    Pics from the Amelia Island Concours

    This year I had the pleasure of taking my family to Amelia Island for the concours event. I had two cars that competed, both winning best in class, which was very cool. More importantly I ran into a bunch of clients, friends, and enjoyed the with my family while looking at my favorite cars of all time: Duesenbergs. With out further ado, here are some of the pics I took.

    Dale Earnhardt's Monte Carlo Stock car (back when it was Winston Cup and the car's where different).



    One of my favorites from the show, a Tucker Torpedo. Those who don't know the story of this car and the man behind it should head to google.



    Ferrari 400 Super America



    Ferrari GT cab



    Ferrari 212 Vignale





    Type 57 Bugatti's







    1947 Rolls Royce



    A couple of Duesenbergs









    My wife and enjoying the cool (by Florida standards) morning infront of a one-off brand.



    Another Duesy



    My son infront of a 1903 Cadillac. Big pimping on 26's?



    Duesenberg Indy car



    300SL Gullwing



    This is the most beautiful bike I have ever seen, a 1937 BMW R7





    And some more Duesenbergs to finish off the show.











    And finally the amazing engine compartment of the Duesenberg SSJ Supercharged. This engine, in the 1930's produced 320 horsepower!!!! At a time when most car's made less than 40 horsepower and a HOTROD Ford V8 was less than 100 horsepower, this car trumped all. It also had a top seed over 150 miles per hour, when the average car of the time might hit 70. It was the Bugatti Veryon of it's time.



    Here is the outside of this amazing piece of art (I believe it won best in show)



    Thanks for looking
    Let's make all of the cars shiny!

    By the way here is a video on the Tucker. It definitely is an interesting story. Man, I love the films from back in the day.

    Awesome pics and cars! Thanks Todd.

    You sure are right, that BMW Bike is truly beautiful!

    I once put swirls in my paint just to see what it looked like.

    I don't always detail cars, but when I do, I prefer Meguiar's.
    Remove swirls my friends.

    Great stuff, Todd, thanks for sharing these. But you're being a bit modest here - where are the pix of the couple cars you prepped that won their respective classes?
