In addition to all of the regular classes, this year the concours will feature the cars of Cadillac and the E-Type Jaguar. Dayton is also unique in that they also feature some cars, such as hot rods and street rods that are overlooked by other such events. In addition there is always a large model display which is well worth seeing.

Every year the Dayton Concours d’Elegance brings out some of the most spectacular cars you will ever have the chance to see so it is well worth your time to drive a little north to attend this remarkable event.
