The Concours d'Elegance of Southwest Michigan will be hosting their 12th annual show August 13, 2016 on the beautiful bluff, overlooking Lake Michigan.

The Lake Bluff Concours will help celebrate automaker Nash's 100th birthday by inviting a number of company's vintage vehicles to our August 13 car show in St. Joseph. If you know someone with a nice Nash - any year between 1916 and 1957, please have them get in touch with us by year end so we can send an invitation to apply.

I have been contacted by the selection committee to assist them in getting approximately 6 Nash vehicles to cover a good selection of the 1916-1957 era.

Ken, I am hoping your will consider filling out a application to bring your beautiful “Tub” to next years invitation only show. Any other member wishing to attend with your Nash, let me know and I will have a application forwarded to you.

Concours d'Elegance of Southwest Michigan is a vintage automobile exhibition that is held annually on the bluff overlooking ...Lake Michigan in St. Joseph. Dozens of classic vehicles dating from the dawn of the automotive era up to 1981 will be on display. All are beautifully restored and several are extremely rare and unusual. The display of vehicles, including motorcycles and bicycles, is complemented by three afternoon "pass in review" events narrated by automotive authority F. Edward Lucas II, "The Voice of Amelia Island."
