Fabulous Fins of the Fifties:
With airplanes entering the jet age by the 1950s and the public’s obsession for speed, Detroit began to design their automobiles with an aerodynamic look. So in the 1950s and 1960s American automobiles would come to resemble a jet with its tail fins. It was doubtful that any fin would help an automobile go any faster than it’s engine could propel it. However, before the 1950s and 1960s were over, the builders in Detroit would be adding fins to almost every car. The 1948 Cadillac was the first. The 1959 Cadillac’s fin was a sleek design that was an aerodynamic work of art. Perhaps the most famous of all the Detroit tail fins is the one Chevrolet offered customers in 1957.
A unique American Brass Era icon, the Lozier was America’s first supercar. Loziers were top of the line luxury automobiles, fast and beautiful; extremely well-constructed and basically the undefeated champions of speedway racing, road racing and 24 hour contests. Aside from being incredibly well engineered and superbly built, the Lozier automobiles were also incredibly fast and reliable. When prestigious automobiles were priced around $2,000 to $3,000, the 1910 Lozier models were priced upwards of $7,000. (This is when the average American made $750 per year) The Lozier was truly the “American Rolls Royce” of its time.
The Magnificent Seven: (click for more information) Unique to the Atlanta Concours weekend, the “Magnificent Seven Competition” will be making its own debut during our Saturday’s “Drivers at the Chateau.” Judges will choose seven exceptional cars from the show field to participate in Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance within their own special class. The ‘Magnificent Seven’ is the first program of its kind offering a concours role to non-concours-ready vehicles. “It’s a unique opportunity to grow involvement for car aficionados who may not be car collectors in the usual concours-sense but still are enthusiasts that take deep pride in the vehicles they own and restore themselves,” said Keith Martin, the 2017 head judge.
“We’ll be looking for seven exceptional vehicles that stand out based on unique attributes and offer those vehicles and their owners the chance to publicly showcase their car within an authentic and highly regarded setting on the Sunday Concours show field.” Additionally, all attendees of Saturday’s Drivers at the Chateau event will have the chance to win a Sunday General Admission ticket to the Concours d’Elegance by matching their own seven choices prior to those named by the officials.
