Trump Charlotte Concours d’Elegance 2018

We just returned from the 2018 Trump Concours d’Elegance held at the Trump Golf Course in Mooresville NC. The site is on the shores of Lake Norman, the largest man made lake in the US. It is a beautiful area. The weather before the show was terrible but on the day of the event it was fabulous. This was with out a doubt one of the best organized events we have attended. Not only were the volunteers helpful and friendly they were everywhere. My wife and I never had a bad situation during the entire three days we were on site. Leading up to the event the email communications were the best I have ever seen. The day before I asked several email questions and had responses within minutes.

We arrived before sunrise to prepare for the show and the view over the lake was breathtaking.

The grounds and facilities are top notch and just absolutely beautiful and the food was outstanding. I have not one bad thing to say about the event. The weather was raining up to the day of the Concours requiring the entire show field to be rearranged and cars moved to different locations. What could have been a real disaster was handled calmly, professionally and rapidly. My hat is off to everyone involved.

Most importantly, the cars attending were also outstanding with examples of some very rare and expensive collector cars in every class. My wife and I always try to pick our favorite car at any show and it was impossible at the Trump Charlotte Concours d’Elegance 2018 even!

Next time I will post some of out favorite cars but for now there is one more thing; we were showing our 1969 Dodge Daytona and it received one of only 4 Special Awards handed out at the Show. We received the Sponsor’s Award presented by Streetside Classics who was the Presenting Sponsor for the event!

Katrina and I were shocked to receive the Sponsors Special Award but also thrilled beyond words and very proud of our Daytona.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
