There are A LOT of special events and festivals on Hilton Head Island, but this one takes the cake.  Of course, it’s the…

Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance

The sumptuous and beautifully landscaped backdrop of the Port Royal Golf Club is the perfect setting for what is called one of the “Most Innovative Motoring Festivals in the World.”  Bringing together collectors, enthusiasts, and just folks who want to say “OOOOOhhh!”, this event attracts automobile aficionados from around the country.

Meaning literally a “competition of elegance”, these impressive events are held all over world.  And these cars are serious:  a Concours-quality vehicle is often restored and/or upgraded to literally surpass factory-perfect “mint” condition.  These are truly unique and beautiful machines, not intended to even be driven much and rarely seen outside private collections.  So how swell to walk about in such a lovely setting, admiring these fine specimens!
