We were on site again this year for the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, which has become one of the elite automotive spectacles to attend. This year, crowds were estimated to be approximately 30,000 in number. A day that had threatened to be filled with rain was, instead, abundant with sun, providing perfect photo opportunites for the more than 320 elite classics.

 

Sir Stirling Moss was the Honoree of the first Amelia Concours in 1996, and now, two decades later had the distinction of being recognized again for his contributions to automotive history.

 

In addition to some exceptionally remarkable classics and historical race cars, we were treated to special classes, including orphan concept cars, L88 Race Corvettes, cars of the Cowboys, hot rods, and a unique gathering of many Stutz automobiles. A few of the standouts included:

 

  • 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO,
  • 1963 Pontiac Bonneville -- once owned by Roy Rogers,
  • 1932 Ford Roadster -- driven by Ricky Nelson on the Ozzie an Harriett TV show,
  • 1932 Ford Roadster -- the first hot rod to appear on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine,
  • 1954 DeSoto Adventurer II -- a Concept car, which understandably won the Advanced Styling award,
  • 1954 Corvair Corvette recreation of the GM Autorama car (fast back Corvette), and
  • Dymaxion -- a replica of a concept car designed in 1933

 

The winning Concours cars were the 1930 Cord L29 Brooks Stevens Speedster, Best in Show in the Concours d'Elegance category; and a 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Zagato Spider, Best in Show in the Concours De Sport category.
