Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance

Post by spl310 » Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:08 pm

Is anyone going? I am planning to be a class host again this year. I also plan to attend Cars and Coffee on Saturday morning before, and I may be working an auction on Friday.

Haven't confirmed yet Sid, but I may make it again. Let me know if they need help at the auction!

A couple of things to note - a restored 1600 is going to be auctioned by Motostalgia on Saturday. Japanese cars are going to be on the field on Sunday with two classes - I am scheduled to be working one. The ONLY KNOWN EXISTING Prince R380 will be shown there for the first time in the US ever. I am pumped!

Bummed I can't make the auction - I may be able to run up Saturday, but have work Friday and Sunday.

The auctions and show were fun. I saw Alex from KC again, and got to shake hands with Peter Brock. The 1600 that was auctioned by Motostalgia was pretty nice, and sold well. I didn't hear the hammer drop, but I am told it was either $14,000 or $14,500.
