.

Tickets were $5 for adults $3 children. The ticket seller said that they expected well over a thousand but won't know until they count the money. It was a beautiful day, there was a lot of people, I think that 1000 is a conservative estimate.

They had a large tent with the sponsor's banner all over it. Mostly Automobile related businesses I have to assume that the sponsors paid for it. They also had a free pre-show buffet breakfast under the tent for all the people that had cars there.

The cars were great. The registraion fee is $15 per car. I asked a official if he knew how many cars registered he was not sure but he thought at least 300. They had enough room there for three time that amount.

Notice the fire extinquisher by the front wheel? That was a rule the show had "you must have a fire extinquisher readily available" good idea.

Ron and Pat Brown got a trophy for their beautiful 69. At last year's show 3 CCDVers took home trophies George Altmeyer's 62 Coupe, Frank Schmidt's 63 Conv. and James Doan's 61 conv.
