Anyone can submit a vehicle for consideration!
By definition, a Concours d'Elegance is by invitation only. The vehicle cut-off year is 1978, meaning the vehicle must be 1978 and older to be considered. The Concours Selection Committee invites those vehicles that they feel best exemplify the annual theme and class structure. The 2019 theme is "100 YEARS OF AUTOMOTIVE EXCELLENCE".
A specific class will be designated for 1919 Vehicles.
Several factors are taken into consideration for accepting a vehicle for the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance.
The following should help clarify the consideration given to each vehicle:
* the original nature of the vehicle
* the quality and condition of the car
* the historical importance of the vehicle
* the nature of the restoration as original
* the overall rare qualities of the vehicle
* the "wow factor" that appeals most to the spectators of the event.
The participants are selected by a qualifying committee comprised of several experts in the field of vintage & classic vehicles.
Each year special consideration is given to vehicles of a "featured class." This years featured class is the "100 Years of Automotive Excellence" so if you have a 1919 vehicle of any sort, even if it is not in perfect condition, please let us know about it! Those vehicles who are not selected to participate in the Saturday Concours d'Elegance are invited to participate in the Friday Night "Cars in the Park" Cocktail Party and FUNraiser Charity Auction.
