    New Canaan is also past its prime. Miller Motorcars and Collectors Car Garage kept that event thriving with their clientele when they were more involved.

    I was at New Canaan on Sunday, and yes the turnout of Italian cars namely Ferrari was rather light, I think the weather played in a little as well as it was really windy which made it rather cold, there were some interesting race history Shelbys....the requisite big turnout of 911s...and a mix of other interesting things...

    Tony, couldn't agree more. I hadn't been for a few years, it'll be a few more, before I return! Good seeing you!!

    Hopefully the weather's good, there's more vintage machinery and no loud "industry" music.

    I'd rather have a root canal than subject myself to the element at this event. 90% of them are lucky they even know where the fuel filler is on their car.

    Unfortunately...You Right..
    What was once almost a very relative show...is now just a dog and pony show of ultra rich elite owners of ultra restored over restored collectables.
    It is now judged by ultra kiss assss judges who have no idea what a hose clamp looks like when in a tool box...real shame , the concours portion of the title should be changed to...The politics and cash of showing cars in manhasset show.

    I won Best Ferrari in show 2014..They invited me back with this car for their celebration of past show winners.
    It seems they need entries now as the mainstay of entrants gave up.
    Unfortunately I sold that car at peak of market.

    I may go just to see old friends....and the cars too!!

    I'll wave from the LIE on my way to CT to meet a couple Boxer buddies for a drive. This show has died a painful, slow death and now needs a burial.

    I've heard the same thing from other past winners - invited back and probably won't go. Should be a good day to shop there with plenty of parking up front.

    That's funny.. I stopped in early this morning and there was a series 1 E-type with the bonnet open and some guy walks up to it, looks at the motor and says..."wow a jaguar v12" :p

    It was absolutely packed today. I left at 1 and it took me 20 minutes just to get out of the parking lot. Biggest turnout I’ve ever seen there.

    Thank you for the video. My 2nd time going to this event. I found it appalling how some people would rev their engines for no reason. There was this LF owner revving the engine non stop. I was seriously hoping the engine would fall off his rice cooker.

    Not sure why anyone would bash this show. I think the quality of the cars this year was better than it has been in years. All spots in front taken. Not to mention the rear lot. I think this was my 10th show I attended and have never seen it so packed. Yes my 308 was being judged and I didn't get the Tiffany plate, but all good, I will try again next year. Three out of five Ferrari supercars on display. Also not one, but three Ferrari 275 GTBs including an un-restored four cam. Best of show was a gorgeous 1927 Mercedes. A blissful day indeed.
