Best in Class Award Winners:

For all who attended the Inaugural Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance, we don't have to tell you that the overwhelming response to the 3 day event in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park was not just successful, but heart warming, joyful, and in general a huge success! Finally the Tampa Bay area has a taste of what it has been missing on the classic car circuit, a true Concours d'Elegance!

And thanks to the Participants, Sponsors, Vendors, and Attendees, we are able to present a check for $20,000 to the Shriners Hospital for Children, Tampa, Wheelchair Department.
