POSTED BY Nigel Andretti ON 03 August 2016

RALLY cars and competition Ford GTs were among the featured classes at this year’s prestigious Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth Michigan.

The Michigan show is one of the premier events of its kind in North America along with the shows in Pebble Beach, Greenwich, CT and Amelia Island.

For 38 years it has regularly attracted some of the greatest vintage cars on the continent and from around the world.

The rally car group this year consisted of 11 cars of varying vintage of which six were brought to St. John’s by John Campion of Jacksonville, Florida.

Campion is one of the top collectors of rally cars and he has a particular passion for Lancia. Main pic shows his 1975 Stratos. Four of the six cars brought to the show by Campion were Lancias, with a fifth (a Delta Integrale) left behind when its gearbox seized while being loaded on the truck.
