Art of the Car Concours - 2011 - Part II

This is the second post covering the Art of the Car Concours show sponsored by the Kansas City Art Institute and held on the grounds of the Institute. The first post is the one immediately before this one (Older Post). If you haven't seen it yet, go there first and then come back to this post to see the rest of the cars. This beauty is a 1937 Rolls Royce.

A Ferrari Lusso. I don't know the year.

Chevrolet Corvette

1932 Studebaker Special Racer.

1936 Stout Scarab...another one I have never heard of before.

1948 Daimler Green Goddess

How about a motorized bike....they have it all at the show.

I sure wish that I could tell you what this one is but there is no sign.

1932 Packard

I know it is a Jaguar XKE but I don't know the year.

What a beautiful car!

1927 Rolls Royce

My parents had a car similar to this one when I was growing up....man, that really dates me or my parents drove a really old car or maybe a little of both. A 1950 Dodge Wayfairer Coupe.

The front end of the Cobra shown earlier in the blog.

I love this car but I don't know what it is unfortunately.

1939 Studebaker

1947 Bentley

I think the sign says this is a 1921 Daniels.

1946 Chrysler Town & Country....one of the prettiest cars at the show.

An overview of the KC Art Institute grounds and the cars.

1935 Bentley Saloon

1903 Oldsmobile

Another Jaguar XKE Roadster.

Eating at the drive-in.....nothing could be better in the summer.

1930 Rolls Royce Phantom

1931 Cord

I believe this is a 1959 Corvette.

1929 Duesenberg

No info on this one.

1931 Ford Roadster

1940 Ford

Don't forget to view Part I of the posts. The next Art of the Car show will be on Sunday, June 24, 2012 at the Kansas City Art Institute.


  1. The car you had not idea what it was, looks like a Dusenberg Model "SJ" supercharged phaeton. Dusenberg made the chassis and the radiator shell along with the grille and all the rest was custom bodied by companies like Murphy. While Packard, Chrysler, Cadillac and Lincoln were wonderful cars the Dusenberg topped the all by a very large margin being a mix of the finest engineering of the time, the finest hand built construction along with design and luxury beyond all reason.

  2. Thanks for the update. At the next show, I will photo the information card for each car before I do the car so I won't be guessing after I get home.
