This past weekend of February 21st-23rd ushered in one of the year's most celebrated automotive events in Palm Beach County: The 8th Annual Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance! Friday night kicked off the weekend at Boca Aviation for the duPont Registry Live hangar party. It was really exceptional: try to imagine paging through the duPont Registry magazine, and having it all come to life right in front of you! Exotic cars, planes, helicopters, yachts, jewelry and other luxury products, were all featured a midst the backdrop of the "swankiest" party that you've been to- with celebrities wandering around with other jet-setters for good measure. We even got a chance to chat with Paul Teutul Sr. from Orange County Choppers and American Chopper fame. Saturday featured seminars that educated people about automotive marques like Packard and Mercedes. The Gala dinner topped off Saturday night at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, and featured Lifetime Automotive Achievement Winner Mike Maroone, as well as the Big Wheel contributors to the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County.

Of course, the big day was Sunday, the 23rd, where the field was packed with rare and exceptional automotive masterpieces. It was unseasonably warm, but the day was sunny and beautiful. We featured everything from a 1952 Muntz Jet, to a 1910 Blitzen Benz... Our Media Tent drew lots of attention, as our full crew greeted visitors, represented our brand by handing out our literature, as well as our Media Tent Sponsors' literature to the crowds. It was nice to have Tom duPont of the duPont Registry stop by to chat with us, as well as our friend, Wayne Carini, the host of Velocity Channel's "Chasing Classic Cars", and this year's Grand Marshall of the event. Brian Quail, the President and CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County also stopped by, and we did a quick interview with him, as well.

For those of you who have never been to a real Concours event, we strongly suggest that you add it to your "bucket list"... We are pleased that we were received so well, and that we are already invited back for next year! We had a great time bringing you this landmark event, and we hope you enjoy the show!e.
