How It Started

"I love beautiful, classic cars. Some would call me a car guy. When the Trustees of the Reservation discontinued the annual September Castle Hill Concours d'Elegance in 2003 after 8 years, I felt a loss. When I attended the "Speed, Style and Beauty: Cars from the Ralph Lauren Collection" at the Museum of Fine Arts in 2005, I was inspired. So were other car guys, who agreed to help me put together a combination of these two events. It took 7 years, but September 23, 2012 was the inaugural Classic Car Show on the Boston Common around the Parkman Bandstand where we captured the best of these two events with "People and Vehicles of Special Interest."
