Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance


Over the years, the show's Chairman and Directors have assembled one of the most knowledgeable judging teams found anywhere in the automotive world. These individuals come from all parts of the automotive spectrum and their expertise is unparalleled. The make-up of our judging team varies from year to year depending on the show's annual theme and the featured marque. Each Judge has a burning passion for the car collector hobby and is dedicated to its continued growth and success. We are very fortunate and proud each spring to have them walk Amelia's "field of dreams."
