While Memorial Day may be the unofficial start to summer, it is the official start to the car show season.On the East Coast of the United States, the premier event to start off the season is the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in Greenwich, CT.
Greenwich is home to some of the wealthiest people in the nation, as well as a number of bankers and hedge fund managers that make their fortunes in New York City.
While we were unfortunately unable to attend, our friend Kamil Kaluski from Hooniverse was kind enough to share these superb images from the event.

The parking lot is the show before the show. Show goers could spend hours gawking in the parking lot at the rare cars others drove, like this Qvale Mangusta.
Aston Martin's DBS Volante simply looks sinister in black. This is also one time where it could actually be considered a common car.
A parking lot that special lets you know that the actual show will be pretty incredible. The Alfa Romeo 8C is one of the most beautiful cars in the world, so we're off to a good start.
It's amazing what you can find at these shows. Everything from plush coupes to hardcore track cars, like this Ariel Atom, are represented.
The Lotus Elite was a truly groundbreaking, and fragile, car. But there is no denying how beautiful it is.
Aston Martin built the Lagonda in the 1970s and 80s. It was famous for its unreliability and ugliness. We still think it's super cool.
British automaker Morgan is known for doing things a little differently. They use wood in the construction of cars, and in the case of this one, mount a motorcycle engine on the outside and only give it three wheels.
If the roads somehow went away during the show, this Amphicar would be the only one that could leave the grounds.
If you thought recent Saabs were weird, you never saw the old ones. They had two stroke engines that made them sound like lawnmowers.
In 1957, the first Lotus 7 rolled off the line. British company Caterham later purchased the rights to the car, and they are still being made today.
We believe this is a 1930s Rolls-Royce Phantom with a one of a kind body. The detailing is incredible.
One-off and special bodied cars were also present. In the 1950s, Chrysler went to Ghia to make a few concepts. This Dual-Ghia Convertible is one of the results.
Believe it or not, this is a Corvette. The body was made by Italian designer Pininfarina to create the Corvette Rondine. This is the only one in the world.
BMW's Z1 was one of its first two seat, modern roadsters. We love how the doors slip down into the body.
But this Ferrari 330 LMB had to be one of the stars. Only four were built and they are each valued at $7.5 million.
