Exotic Cars at Amelia Island

When you think of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance you think of older perfectly restored exotic legendary collector cars. That is the focus without question but remember the people that own these cars are also likely to drive today’s equivalent. A look around the parking lots confirms this.

Take a look at these photos of what we witnessed and drooled over.

There were all the familiar faces in all the regular spaces but the car getting the most attention was the Spyker. It is a Dutch company which has only produced 260 cars since 2000  but is doing well; they just purchased Saab from General Motors and have some great new products planned. What really makes the auto designs so unique is the strong vintage aircraft design clues.

I was blown away with the air intake vents and most of all by the exposed shifter linkage in the cockpit.

Think these cars are hot? Next up, in a few days, are some of he prototypes that were on display. These will make you wish for a Fast Forward Machine!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
