Florida enthusiasts are fortunate, with the mild, year-round weather ensuring an unlimited supply of car shows every weekend.  More important than quantity, however, is the opportunity to see and participate in a number of world-class events held throughout the year.  One of the best is the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, held annually during the second full weekend in March.   Displayed on the manicured greens of The Golf Club of Amelia Island and Ritz-Carlton, a huge collection of vehicles was on display admired by record crowds. Extending from Friday to Sunday, this milestone annual event is a celebration of culturally iconic vehicles, enhanced by seminars from world renown experts in their fields, manufacturer test drives, and auction opportunities where six and seven figure vehicles changed hands. Unlike the previous two years, the weather was amazing, allowing the full event schedule with Cars & Coffee on Saturday and the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday. Saturday saw an amazing collection of local vehicles while the ultimate gathering of invitation-only vehicles arrived on Sunday. Spectators were thrilled to get up close to some of the most revered automobiles ever created. Displayed on the 10th and 18th fairways, the diversity was mind-boggling, ranging from elegant, 30s-vintage Duesenbergs to concept cars that showed the early evolution of design trends like the 2-Rotor Corvette, a mid-engine concept featuring a Wankel engine. The ladies loved the automotive fashion show that paired cars and styles throughout the decades.   The show’s Foundation has a serious side, donating more than $3.45 million to Community Hospice & Palliative Care and other charities on Florida’s First Coast since its inception in 1996. If you’d like to participate in what event founder and chairman Bill Warner calls ‘a celebration of past, present, and the future of automobiles’, get the details at  HYPERLINK http://www.ameliaconcours.orgwww.ameliaconcours.org
