Nearly 300 vehicles filled Milwaukee’s Veterans Park on Aug. 23, 2014 for the Milwaukee Masterpiece’s “Club Day” event. Among those assembled were two impressive collections. The first included Volvo Sports America members gathered for their national meet. Members of the Wisconsin Jaguars Ltd. auto club also assembled for their annual concours d’elegance.
Tom Schultz—a noted author, auto historian and former press officer for the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA)—hosted the award ceremony. People’s Choice honors went to a 1971 Jaguar XKE owned by John Schindler of Brecksville, Ohio. Sponsor’s Choice was presented by the Kohler Company to the 1937 Packard of Verne Holoubek, of Hartford, Wis. Best of Show went to a 1960 JaguarMark IX owned by Michael Belica of St. Charles, Ill.
The 10th annual Milwaukee Masterpiece followed Club Day on Sunday. Hundreds of pre—selected classic cars took over the field. Best of Show was awarded to the 1929 Stutz Model M Supercharged “Lancefield” Coupe owned by Richard and Irina Mitchell and The Mitchell Collection of Montgomery, Texas.
Best of Show for European cars was presented to a 1933 Delage D8S Roadster by DeVillars, owned by Jim Patterson and The Patterson Collection, of Louisville, Ky.
