1934 DeSoto Airflow Coupe Wins Best of Show at 2021 Des Moines Concours, Complete List of Winners

The Des Moines Concours d’Elegance to benefit Children’s Cancer Connection awarded Best of Show to a 1934 DeSoto Airflow Coupe on Sunday, September 12, 2021. The car led a field of more than 130 vehicles that included a 1939 Jaguar SS100, an ultra-rare 1953 Maverick Sportster and Iowa State University’s Eliana Solar Car.

The DeSoto Airflow is owned by Fred and Renee Mehr of Cold Spring, Minnesota. The owners recently completed the restoration of this revolutionary car, which owes its aerodynamic grille and sloped roofline to input from Orville Wright and wind tunnel testing. The split windshield allowed for better air flow for both driver and passenger and the rear passenger seats were placed between the axles for a smoother ride.

A full list of winners can be found below.

The Des Moines Concours benefits Children’s Cancer Connection, which connects families facing childhood cancer by providing programs for education, recreation and support. Awards at this year’s Concours were presented by kids involved in Children’s Cancer Connection. In the last six years, the Des Moines Concours has provided more than $100,000 to the organization.

About Des Moines Concours and Children’s Cancer Connection

The Des Moines Concours™ is a premier automotive exhibition held at the internationally recognized John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park in downtown Des Moines. The Concours presents an invitation-only exhibition of more than 160 vintage and classic motor vehicles, selected to celebrate the fine art, design evolution and amazing innovations of motor vehicles through the years, as well as the talented designers and engineers who created them. The event is free to the public.

Proceeds from the Des Moines Concours d’Elegance benefit Children’s Cancer Connection that connects families facing childhood cancer by providing programs for education, recreation and support.

An Extraordinary Auto Exhibition. From Every Era. For Every Age.

The Des Moines Concours d’Elegance to benefit Children’s Cancer Connection is an auto exhibition like no other in the area. All cars being exhibited are in the same, if not better, condition as when they left the factory. The best examples, most from within Iowa, are brought together for the public to not only enjoy their aesthetics, but also learn of their historical and technical significance. The automobiles on display come from every era starting from the early 1900s, through the design, engineering and social changes of the decades, up to the present. This year’s Featured Classes will be the 60th anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvair, and the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type. We are also featuring Ford and Mercury vehicles with the famous Flathead V8 engine.

One of the earliest cars scheduled to appear is a 1910 Sears Model K. In fact, this car could be ordered from the Sears catalog, delivered to the local train station, and assembled by the owner to drive home.

Early Ford examples include a couple from 1932. These later became popular with hot rodders in 1950s, and were dubbed “Deuces”. The Beach Boys’ classic “Little Deuce Coupe” is a musical tour of one such car.

From the 1960s, two contrast cars are highlighted. The Jaguar E-Type was called “the most beautiful care ever made” by Enzo Ferrari. That’s high praise from the head of one the most iconic makers of cars. Chevrolet’s Corvair (a combination of the names “Corvette” and “Bel Air”) was a rear-engine compact car that sold over 1.8 million units in the 1960s. Ralph Nader’s book “Unsafe At Any Speed” leveled dubious claims against the rear-engine Corvairs, as well as much of the automotive industry.

When the Concours wraps up at 4 p.m., the popular “Roar at Four” gives attendees the rare chance to see and hear these beautiful cars as they take off from the show. It’s a great time to get your cell phone and record your favorite supercar start up and roll out.

Awards are given to the top three cars from each class of automobile. The judging of the cars focuses on the presentation of and the story behind the cars more than technical merit.

Free To The Public

The 2021 Des Moines Concours will be held on Sunday, September 12, 2021 around the Pappajohn Sculpture Park in downtown Des Moines from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The show is free to the public to attend and provides a great family environment. Food trucks and other vendors will be available during the show.

Donations can be made at https://www.desmoinesconcours.com/donate/.

Saturday Driving Tour

On Saturday, September 11, 2021, the Heartland Driving Tour will include a morning drive through Madison and Warren Counties in central Iowa. The 150+ mile route, known by one car club as “Mad Warren”, ambles through rolling hills of woods and farmland, past towns and parks.

The cost for the 2021 Heartland Driving Tour is $35 per person. Additional donations to the Iowa Automotive Heritage Foundation are appreciated. Donations are tax deductible, with proceeds going to Children’s Cancer Connection. Register at https://desmoinesconcours.com/register/.

Des Moines Concours Postponed until 2021

The Iowa Automotive Heritage Foundation has made the difficult decision to postpone the Des Moines Concours d’Elegance until 2021. The decision was made in light of the many variables that could affect the Concours due to COVID-19. Foundation president Peter Hemken stated, “As much as we would like to hold this year’s show, there are too many things that could derail our planning and execution. We take great pride in the high-quality experiences we offer our vehicle exhibitors, in the broad selection of vehicles available for the public to view, and to the wonderful support provided by our sponsors, partners, and the community. We felt it most prudent to postpone the Des Moines Concours until next year to mitigate any risk to the health and well-being of the public and to avoid any compromise to the quality of our show.”

The Des Moines Concours wishes to thank the many volunteer members that have continued to prepare for the show, and to the great response from the collector community.

The Des Moines Concours has been held on the weekend following Labor Day for more than 20 years. A formal announcement of the 2021 event date will be made later this year.

Inventive Iowan Created First 4-Wheel Drive

At the 2020 Des Moines Concours, we’re honoring the Iowa roots of 4-wheel drive. Our 4×4 and 4-Wheel Drive Class pays tribute to the foundational work of Jesse Livingood in creating a 4-wheel drive attachment for a Ford automobile in 1914.

At the time, Iowa’s road system covered a good portion of the state. Roads, particularly in rural Iowa, were little more than graded dirt. Iowa’s “gravel bees” in 1916 and 1917 saw the first concerted efforts by communities to make huge improvements of these roads.

Livingood lived in New Virginia, Iowa and ran his repair shop out of an empty corn crib on the family farm. He tinkered as he sought to improve traction, reduce wear, and lower the running costs of driving on Iowa’s roads and around the farm. This led him to develop a bolt-on 4-wheel drive system that he fitted to a Ford Model T. The system could be mounted to any Ford chassis in three to four hours, and would provide braking on all corners and sure footing in mud, sand, and snow or any other inclement weather Iowa could muster.

Livingood is credited for many more inventions including the “pulley and ball” thrust bearing, the differential transmission, the speed governor, two- and four-cylinder steam engines, and the four-wheel brake system. Sadly, due to errors at the U.S. Patent Office, Livingood did not profit from his inventions and lived a modest life.

The Des Moines Concours is looking for 4X4 and 4-wheel drive vehicles that help tell the story of this Iowa development and its effects on vehicles. Iowa has a rich automotive history and our Class Chair Gabe Bosma will be looking for the finest examples of 4X4 and 4-wheel drive vehicles the Midwest and U.S. have to offer. See our Application to Exhibit at https://exhibit.desmoinesconcours.com.

COVID-19 and Planning for the Des Moines Concours

The Des Moines Concours team continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, both in Iowa and nationwide. Given the current projected curve of the coronavirus, we believe the pandemic will sufficiently subside and the Concours will go forward as scheduled September 12 and 13. Our team continues to recruit the very best examples of vehicles for all classes, enlist sponsors, and execute all the tasks that make this a signature event for the state of Iowa and the Midwest. We will continue to keep our exhibitors, sponsors, and the public apprised of the Concours status in the coming months through email, our website at www.desmoinesconcours.com and Facebook at www.facebook.com/desmoinesconcours. To contact the Concours, send an email to info@desmoinesconcours.com.
