The 2013 Elegance at Hershey – Matthew Little Photography

As befits a concours held in a town whose name is synonymous with collectible cars, “The Elegance” at Hershey always attracts some fine automobiles. This year’s event certainly lived up to the high standards of previous years. Our feature photo today shows the graceful, streamlined nose of Tommy Lee’s 1937 Talbot-Lago T150C SS Tear Drop Coupe. It was one of many unique motorcars on the show field photographed by The Old Motor contributor, Matthew Little.

                

L to R (above) : Bob and Sandy Bahre’s unrestored 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C2900 garnered the “Best of Show” award. One of only five or six ever built, this 1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt could hardly look more different than the Alfa. A 1929 Willys-Knight Roadster (above, right) cuts a dashing figure in two shades of  green.

L to R (above) : This enormous 1914 Locomobile Model 38 Berline sports unique aluminum coachwork by Kellner. A distinctive two tone paint scheme contrasts dramatically with the stately shape of this Pierce-Arrow. The coachwork on this 1914 Renault EF Victoria evokes horse drawn days.

  1. David, I’ve never been to another concours, but enjoy this one very much. There is always a good mix of types of cars, as the pics show. The setting behind the Hotel could not be better. The brown Pierce was once owned by Milton Hershey.
