Folks,

An important honor has been earned by our former President, Ray Hays, for his 1 hour Nationally Televised Production called "Winning Amelia" about the Amelia Island Concours event last year.  I have seen it and it is excellent.  Well deserved.  Hope he wins.  I think it is still findable on YouTube TV, Netflix, or Amazon.

Kudo's, Brother.

Congratulations Ray !!
I looked on youtube.com and could only find this 31 second commercial.

Can someone, or Ray, post a link to the full length film? I would love to watch it.

Hi all, Thank you for the kind words.  The program aired three times on NBCSN but their rights to the show extend until the end of the year, so, unfortunately, we can't distribute the show widely. 

However, we have produced a new show for the 2020 Concours that has yet to be scheduled.  I'll let you know when that happens.  Meanwhile here is a trailer for the new show:  https://vimeo.com/442043990

Thanks for the link Ray.  Would love to attend Amelia Island one of these years. 

While watching the trailer I spotted one of Steve Plunket's cars at 0:18.  I believe a number of you got to visit Steve's Cadillac collection in London last summer just prior to Dan's Meeting of the Clans II.  The car is a 1956 Buick X Century convertible, originally owned by Bill Mitchell, GM's director of design.  It was apparently at RM Restorations last spring for some work so it had probably left by the time we had our tour.  Oddly, another one of Steve's cars showed up for some work the day we had our tour. 

Ray, looking forward to watching your show.

     Yaay, Ray!     ;o)

You do do nice work, sir.

I hope I don't have to settle for your show, but reality may be that I never get there.  Either way, looking forward to your creation.

All best,
Denny

I want to thank everyone for their kind words and update you.  Saturday night, our show won the Emmy.  I am proud to lead a great team of professionals.  The best part may be that we were able to donate $40,000 to the Amelia Concours Foundation that supports Spina Bifida, Community Hospice, and Navy & Marine Corps Families. 

The 2020 show "Driving Amelia", will be shown nationally in the US on NBCSN January 5th at 10:00 pm EST (7:00 Pacific) and replayed at 1:00 am EST.  I hope both "Winning Amelia" and the new show will be shown in Europe soon.
