Moon Car Club at 50th Annual Easter Concours d’Elegance

Our FIRST club public display of owner’s cars was at the Horseless Carriage Club of Missouri’s annual Easter Concours d’Elegance. The event was on Sunday, April 24th, 2011 in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri. We had 2 Moons and 1 Diana on Special Display in the front row of the showing thanks to the invite from the HCCM.
It rained throughout the night before and the early morning skies were cloudy and threatening rain at any moment but we got our display up by 8 a.m. Finally, after thousands of local car enthusiasts looked at our cars, took pictures and talked with us about the cars and the club, the skies opened up with a steading rain about 1 p.m. and we had to start to put the cars away.
Wayne Nolan had his 1923 6-40 Touring on display and was awarded the Sponsors Choice Award from AAA of Missouri. Jim Schloeman brought his 1928 Diana Palm Beach Special Roadster and was awarded First Place in Class 01 (up to 1931 Historic Auto) and I had my 1925 Series A Roadster out for the first time (I still owe everyone the final story on getting this Moon ready to drive). Everyone loved the cars and seeing my “Barn Find” roadster. Finally, on behalf of the Moon Car Club, I accepted trophy from the HCCM for its Special Club Display of our cars.
Other club members in attendance were Terry McBee, Gerry Perschbacker, Ralph Atkinson, Jim Schild, Marty Luepker Sr. and Marty Luepker Jr. It was a great event and we thank the HCCM for inviting our club to display the cars and we thank all Moon Car Club members for their support for the event.
