The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance 2013 was held Sunday, March 10th on the 10th and 18th fairways of the Golf Club of Amelia Island adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida. The event attracted an estimated crowd of 25,000 and more than 300 vehicles on display.

Honorary Chairman Sam Posey kicked off the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance by driving onto the field in his raucous Caldwell D7 Can-Am. A selection of Posey’s racers were among the highlights of the Cars of Sam Posey class, from the lime green Dodge Challenger he raced in the 1970 Trans-Am series to the N.A.R.T Ferrari 512 Posey and Tony Adamowicz co-drove to 3rd overall at the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In addition to the race cars of Sam Posey, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance celebrated the 50th anniversaries of the Ford GT40, Porsche 911, Corvette Sting Ray and Lamborghini, the race cars of Harry Miller and the motorcycles of Ducati. The Ford GT40 class was marked by the wonderful gathering of fourteen race cars at the far end of the show field, highlighted by chassis number 1075 that won overall at Le Mans in 1968 and 1969.

The Cars of Harry Miller class assembled the largest collection of cars from the golden age of the American racing cars of the twenties and thirties. A selection of 22 Millers were on exhibit, including the supercharged Miller 91 that set a speed record at the 1928 Indianapolis 500.

Other classes at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance ranged from BMW race cars, Concept Cadillacs, What Were They Thinking, Formula Juniors, BMWs to traditional Concours classes like American Classic Open/Closed, Ferrari and European Classic Pre-War.

The Amelia Island event offers a pair of Best of Show awards, one for Concours d’Elegance and one for Concours de Sport. The 2013 Best of Show Concours d’Elegance went to the 1936 Duesenberg SJ owned by Jack and Helen Nethercutt, while the Best of Show Concours de Sport was awarded to the 1968 Ford GT40 entered the Rocky Mountain Collection.

Off the show field, attendees enjoyed seminars on the Corvette Sting Ray, Porsche 911 and Ford GT40. The Corvette seminar featured Ed Welburn, Vice President Global Design General Motors General Motors and 1963 Sting Ray designer Peter Brock, while the GT40 included fascinating tales spun by racing greats Dan Gurney, David Hobbs and Brian Redman, among others.


“The Amelia is more than just an event. It’s a celebration of the past, present and future of automobiles,” said Bill Warner, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. “We gathered the very best in classic cars, racing history and automotive superstars together for the 2013 Concours and I don’t know how we’ll repeat it in 2014. Then again, I’m sure we’ll think of something."

Now in its 27th year in Palm Springs, the auction broke a company record by achieving a near 80% sales rate; Receipts exceeded 7.4 million dollars.

RM AUCTIONS REALIZES SPECTACULAR $36.4 MILLION AT ARIZONA BILTMORE SALE

RM Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, kicked off its 2013 auction season on a strong note, realizing an impressive $36.4 million in sales* with a strong 89 percent of all lots sold at its single-day Phoenix, Arizona sale.

Held at the prestigious Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, the impressive results represent an all-time high for the international auction house in Arizona, and more significantly, a more than 42 percent increase over the Company’s 2012 sale, generated no less by a smaller, more elite offering as RM continued to focus on the top tier of the market.

"Our fourteenth foray into Arizona this year was as exciting as ever – our clients from around the world were joined by our equally international team of specialists, from California to the UK and it made for a spectacular, history-making event," says Shelby Myers, Managing Director, RM Auctions – California.

“We are very pleased with the results. We strategically limited our sale this year to a smaller, more exclusive offering than previous years, yet the sales tally for our single-day event was up on our 2012 total by more than 42 percent, a significant increase that reflects not only the exceptional quality of the automobiles presented, but also illustrates the continued strength of the market for ‘best of category’ examples. The Arizona auction week is widely regarded as a barometer for the new collector car season; the results from our Biltmore sale paint a very positive forecast for 2013 and we look forward to continuing the momentum at our upcoming sales in Georgia and Florida,” adds Myers.

QUESTION: Was Jaguar ever made by Ford motor?

