hen top-of-the-line
antique and collector
cars come together at
this year's Meadow Brook Concours
d'Elegance, onlookers can thank Larry
Moss and his volunteer Car Selection
Committee for the choices.
Moss, a collector active with the
Concours for more than a decade,
takes pride in finding what he terms
"the best of the best" vehicles to show-
case at the annual event, now in its
30th year.
The Concours runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 3, on the grounds of
Oakland University in Rochester,
where the mix includes General
Motors' design triumphs to celebrate
the 100th anniversary of the corpo-
ration as well as Ferraris, Bentleys,
Grand Prix racers and even a vehicle
that be driven and flown.
"The diversity of cars we'll have
this time is unlike anything we've ever
had:' says Moss, 57, who has served
as chairman of the entire Concours.
"We'll have 230 cars in the show and
300 on the grounds."
Moss, who lives in West Bloomfield
and works in wealth management for
Raymond James Associates, has been
a car hobbyist since his youth, notic-
ing vehicles along his Oak Park news-
paper route. While he drives a Chrysler
300 Hemi, he owns a 1947 Cadillac, a
1960 Jaguar and a 1932 Ford among
other vehicles.
The car selection chairman, a mem-
ber of the Michigan Region Classic
Car Club of America, attends many
auto shows around the country, gets
to know the owners and contacts the
people with cars he believes would
make the Concours exciting.
"Besides being able to see the great-
est cars in the world gathered in one


PAsiv.,94A, cavOeiov

place, people can participate in a
number of fun events, including some
being offered for the first time this
year:' says Moss, who shares his special
interest with his wife, Patty, who also
joins him in membership at Temple
Israel and Tam-O-Shanter Country
Club, both in West Bloomfield.
The events, with some additional
costs, get off the ground on Thursday
evening, July 31, with the second
annual Hangar Party at the Oakland
Airport. The Saab Performance Drive
Team, a three-man squad, will per-
form complex synchronized maneu-
Friday's events include the Meadow
Brook Concours Motoring Tour and
the Art Reception and Art Auction.
Saturday's specials feature historic
races at the Waterford Hills Raceway
as well as the RM Classic Car Auction
and cooking and wine seminars on the
Meadow Brook grounds.
While devoted driving fans can
attend Ferrari seminars, everyone can
try unique foods served by gourmet
vendors and find special items at
shops showing private label collec-
Dream Car Garage, on the SPEED
channel, will be filming on Sunday for
broadcast in 2009.
"Because these are collector cars,
this is not a green event:' Moss says.
"These are very high-priced, distinc-
tive vehicles."

The Meadow Brook Concours
d'Elegance runs 10 a.m.-4
p.m. Sunday, Aug. 3, on the
grounds of Oakland University in
Rochester. $25 adults, free for
