Concours to celebrate "The Cars of Orville Wright"

Held each September, Dayton History's Concours d’Elegance is Dayton’s premier antique and classic automobile and motorcycle show. This year's event at Carillon Historical Park is on Sunday, September 17, from 10 AM to 4 PM. In addition to the featured marques, there will be an aviation connection, with reference to Orville Wright. As described by Dayton History: "For the first time ever, Concours will celebrate the Cars of Orville Wright, displaying a variety of automobiles similar to those owned by the world's first pilot. Known as a sharp dresser, a fanatic for keeping his shoes shined, Orville was also known as an early automobile enthusiast with a heavy right foot. With license plates OW-1, Oakwood police officers were instructed to allow the famed pilot to ignore the speed limit (which he did regularly) as he drove to and from his Hawthorn Hill home".
