As promised, this is more. As you can see from the fountain sprays above, there was very little breeze, the sun was very bright and the temperature and the humidity were quite uncomfortable, but the conditions were much better than last year with the rain and then the tornado warning.
At the end of the show TLBC was awarded the Most Elegant trophy for the Sport and Racing Category. However the next award was, in my mind, a very special and favorite recognition. This is not a commercial plug, but as you may know, Hagerty sponsors a Youth Judging program in a effort to get youngsters of today involved with the concours and judging aspects of our hobby. Under the tutelage of an experienced car judge the youngsters are given score sheets and are instructed on how to listen to the car presenter, ask any pertinent questions, and then look over the car. Once they have finished they fill out their check lists and move on to the next car. When TLBC received the First Place trophy in the Youth Judges Choice Award HelenAnn and I had large smiles because the children have not yet formed the strong car biases or preferences that most of us have, they don't really understand provenance and early history but they do know what delights their eyes and minds. Thus a special award in my view.
