The Elegance at Hershey, Part Three: Awards Presentation, June 11, 2017

With all the effort that owners make to get their cars to concours events, organizers tend to recognize as many as they can with a lot of different prizes.  The Elegance was no exception and while the awards list is here to look at, it was an opportunity to see the cars in motion as they were driven to the marquee where the trophies were located.  It was also a chance to take some photos of cars missed earlier.  The Elegance makes an effort to really be elegant with the awards ladies dressed in period clothing.

Driving home from Hershey on my birthday the next day we enjoyed a pleasant ride along familiar Interstate I-81 through Pennsylvania and New York State.  Arriving back in Ottawa, we discovered that every insect in this part of the world had attached itself to the front of the Corvette.  Not concours appearance anymore--and all those cars at The Elegance were transported home in semi-trailers-- but easily removed thanks to the protective film installed!
