Amelia Island 3/8-3/10



March 08, 2013

The 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance saw a variety of styles, designs and honorary marques on display for the thousands gathered to bask in the automotive splendor and sun of Amelia Island, Florida. Among those featured were Corvette Stingrays, Lamborghinis, Porsche 911s and the Ford GT40, all of which were celebrating their fiftieth anniversaries. In addition to these storied marques, cars raced by Sam Posey and those featuring engines designed by the great Harry Miller sat side by side with the less-than-prestigious, but still noteworthy "What Were They Thinking?" category. All in all, an eclectic mix of great automobiles graced the fairways of the Amelia Island Ritz Carlton.

The HVA and FIVA each presented an award at the event. The THIS CAR MATTERS Award, presented by Mark Gessler, president of the Historic Vehicle Association, went to Jim Glickenhaus of New York, New York for his 1967 Ford GT40 Mk IV. The FIVA Trophy, presented by Horst Brüning, president of FIVA, went to Jim and Cindy Griggs for their 1907 Holsman High-Wheeler.