• ANSWER:
Jaguar was acquired by Ford in 1989. Between Ford purchasing Jaguar in 1989 and selling it in 2008, it was not profitable for Ford.

QUESTION: When are California State Taxes applicable to my purchase?

• ANSWER:
California state taxes will be applied to any vehicle purchase that will be driven in the State of California, or if a buyer will be driving the vehicle away from our facility premises. If the vehicle is transported by an ICC approved commercial carrier out of the state, then no sales tax is applied. It would need to be registered and licensed in the state in which they reside. Sales tax does not apply for dealer purchases.

QUESTION:
What is the difference between Show and a Show/Driver level at Classic Showcase, Inc.?

• ANSWER: The main difference is the extreme, high level of attention to detail spent on the vehicle, and much more man hours. Show level is a car that typically will not be driven; it is kept in climate controlled storage and transported on a trailer to Concours events. With Show cars, we source as many original parts as possible and get the best of everything available as well as the paint, chrome, etc. Show/Driver level is catered more to the customer that is interested in showing and lightly driving their vehicle.  Our Show/Driver level is usually higher than other restoration facilities definition, and is more like what would be considered Show level.

QUESTION: I am looking to replace worn tires on a series one E type. Wheels are the standard, original 5 inch wire wheels. What do you recommend?

• ANSWER: Vredestein/Dunlop 185VR15 "Aquajet"/Pirelli 185VR15 Cinturato/Michelin 185VR15 XVS.

QUESTION: I was wondering how you determine the value of a classic car when you are trying to buy or sell...

• ANSWER:
We use "CPI" which is published by Black Book. It is an incredible, informative, and accurate price guide and reference, and we highly recommend it! It is updated quarterly to keep up with market changes.


Ten Things You Should Always Have in Your Classic Car
Tools to fix it yourself when it breaks down on the road
By Tony and Michele Hamer (former About.com Guide)

When you drive a modern car for work, long trips or around town errands, one can become accustomed to their dependability and keep only the legally required documentation in the glove box and common sense tools in the trunk like a jack, road side emergency kit, owner’s manual and spare fuses. Frankly, any other tools would seem a bit useless because today’s cars are a bit too complicated to diagnose and repair by the side of the road.

But when you head off in a car that is 25 years or older, you should include a few more things in the event of a breakdown. Even though you've checked and rechecked all the fluids, belts and running parts, many classics had question marks over reliability even when they were rolling off the production line.

So here’s our list of ten things you should carry in your older car that’s over and above the legally required documentation and common sense tools.

• Stanley Digital Power Station – Only weighing 11 pounds and sitting at 11 inches tall, the Stanley Power Station can instantly start your car or charge to your battery after long day at a car show. It also includes a 120-psi compressor with a digital inflator, emergency light, portable power and AC/DC and USB ports to charge your cell phone.

• Hand Tools – This is pretty much a no brainer for anyone who owns an older car but we would just like to suggest that you put together a tool box that contains the types of tools you would use on the parts for your car that you know how to fix or replace. Mechanic's tool kits in those nice plastic carrying cases never seem to include the simple things that get used most often on the classics like wrenches, screwdrivers, a spark plug socket or wire brush.

• Spare Parts – Taking into consideration on the mileage or amount of time that has passed since replaced, you may want to consider keeping a box of spare parts that would include a starter, alternator, fuel pump, complete distributor (extra points, condenser and rotor), floats and fan belts.

• Clean Towels – There are many reasons why this should be in the trunk. To protect you while you’re on the ground looking under the car, to protect the car while you’re working around the engine, to clean dirty spark plugs, and to wipe off your hands are just a few.

• Mechanics Overalls – A day out in your classic is always special and that probably means you’re wearing your favorite car shirt, and getting it all greasy due to fixing a mechanical breakdown would be quite unfortunate. Having a pair of mechanic overalls to put on over your clothes would allow you to get dirty and still arrive at your destination with no telltale signs your car broke down on the way.

• Gloves – Maybe it sounds like a girlie thing to have on hand, pun intended, but even if your car only needs a bolt tightened up or a spark plug cleaned up, why get back into your nicely detailed classic with dirty hands.

