Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2017

Pebble Beach 1909 Austin

Our 1909 Austin was among the chosen for the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.  We proudly accepted and displayed her on the famed 18th fairway on August 20th.  She was the largest vehicle in our circle of 10 with a 140″ inch wheelbase and was a crowd favorite.  We were please to meet so many new friends and to catch up with old ones.  Even though the Austin did not win an award, we left with smiles on our faces and as the Hollywood saying goes, “It was an honor being nominated!”  Click here to check out more photos on our Facebook page!

Concours d’Elegance of America 2017

We spent the weekend on the beautiful grounds of the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI for the Concours d’Elegance of America.  Pictured here is our 1925 Renault, just one of the three vehicles we showed.  All three are back in their spots at the museum so come on out and see them for yourself!

And the Winner is….

Stahls Auto Museum!!!!  We won Best Lunch City for the 2017 Great Race!  Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this event run so smooth!  We had such a great time meeting all the racers and seeing the thousands of spectators line the streets to welcome the cars.  For those of you that didn’t make it inside the museum, remember we are open every Tuesday from 1:00-4:00 and the first Saturday of the month from 11:00-4:00!

Mary and Ted Stahl were also awarded the Spirit of the Event award for their constant support of the race and for offering up their race vehicle so that two of our own racers whose car broke down the day before the race, could compete in their first Great Race.  Of course, their actions did not surprise any of us that know them.  Ted’s own words that we hear from him constantly are “Be Kind”, and he and Mary are great examples of that statement.

Trevor Stahl and Josh Hull came in 5th in the Expert Division and 7th Overall!  Stop in to see the beautiful trophies on display in the Music Room!
