"One of the greatest thrills for me is being a part of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance."
Concours takes place in Amelia Island at the Ritz Carlton and is a paragon of the kind of amazing event that Florida does best. People from all over the world come—not only to experience the exclusivity of these cars, but also in hopes of placing their own personal rare car collection on display. The attendees and entries at Concours are all looking for an opportunity to see spectacular cars up close and in person and to share a common appreciation of the breath taking car designs that have developed through the decades.
Without the event here at Concours, one might not ever get a chance to see or understand the history behind the vehicles present. The event attracts globally wealthy people with taste & sensibilities that have been developed in the most exclusive cities in the world. Without a doubt, one of the highlights of Concours is the annual Fashion show put on by Sandra Alford. Sandra's knowledge is legendary and she takes a lead with out-of-the-box creativity—matching up the models and their looks to the eras and the cars chosen for the show. This year only 8 cars were pre-selected. My ride was the Lamborghini "Bella Strada" 1969. Sandra and her glam squad styles me as a throwback to Barbarella. What a blast!
