Amelia Island Movie

Since its last two editions, Justin Lapriore has been making a short film summary of the Amelia Island Contest of Elegance, held in Florida. In my opinion, last year It wasn't a big deal, even though it showed the biggest Ferrari 250 GTO's trailer I've ever seen; but this one is worth it. Without being impressive, it can be seen well, while it shows us Ford GT40's and Porsche 911's galore (on the occasion of their respective anniversaries), Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Duesenbergs or Chevrolet Corvette's. There is also the occasional motorcycle, although in a testimonial way.

It is the type of "material" that for almost twenty years can be found in the probably is, along with the Pebble Beach (California) pageant, the best contest of elegance in the United States. It is celebrated the second weekends of March and, according to its organizers, it is a non-profit event with an important social vocation, since it allocates part of the proceeds to various charitable organizations. Regarding its program, although the main activity is to gather and "judge" 300 of the best cars in history, it also hosts talks and seminars, auctions, automotive and vintage fashion.

Of course, if you live nearby or are lucky enough to travel to Florida on the designated dates, it is something not to be missed. How much will admission to one of the world's best vintage vehicle outdoor exhibitions be worth? On Monday I will ask without fail.

Finally, a little note with a national flavor: The winner of this year's edition in the sports car and grand tourer class from 1958 to 1962 was a Pegaso Z-103 saloon bodied by Touring (Photo:
