What does it take to win at a Concours d’Elegance? Is it as simple as showing up with a clean car, or is there secret black art to securing a trophy?

To find out, we ask concours judges what they look for on the show field so you can win best in class at your next concours.

This video was very informative, and I appreciate the effort to educate us neofytes, as to how we should approach a Concours event. Firstly, I totally enjoy the competition- and the participants, whoever they are. My experience is sometimes you are in the wrong class for your car. I'd love to know who decides- I never will. Should the top be up- or down. No one ever will give you a straight answer. Just give it your best, and have a good time.

Glad you liked the video, I know I learned quite a bit too. I hear you on the convertible, I'd probably spend hours looking at the car with the top up and the top down.

In the end, I think you have the right frame of mind: "Just give it your best, and have a good time." I think if you stick with that, the judges will take note.
