    Hi,

    Every year I attend the Geneva Concours which is a large car show spread across a quaint, downtown of Geneva, Illinois. Geneva is right next to St. Charles, a nice suburb of Chicago, that used to have the Mecum Auctions. I would venture to say Mecum will focus on Schaumburg vs. Pheasant Run in the future.

    Anyway, the Geneva Concours is an amazing, amazing show overall but is very underserved for Muscle Cars and related. Tons of Porsche, Ferrari, Packards, plenty of Brass-Cars, Cadillacs, Rolls, no so many 57's or even 'Vettes.

    My goal is to gather as many people from the Midwest for the show next year. It happens at the end of August, super-hot usually (95-ish) but almost always beautiful out. I think if we could come in force it would be great.

    Again, great show, completely underserved and would be appreciated by all. A good friend is a key member of the Porsche Club and is often an overall judge. I will see where we can be placed.

    Good times.

    Would love to attend. Are you sure they will accept a bunch of muscle cars? Jim

    Yes, they must make room for the "little people" of the world vs. the big shots.
