After an amazing amount of positive feedback, the Philadelphia International Auto Show rolled out round two of some of the most tricked out and tuned vehicle offerings ever seen! Scion, Mazda, Ford, Lincoln Mercury, Honda, Acura and General Motors will fill 20,000 square feet of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and showcase why owning one of their vehicles can be anything but ordinary! A vehicle should make a statement about who is driving, and these manufacturers are ready to deliver a truly unique look into how their product can be modified to fit your personality and lifestyle.
DUB Magazine once again brought out its Celebrity Vehicle Showcase. This year, featured vehicles include a completely off-the-wall Mercedes SL 55 owned by Bernard Hopkins . And Philly fans will definitely not want to miss a Lamborghini, painted Laker's Gold and formerly owned by PA native Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, the guy knows how to ride in style!
Two concours events were on hand to display some of the prestigious vehicles from the yester-years.
Buckingham Concours D'Elegance
The Buckingham Auto Show is the brain child of Al Pincus and Ralph Tompkins, who became concerned with the loss of farm land and open space in Buckingham Township.
They presented their idea of an antique auto show and dinner annually to raise funds to purchase farmers development rights to the Board of Supervisors five years ago.
Concours D'Elegance of the Eastern U.S.
The Concours celebrates the history of the automotive industry and its evolutionary blis. Each car presented at a Concours d'Elegance, having been invited after a discriminating review process, is believed to be perfect. It is a show that highlights a time that most of us do not remeber from personal experience, but love to visit in the recollections of our seniors, and in the romance of our imaginations. We envision it to have been a simpler time - a time when life moved more slowly and with more dignity. Indeed, the engineering and flash of the cars from that era, as viewed on the Concours show field, lend credence to that deduction.
