On tonight’s WGN News at Five, we’re giving you a preview of this weekend’s Concours d’Elegance in Barrington. We went to talk with David Cooper, co-chair of the event and owner of the classic car restoration shop Cooper Technica. He offered up his place to show off a few of the 140 cars that will be on display at the event this Sunday. Collectors from all over the country will be bringing their vintage autos to the Makray Memorial Country Club in hopes of winning top prize. Spectators can come out to see these extremely rare, and valuable, cars in person.

My video feature will be posted here after it airs. You can see some of the photos I snapped of the cars today on my Facebook page. Here’s more information about the show this Sunday….

Barrington Concours d’Elegance | Makray Memorial Golf Club, 1010 S Northwest Hwy | Sunday 11am-4pm | Tickets $25 online, $30 at the door | 847-381-4291 |