• Fluids – Having a small box with an assortment fluids like water, oil, brake fluid, WD40 and Liquid Wrench Penetrating Oil can prevent a great day from turning bad.

• Tape – We’re talking electrician tape and duct tape for quick and temporary fixes for anything from wires to detached mufflers. And hopefully it’s used to get you home from a car show and not before.

• Fire Extinguisher – The smallest fire can cause a costly disaster that a $30 fire extinguisher can stop in an instant.

• A Recovery Strap - If by chance you can't get the car running again, we suggest you use a recovery strap, rather than a rope or chains, to have someone tow you to the nearest mechanic. The reason is that a recovery strap is usually made of nylon, it's quite flexible and has the ability to stretch and recoil. Stretching helps the strap to absorb the shock load and builds up a bit of stored energy that contributes to the pulling once the initial tug has stopped.

If this all sounds like too much stuff to carry around in the trunk just make sure you don't leave home without a mobile phone and have paid-up membership to a roadside assistance company.




Winter is without a doubt the hardest season of the year on your classic car. If you are like me, you try to take care of all the routine maintenance before the cold weather hits and hope it all holds together until Spring arrives.

Well, spring is almost here and there are a number of things the shade tree mechanic will want to be doing the very instant the snows clear away, maintenance on the prized car. It needs it very badly by now. For the last three to four months your car hasn't had an oil change, or chassis lubrication or a number of other things that badly need doing.

  • Tires—tend to your tires. By rotating them seasonally, you extend the life of the set. As the weather gets warmer and temperatures increase, tire pressure changes. Under-inflated tires reduce a vehicle's fuel efficiency by an average of 3.3 percent, according to www.fueleconomy.gov. Tires should be checked monthly to make sure that they are inflated to manufacturers' recommendations, which can typically be found on the vehicle door placard or in the glove box. Be sure to avoid over-inflating the tires, as this can lead to premature or irregular tire wear.
  • Blades—wiper blades take a severe beating. Early spring is a good time to check and replace them.
  • Underbody— clean your vehicle's underbody. There's no magic cleaning solution that will get rid of the corrosive salt build-up for those who live in heavy winter urban areas. Make sure you bring the car to the car wash shop and get the entire body, along with undercarriage, systematically washed and the sand and salt fully removed.
  • Fluids—check all automotive fluids and top off as necessary. Winter driving conditions require your engine to work harder and deplete fluid levels faster. Cold temperatures can wreak havoc on an engine if it is not cared for properly, as cold startups are among the most severe conditions that engines undergo. Drivers need to protect their vehicles with a quality motor oil to endure the varying temperatures as most of the country changes from cooler to warmer temperatures. The changing of seasons serves as an excellent reminder of the importance of using high quality motor oils in your engine.

  • Brakes—examine your brakes. Like wipers, brakes take on a bigger role during wintertime and should be checked to ensure they've survived.

  • Air filters tend to become heavy due to pollen affecting the overall output of the vehicle. You should immediately replace the air filters if you found them to be inappropriate in order to enhance the performance of your car. You should remove dirt, debris and leaves from the cowl screen and other crevices. Leaves that are present in the cowl screen can break producing residue that can block the evaporator drain. Dry wiping your car with the paper towel or similar paper item will scrape the clear coat. Make sure to utilize mild lather and water to clean the affected region. Spring time can be a good time to take proper care of your vehicle. If you reside in the snow region of our nation the primary thing to do is to make sure that sand and salt is away from your car.

  • The next thing you must do is to have a good coat of wax to be applied to assist in protecting your car from the strong UV sunrays. Your car must be vacuumed to eliminate sand and salt that might have entered. You should also check the hood.

  • Confirm all the fluids involving the coolant mechanism and the AC before those humid and hot days arrive. Running the AC system once in a while will certainly keep it operational when you require it.

  • If pot holes are a problem in your region you must have the suspension examined to make sure there are no damaged components from getting jumped. Worn suspension components can easily lead to tire and other parts hastily wearing and alignment hassles. A vehicle having bad alignment can ultimately lead to poor driving, handling and hamper your cars fuel mileage.
