Anyone can submit a vehicle for consideration.
The Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance is by invitation only. The Car Selection Committee invites those vehicles that they feel best exemplify the annual theme and class structure. Several factors are taken into consideration for accepting a vehicle for the Gasparilla Concours. The following information and guidelines should help clarify the consideration given to each vehicle.
Criteria for submitting a vehicle:
The participants are selected by a qualifying committee comprised of several experts in the field of vintage & classic vehicles, designated to evaluate the historical importance of the vehicle, the quality of the condition, the original nature of the vehicle, the nature of the restoration as original, and the overall rare qualities of the vehicle that appeal most to the spectators of the event.
Vehicles newer than 1974 are generally not considered. Each year special consideration is given to vehicles of a "featured class." Special consideration is also given to those vehicles associated with the career of the Honoree. Our Honoree for 2019 is yet to be announced. In the area of race cars, the Car Selection Committee does, from time to time, invite a newer model if the vehicle adds a sense of completeness and balance to a particular class.
If you would like to have a vehicle considered, please observe the following:
Only 200 at-large vehicles will be accepted for consideration. The earlier you submit your vehicle for consideration, the better. Individuals that wait until the deadline usually find the field and/or their class has been set.
Registration is not yet open, so please check back on July 1, 2018, when the Registration link will be activated.
If you would like to be added to the list in advance of the registration, feel free to send us an email, and we will get back to you when registration opens.
