CINCINNATI -- Gearheads from around the country met in Ault Park on Sunday to show off their exotic and luxury cars and motorcycles for a good cause.


While the 41st Annual Concours d'Elegance  is open to the general public, the featured vehicles are more exclusive.

"This is an invitation-only show," said Fred Jones, one of the staff members responsible for picking which cars are allowed into the show. "You can't just drive up and enter it."

Some of the cars, such as a 2015 Porsche 918, cost more than $1 million -- and that's on the cheap side compared to others. Jones said there were eight vehicles in the same class one year worth about a combined $80 million.

While the cars are the main attraction, the proceeds benefit the Juvenile Arthritis programs of the Arthritis Foundation.

"All the money stays local, here, in the Cincinnati area," said Sue Willis, the event's executive director. Willis said the money raised helps support "families with one or more children with arthritis."
