One Great Car Show

Is anyone from here going to Amelia Island this year for the Concours de' Elegnace car show. Fantastic !Everything from Abarth to Zagato. Every car is pristine. Its a rare opportunity to see this many quality cars in one location. I went last year for the first time and I will not miss another year. Hope to see some of you there!

Any chance you will make the show? Dinner will be on me!

Sounds good. Sorry you cant make it! The only Jag I have owned was an 88 Jag Vaden Plas. I loved the car but it is long gone. What kind of Jag were you showing?

My favorite car last year at the show was a Pierce Arrow. That thing was perfect.

Sweet If you are ever in Cincy we have a great British Car Show in the summer. A friend of mine has a Healy 3000 that he shows. We have a blast!

I am looking for a Sunbeam Tiger project car .(Yeah I know $$$$)If you hear of any keep me in mind. I finally got away from MGA's after 20 years

Good luck with your Jag

They just don't design cars today with the class and elegance that they did 30-60 years ago. I miss those cars!

Oh, very nice, very nice.

I can't go to it, but I really hope if someone can take some pics.
