Autoweek’s Thoughts on “Undiscovered Classics” at Major Concours
By Graham Kozak: September 2, 2015

Instead of bidding on (or buying) cars that come with a concours invitations attached, Geoff Hacker and Rick D’Louhy are finding intriguing, long-forgotten (and relatively affordable) cars and building cases for their historical significance. Time and again, their enthusiasm has opened doors to some of the country’s top concours.

If the concours scene is going to survive in the coming years, it’s going to have to embrace the “Undiscovered Classics” and emerging trends. So go forth and seek the cars you find intriguing, whether or not they’re worth boatloads of money, and you too may find yourself cruising onto the concours green.

If you do end up with something special, Hacker and D’Louhy’s model is one that you’d do well to emulate. Unlike the typical, secretive owners, they’re nothing but transparent about what they do, which lets guys like me share every step of the previously mysterious process with all of you.

Their objective is to make the whole process engaging and informative and maybe even fun — not something you usually say about a stranger’s car restoration.  They would have succeeded even if they hadn’t let me hop behind the wheel the morning of the concours. Not that I was about to stop them.
