 Article by Nick Maltby - carsceneinternational.blogspot.co.uk

As a car enthusiast it was a privilege to be able to attend the 21st Annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. It was also very rewarding.
If I was asked to nominate just one feature that impressed or excited me most then it would be the stunning array of Pegaso cars. These cars were amongst my favourites when I was a boy in the 1950s. But they are so rare that they had almost slipped from my memory. Those memories came flooding back when I saw the display at the Concours, there were a number of models which I had never seen before. Many congratulations to those who manged to get all those cars together for this occasion. The other thing that struck me was that I had never seen so many McLarens together at the same time.

The programme started on Thursday 10th March with a RM Sotherby's sale review and a Guardians of Porsche Wine Makers dinner. There were more corporate evnts on Friday, with the momentum building for the Concours itself on Sunday 13th March. 
I was able to visit on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday local car clubs and owners were able to display their cars on the first hole of the Golf club of Amelia Island.
Here is just a small selection of pictures taken plus the amazing cars we saw entering the auction room on the eve of the 2016 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. You would have to be a real expert to understand why the cars achieved the prices they did; some seem excessive, others seem to be very good value.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
