Amelia Island Concours Dodges the Weather

Posted by on Monday, March 14, 2016 in Amelia Island, Articles, Event Recap, News

The 2016 Amelia Island Concours was the 21st Annual event, and one we’ll remember for the fantastic cars and a very close call with some severe weather. With predictions looking dire all weekend, somehow Bill Warner and his crew dodged the weather bullet and presented a fantastic display of fine classics, race cars, and many special features. Heacock Classic was onsite starting with Saturday’s Cars and Coffee event, and finishing with one of the most elegant displays of motorcars we’ll see this year. Full details will be pending, but for now, enjoy just a few sights and sounds from one of America’s premiere Concours events.

Emcee Ed Lucas did a masterful job of shortening the Awards Ceremony a bit to insure all the entrants could get their vehicles off the snowfield safely, and we congratulate all the entrants, volunteers, and winners for a job well done.
