The 8th annual St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance was held at the Hyatt in Cambridge today. Classic and antique cars, boats, and even an airplane engine drew crowds on the green. The event included a fashion show and fundraising dinner for the Mid-Shore Community Foundation. Classic pre-war vehicles, antique wooden boats and 50s sports cars lined up beside the September bay grasses on the Choptank River on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
Local classic car fans will be glad to know that a new motor museum is in the works for St. Michaels. Bev Pratt and Cathy Stinchcomb of the Classic Motor Museum of St. Michaels shared plans for the new St. Michaels museum, which will feature classic vehicles and motorcycles. The museum will be on Marengo St. adjacent to the Old Mill, and will feature a restored Pinckett House, the historic home recently moved from Cherry St. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
