Concours d’Elegance returns to the Inn at St. John’s

One of the unique cars on display at the show is a 1952 Muntz Jet, valued at $250,000.
The Concours d’Elegance of America is Friday to Sunday, July 25-27 at The Inn at St. John’s, 44045 Five Mile Road, Plymouth. The 36th annual event includes two days of auto-related events leading up to the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday. The Sunday event is a world-class exhibition of classic, rare automobiles from different eras along with a vintage car auction.
One of the unique cars on display at the show is a 1952 Muntz Jet, created and built by Earl “Madman” Muntz along with the Muntz TV. Kevin Adell, Word Network and WADL CEO is the owner of the car that is valued at $250,000. Only 300 Muntz Jets were built and today there are only 25 left in the world. The Muntz Jet was built with a Cadillac Motor and is capable of reaching speeds in excess of 150 mph, which was quite an accomplishment 60 years ago.
Tickets for the Sunday event, which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., start at $25. This includes free parking, shuttle and program book.
Children 12 and under get in free with a paying adult. Special VIP passes with onsite parking are available. A portion of the proceeds benefits Yatooma’s Foundation For The Kids, with the mission to help children who have lost a parent.
