The 7th Annual Boca Raton Concours D’ Elegance

By Harvey Schwartz Under blue skies with temperatures in the high 70s, and taking place on the newly renovated and expanded show field at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, classic automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world experienced an automotive showcase of more than 200 of the finest collector automobiles and motorcycles from around the country. This year the Concours celebrated 50 years of Lamborghini and highlighted Rolls-Royce and Bentley as featured marques. An expert panel of renowned judges including Grand Marshal Keith Martin, Chief Judge Dr. Paul Sable, and Honorary Judges Carl Bomstead, David Schultz and Mark Gessler, selected the finest vintage, antique, classic and exotic vehicles based on period, presentation, and overall style, with an awards presentation to the winning entries. Once the show started, attendees were also able to cruise through Vendor Row featuring vendor tents offering hats, commemorative Concours d’ Elegance programs, posters and pins from previous shows and this year. Also new this year is an Automotive Art Show featuring some of the country’s top automotive artists in an exclusive tent to view and purchase one-of-a-kind paintings, sculpture, and prints. Attendees also enjoyed a selection of gourmet food, wine and cocktails from more than 30 of south Florida’s finest restaurants at the Concours D’ Gourmet Pavilions. It was a great memorable day for all in attendance.
