20th Amelia Island Concours
« on: February 17, 2015, 21:28:32 »
If any of you will be attending the Amelia this year, March 13 to 15, please say hello if you see me.  I'll be there all three days with my camera crews.  This year's Cars & Coffee event on Saturday morning the 14th promises to be a real hoot and it's free of charge.  There will be more than 250 cars from around the region that you won't normally see at a Concours.  The cars are all screened so they are fine examples but you'll see everything from bucket Ts to Ferrari 458s, from vintage Alphas to Z-cars and there is a specially selected sampling of 30 Mercedes SLs.  Then, the Concours on Sunday is always an exceptional event.  Sir Stirling Moss will be on the show field with his first race car, and the original Mille Miglia #722 300 SL, and some other Silver Arrows.  Should be fun.

I will be there since my Pagoda was chosen by the MBCA to be in the group of 40 Sl's displayed Sat. Morning at the Cars and Coffee event. If you are there, please come by and say hello. Mine will be the '69 dark maroon (460). Hope to see you there.

Hi Barry,
I'll have a camera crew out there early.  I'll tell 'em to look for you.  We all have to be back in the Ball Room for The Car Guys of Television seminar at 10:30.  I should be able to get out there before you leave.
