Concours d'Elegance at the Hilton Head Motoring Festival

The signature event for the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival rolled into the Port Royal Golf Club on November 1 as the Concours d'Elegance took center stage, featuring a showcase of the most elegant and flawless collection of classic cars in the country. Celebrating its fourteenth year in South Carolina, the Concours honored four significant milestones at its namesake soiree including, one hundred years of BMW, seventy five years of Continental, sixty years of the Ford Thunderbird and fifty years of the Shelby Cobra. Winning the coveted title of "Best in Show" was a 1933 Chrysler Custom Imperial Phaeton, owned by Joseph and Margie Cassini III, and the People's Choice was awarded to a black 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540K, proudly owned by Tom Hill. Since it's inception, the Hilton Head Motoring Festival has become one of the fastest-growing automotive and Motorsports enthusiast weeks in the United States and is the only festival of its kind on the East Coast.
