St. Louis, Missouri On Sunday, May 20, 2012, the Kemp Auto Museum will feature some of the most rare automobiles in existence today. These cars represent the best of their era and are chosen on the basis of craftsmanship, design and performance.
Over the past five years, this event has grown in popularity in the St. Louis area, and is celebrated for the impressive range of its selections and their quality. Emphasis is placed on automobiles produced in the late nineteenth century and beyond, many of which have won regional and national concours awards at Pebble Beach in California and Amelia Island in Florida.
This year the featured marques include the 1925 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Riviera Town Car, the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, the 1957 Chevrolet Convertible, and the 1957 Jaguar XK1 140.
"There's a subtle theme of the fifties", says Executive Director Rodger Van Ness of this year's show field.
"Different classes and styles appeal to different people and the show committee is committed to expressing and upholding that diversity in its selections. As well as the Duesenbergs and the luxury Packards, viewers will also find Triumphs and Fords on display."
The event begins at 10a.m. on Sach's Plaza of the museum and is free to the public. Proceeds will benefit Ranken Jordan Pediatric Hospital.
