Exhibitor Application

The Art Of The Car Concours® is by invitation only. We invite those vehicles that we feel best exemplify a wide variety of representative vintage automobiles, race cars, hot rods, trucks, motorcycles, pedal/electric cars, and bicycles. Several factors are taken into consideration for accepting a vehicle for the Art of the Car Concours®. The following information and guidelines will help clarify the consideration given to each vehicle.

Vehicles newer than 1976 are generally not considered for the Concours. Vehicles are to be ‘original’ in nature. They can be restored to original type configuration. Modified or resto-rods will not be accepted. Replicas, clones, and tributes of original vehicles will not be accepted. Very high performance supercars of any year such as Audi R8, Bugatti (post 1987), Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes SLS, Porsche 918 Speedster, etc. will be considered. Exhibitors are encouraged to not submit Applications for vehicles displayed on the show field in 2015.

Here is a list of examples of what would not be accepted. While not complete, it does provide some background.

  • An original 1950 Mercury with a ’63 Chevy engine
  • A fiberglass or steel 1932 Ford replica
  • An original 1960 Austin Healey that has been customized with a custom interior, exterior or engine
  • A 1965 Mustang fastback modified to simulate a 1965 Shelby GT350

If you would like to have a vehicle considered, please observe the following steps:

  1. No more than 180 automobiles and trucks will be selected. No more than 40 vintage motorcycles or bicycles will be selected. The earlier you submit your vehicle for consideration, the better. Individuals that wait until the deadline usually find the field has been set.
