​​Entrants Application





The organizers of this event receive NO COMPENSATION and are truly Volunteers! We are a 501c3 IRS recognized charitable organization.

The inaugural year's  proceeds will be donated to Shriners Hospital for Children, Tampa. 

We do it for the love of the community, great classic cars, and the charities we support !

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.

We have received multiple requests to extend the deadline due to the holidays. Please have your applications in no later than January 7, 2019. The Selection Committee will meet and the Invitations will be sent later in January.

​If you have trouble entering online, please  call 813-714-1019 and leave a message to let us know that your entry may be late.
