The 2009 Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance was held Sunday, August 2nd on the grounds of Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, Michigan.
The 30th annual Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance featured more than 230 cars and motorcycles, including over 80 cars representing “The Best of Detroit,” plus Italian specialties like the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, Fiat 8V Supersonic, Dino 206 Competizione and Ferrari P3/4. In addition, the Mode du Concours presented ‘Sirens of Chrome’ models dressed in period auto show costumes.
“Best of Show” honors were bestowed upon a 1934 Packard V-12 Sport Sedan by Dietrich (American) owned by Ray Scherr of California and a 1939 Delahaye 165 Cabriolet by Figoni et Falaschi (Foreign) from the Peter Mullin Foundation of California. Mullin’s Delahaye also won the “People’s Choice” award.
Photographer Nathan Leach-Proffer documented this year’s Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance with a superb picture gallery of the cars on and around the Meadow Brook Hall grounds. This is the first time (of what we anticipate will be many) Nathan’s work has been featured on Sports Car Digest. We hope you enjoy his photos as much as we do.

Very cool photos of Meadow Brook. Looks like a good variety of cars this year. Well done.
That vintage item in the pink dress was also nice.
The 37 Ford isn’t…. It looks like a Lincoln ?
It’s a 1941 Lincoln-Zephyr in Darin Blue!
… and two photos up from it is a 1937 Lincoln-Zephyr coupe.
We updated the photos.
I was the campus photographer for the university, when the Concours was first started and it struggled along… It is nice to see it finally made it to the status it has today…
So many of the locations where the cars are photographed bring back many memories…

Does anyone know where and when they will have the 1967 Ferrari P3/4 (Chassis 0846) shown again? Love that car. Did not know it was going to be there. Terry
the 37 and 41 Zephyr’s rule.
Ten years later, I love seeing these pictures and the memory you have preserved for all of us… and yes, the Zephyrs rule!!
