The inaugural Concours d’Elegance at Copshaholm takes place Saturday August 11 in South Bend, Indiana.

The new event calls itself “the premier celebration of automotive design and styling in Northern Indiana” and is hosted by the Studebaker National Museum. It has been organized in place of the concours formerly held in St. Joseph, Michigan.

The location is the Copshaholm House Museum situated on the grounds of the Copshaholm Estate. The stately mansion, which sits adjacent to the Studebaker museum, is also known as the John D. Oliver House, home of the 19th Century industrialist and his family.  The 38-room Romanesque Queen Anne house is surrounded by 2.5 acres of landscaped Italianate gardens.

About 80 vehicles will be displayed and judged during the Saturday concours. The event also will feature special vintage vehicles from many international marques.

Vehicle classes include Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg, Packard, Studebaker Hawks, European Performance Cars, Post-War American Convertibles, Hoosier “Indiana-Built” cars, Microcars, One-of-a-Kind and Unrestored Barn-finds.

Aside from the vehicle displays, judging and awards ceremonies, there will be special attractions held in the Studebaker Styling Studio on the museum’s second floor.
