Welcome to the 2016 Arizona Biltmore Concours D'Elegance. This was the 3rd Annual Concours to be held at the Historic Biltmore Resort. The event took place on Sunday, January 24th 2016 and would again help to kick start the annual Collector Car auction week in the Phoenix - Scottsdale area. This years event selected Duesenberg as the Honorary Marque along with examples of Coachwork by the Italian Design House Zagato. In partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the gathering also celebrated the 100th running of the upcoming Indianapolis 500 Race with a display of Historic Indy Racing Cars. The Arizona Concours D'Elegance benefits the "Make-A-Wish" Arizona Foundation. The Foundation grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will celebrate it's 100th Running this year. The Concours event had a Special Exhibit in the Speedways Honor, showcasing various Past Indianapolis Racers along with the Coveted Borg Warner Trophy graciously on loan from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Pay no attention to the Girl next to the Trophy she in Not part of the Exhibit. She was with me, my Trophy Wife as I have been told...

             

The Old Guy standing next to the Mormon Meteor Duesenberg is Not the Owner, that's me waiting for the wife to say "Cheese", of which she didn't, before snapping the photo. Harry Yeaggy from Cincinnati, Ohio is the owner of this 1935 Duesenberg SJ Special, known as the Mormon Meteor. The car was built by Ab Jenkins, a Pioneer in Endurance Racing, with the help of Augie Duesenberg and with the blessings of E.L Cord's Auburn Automobile Company. The purpose of the build was to best Ab's previous 24- hour speed endurance record set in a Pierce Arrow. Ab Jenkins successfully set a New 24-hour Record with an average Speed of 135.47 MPH at Bonneville. In 1943 Ab purchased the car for $4800. He later sold it to the Kershaw family in 1959, who owned it until 2004 when it was sold to Harry Yeaggy. Mr Yaeggy's purchase price was almost 1000 times what Ab Jenkins paid for it in 1943. Don't bother finding your calculator, it was over $4,000,000

The Best of Show and Best Duesenberg Honors were awarded to Harry Yaeggy's 1935 Duesenberg SJ

The Gary Cooper SSJ Duesenberg was a welcome sight and as one would imagine it drew a lot of attention. The Car has a Beautiful Patina to it. Only two SSJ's were built, the other one belonged to Clark Gable. The Gable car is a Tu-Tone Red and Silver. The extra "S" in SJ indicates "Short" for the Shortened SJ Wheelbase. For the record, "SJ" is for Super-Charged J Model. The Gary Cooper car currently belongs to The REVS Institute for Automotive Technology, Naples, Florida

The 1933 Duesenberg SJ LaGrande Dual Cowl Phaeton is part of the 7750 Collection in Bozeman, Montana. It is one of only 36 Super-Charged Model J's.  The  San Francisco Academy of Art University brought the 1935 Model  SJ LaGrande Convertible Coupe. Only 3 LaGrande Convertible Coupes were built. This is the only Super-Charged version
