We were thrilled to attend and participate in the execution of the Arizona Concours d’Elegance over the weekend. The event showcased a remarkable display of classic automobiles. Two exceptional Italian sports cars were recognized for their excellence at the show. The pre-WWII award went to a stunning 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Long Wheelbase, while the post-war category was won by a mesmerizing 1967 Lamborghini Miura. This year, our involvement was elevated as Lisa joined the d’Elegance planning committee, adding to the excitement of experiencing these extraordinary pieces of automotive art, history, and engineering.
The Arizona Concours features an esteemed award given to the vehicle selected as the favorite by a panel of children from Make-A-Wish® Arizona. Make-A-Wish® Arizona is the original local chapter of a nationwide organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Additionally, Make-A-Wish® Arizona serves as a charitable partner of the Arizona Concours. The children’s choice for the prize was a vibrant pink 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 convertible. This stylish muscle car was a limited-production model originally painted in Mist Pink at the factory. During the event, one of the younger Make-A-Wish participants expressed that it reminded her of a Barbie car. Furthermore, this particular Firebird has a connection to a celebrity as it is believed to have been previously owned by Nancy Sinatra, the daughter of Frank Sinatra.
