The Selection Committee has convened and determined those special vehicles who will be invited to participate in the inaugural

Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance. 

 ​Thank you for your interest and support!

Anyone can submit a vehicle for consideration!

By definition, a Concours d'Elegance is by invitation only.  The vehicle cut-off year for the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance is 1978, meaning the vehicle must be 1978 and older to be considered.  The 2019 theme is  "100 YEARS OF AUTOMOTIVE EXCELLENCE" and President Woodrow Wilson's 1919 Pierce Arrow Limousine is the featured car we will have on display.

Several factors are taken into consideration for accepting a vehicle for the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance.  

* 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.

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.
