Go-To Gift Guide For Dad!
The Classic Car Dad
Concours d’Elegance takes place July 28-30 at the Inn at St. John’s, in Plymouth. For dads that love cars, this is the place to be. June 1-17, Concours is offering a Father’s Day package that includes four general admission tickets and four commemorative posters for $100. This is a $140 savings compared to buying tickets at the gate.
