More than160 vehicles traveled to the largest auto museum in North America to be on display for a weekend of celebrating historic cars at the 13th annual Pacific Northwest Concours d’Elegance.

The event at America’s Car Museum (ACM) brought together 1,200 attendees from across the U.S. and Canada for a three-day weekend of auto enthusiast-approved entertainment, including a 100-mile Tour d’ Jour through picturesque roads of Puget Sound, a Dinner d’Elegance with gourmet cuisine from James Beard Award winning chef Tom Douglas and a live and silent auction, and, of course, the Concours.

Emceed by Paul Ianuario and Keith Martin, owner of Sports Car Market and winner of the Edward Herman Award, the Concours brought a diverse combination of historic and contemporary collector vehicles from McClaren, Packard, Cord, Ducati and many others.

Winner of the Ascent Best of Show Award was the 1932 Auburn Speedster, and Roll-Royce was the featured marque. Among the winners this year were a 1937 Rolls-Royce PIII Tourer in the Elegance of Rolls Royce class, a 1906 Cadillac Runabout in the Antiques class and a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse in the Super Cars class.

“The Pacific Northwest Concours is always a success when we have such great entrants,” said CEO of ACM, David Madeira. “Every year, incredible cars are brought in to be judged and enjoyed, and we celebrate each of the vehicles for their beauty and ability to capture pieces of history.”

Net proceeds from the Concours benefited the Hagerty Education Program at America’s Car Museum, a grant-giving program supporting educational programs, scholarships and paid internships and apprenticeships for students to gain skills in preserving and restoring vintage vehicles like many winning vehicles presented at the Concours.
