The upcoming car season promises to be great for gearheads

While it’s cold and snowy, we got to thinking about the upcoming car show season and decided it would be a good idea to list a number of “big time” events so you can mark some dates on your new calendar. This just a sampling of events we know you will enjoy, with plenty more out there.

The 13th annual Dayton Concours d’Elegance at Carillon Park will be Sept. 15. This year will feature the Grand Classics, elegant machines with names like Packard, Rolls-Royce, Pierce-Arrow, Duesenberg, Bentley and Cadillac. The Concours also will honor the 50th anniversary of the Pontiac Trans-Am. The weekend also features a casual Preview Party on Saturday evening, Sept. 14 at Carillon Historical Park.

There you have it, car lovers. The Miami Valley is going to be ripe with great automotive events again in 2019. Now fill your calendar!
