Hello Everyone,

The 2018 Geneva Concours d'Elegance happened today in the 90+ degree humid heat, under mostly sunny skies, along quaint tree-lined Third Street in Geneva, IL - with Chrysler 300 Letter Cars as a feature marque. The event was spectacular, far beyond my highest expectations. John Begian and I left my home in this very early morning, driving the 35 miles to Geneva in a gradually thickening pea soup fog - visibility was easily less than 50 feet the last few miles cruising there. I can't begin to thank all the participants enough for bringing their legendary beauties! As one observer commented to his friend - "These were the original Muscle Cars before anyone knew what Muscle Cars were!" - How True! 

I know it's long, but here's my Thank You list to all who attended!
