The Elegance at Hershey – June 11-13, 2015
Imagine for a second: Beautiful, sunny, warm summer weather. An old, historic hotel located in the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania. And multi-million dollar antique cars. Everywhere. Cars so amazing that you tell yourself, “These are the most impressive vehicles that I’ve ever laid eyes on.”
So for the fourth year in a row, J.C. Taylor Insurance renewed our sponsorship to be a part of the Elegance at Hershey, one of the finest Concours events in the entire country. Normally located on the second Sunday every June, you’d be hard pressed to find a better collection of cars in one spot. From Rolls Royces to Bentleys to 1920s and 1930s Duesenbergs, to things you’ve heard in passing as existing, but never knew if they were really out there, it’s all there. The lineup is stunning. Some of the highlights included:
1948 Daimler DE36
1938 Alfa Romeo 6C
1938 Bugatti 57C
1964 Aston Martin
1937 Talbot Lago T 150C SS
1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III
1958 Dual Ghia
Event attendees take a few hours to check out the cars, and then are asked to vote for various categories (best overall, people’s choice, open/closed pre-war, post war, etc.) To view the full list of winners, head over to their official site.
On top of the fantastic cars there, the event’s natural backdrop isn’t too shabby either. Located on the upper level show field of the historic Hotel Hershey, you are experiencing a AAA Four Diamond rated resort that would make anyone feel like they’re on vacation. It really is top-notch, and the organizers of the event truly run a great show. The three day long event starts on a Thursday and runs through the actual Elegance event, ending Sunday. They also offer organized hill climbs (“Grand Ascents”) during the previous two days that showcase an entirely new set of racing vehicles from different eras. (Sadly, we don’t insure racing vehicles, but you already knew that!)
Naturally, this is a special event for J.C. Taylor to attend because we get to touch base with many of our existing customers. It’s not often that we attend a car show where our customers actually have their cars there to show off nearby. We look forward to being a part of this great event every June, and we especially wanted to thank everyone involved with the show for doing such a solid job of running it. See you all in 2016!
