“Concours d’Elegance is a French term for a competition of elegance, dating back to the days when the 17th century French aristocracy paraded fine horses and elegant carriages in the parks of Paris during summer weekends and holidays. Over time, the carriages became horseless, and the gatherings became a celebration of fine motorcars and the elegant lifestyle.”
