Santa Fe Concorso -- Trophy Winners, September 2011

The second Santa Fe Concorso was held on Sept. 25, 2011. It was a strong successor to a very successful inaugural effort in 2010. As before, the venue was the La Mesita Equestrian Center. And, once again, the event and the panel of judges were graced by the presence of Sir Stirling Moss, Al Unser, Sr., and Denise McCluggage. This year, they were joined by fellow racing legends Bobby Allison and Bob Bondurant.

This is the second of my three galleries on the 2011 Concorso. It features entries that won "Best of Show" ("of" per trophies), "Best in Class" and special awards, emerging into the limelight from a field of about 75 top-notch vehicles.

For me, the cars were naturally the main attraction. But several wonderful "bonuses" also came my way, namely meeting Sir Stirling Moss and wife Lady Susie Moss, Denise McCluggage, restorer Paul Russell, and Dan Greenberg. Meeting Dan was a particular pleasure. He is an outstanding automotive photographer, as many of us fellow PBase members know. His awesome body of work can be viewed at http://www.pbase.com/dlgphoto . Don't miss his exquisite gallery on the 2011 Santa Fe Concorso, at http://www.pbase.com/dlgphoto/santafeconcorso2011 .

Most title and caption information here came from cards displayed with the cars. I plan to add background details about some of them before the end of 2011. Those could be seen when the photos are enlarged and viewed individually. For more information on this New Mexico car show, visit its Web site at http://santafeconcorso.com .

I used a Nikon D300 with an 18-200mm Nikkor VR zoom lens to shoot the photos in this gallery. Note that the images and other content here are protected by copyright laws. All rights are reserved. Unauthorized use, copying, printing or direct linking is prohibited.
