Cincinnati Concours
« on: January 31, 2022, 02:47:01 PM »
I see the Cincinnati Concours will be featuring, among others, the 60th anniversary of Shelby American

Anyone planning on entering?

It's a week before our Convention.

I'm a recruiter for the show and I'll be showing my '67 GT500.
We can use cars. 
I can provide info on how nominate your car for the show.

Thanks for the post.

The Cincinnati Concours Invitational is truly a class showing.
We were accepted by the Invitational committee for a factory werks car we have.
The Invitational is first class all the way and politics seemed to be non-existent.
A very enjoyable and welcoming group.
I would recommend that a person participate in the pre showing events, one was at the airport as I recall.
Against all odds with competition from Porsche, Mercedes, Corvettes, Lambo's etc, we managed a Blue Ribbon in the factory werks race class and a rather large 1st place crystal trophy in another class.

We would highly recommend anybody with a Shelby, Cobra or GT 40 to enter and participate.
Congrats to SFM5S159 for being a recruiter for the event !

They have already impressed me by spelling “concours” correctly

Thank you for the kind words about our concours. 
I am also a judge, and no, there aren't politics that I'm aware of anyway.  Just a sold group of people in the mid-west lucky enough to host a world-class event with some world-class automobiles.

Tired sheep,
It seems that organizations around the World spell it in different ways.
Why, I do not know, perhaps just a slang type thing?
I just go with the flow though.

SFM5S159, no thanks needed my friend !
It is a class act Invitational.
As mentioned, an enjoyable and welcoming group.
Respectfully,
John
