Concours d’Elegance of America

Tradition continues with the Concours d’Elegance of America. The Concours d’Elegance originally began in 17th century France. The aristocracy would parade their horse-drawn carriages through the parks of Paris. This event evolved into competitions between automobile manufacturers, owners, and custom coach-builders. Their vehicles were judged on the beauty of their design. After 32 years of this event being held at the Oakland University’s Meadow Brook Hall, it was moved in 2011 to the grounds of the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan. This year the event will be held on Sunday, July 26th.

The Cobra CDR830 Dash Cam

This dash cam is perfect for filming the road and giving you a front row seat (literally). This device has a full HD recording camera in 1080P resolution. It also has GPS Position Logging so it can record the exact time, location, date, and speed onto the videos. Not a fan of videos? This dash cam also takes 12 megapixel still photos. All these images can be viewed on a TV, computer screen, or on this gadget’s 2.7 inch LED screen. The G-Sensor will automatically save the data if a collision is detected. This is one really cool dash cam.  Read more here: http://headlinesandheroes.com/living/12-roadtrip-essentials/3/

The First Auto Race

Did you ever wonder how auto racing began?  The first auto race was held in France on July 22, 1894. The race began in Paris and ended in Rouen, a total of 31 miles. Pierre Giffard organized the event to publicise his newspaper and to stimulate an interest in motoring. He was the editor of Le Petit Journal. The paper announced prizes for first through fifth place, but the main prize was for the first eligible vehicle that crossed the finish line. 21 cars were qualified in the race out of the 102 people that entered. The winner made it to Rouen in 5 hours and 40 minutes.
