Despite having to cancel a few events late in the week thanks to foul weather, the annual Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week presented by the Audrain Automobile Museum still saw some of the most iconic machines from automotive history descend upon Newport, Rhode Island.

Here's a few sights from the action:

We missed this. We were at the first two, 2019 and 2021. Both previous years were fantastic. I posted the following over in the "So What Is Everyone Doing This Weekend" thread in Off-Topic Discussions:

"Annie and I normally would've done Friday's event at Rough Point. I would've done a couple car-related seminars Saturday afternoon in the International Tennis Hall of Fame auditorium on Bellevue Ave. And we would've gone to the Concours d'Elegance on the grounds of the Breakers mansion today (Sunday). However, I've known for months that this was not going to be, since nephew Henry was getting married this weekend. So Friday was the rehearsal dinner in New Bedford, MA. Saturday was the wedding at their family compound on the water in South Dartmouth, MA. And today was brunch at the same place."

Theoretically, we could have blown-off brunch on Sunday and scooted over to Newport from our hotel in New Bedford, MA, but the weather was so crappy (cold, cloudy, and 40-50 mph wind gusts on the coast), we just didn't bother. We'll be there next year.

And I had a great conversation on Bellevue Ave. with Italian journalist Massimo Delbo about cars last year. He has a very interesting car collection back at home in Italy.
