Amelia Island

The Amelia Island Concours was held March 9, 2014.  There were lots of great cars on display – McLaren Can-Am and Formula cars, a Ferrari 330P4, and Indy cars.

Cavallino Classic

The 2014 Cavallino Classic was a fantastic event.  Great shots of the Penske 512M, and close-up photos of several 512bb/LMs.

Grand Sports

On a dreary, rainy day in 2003, the Amelia Island Concours played host to all five of the original Grand Sport Corvettes.


The American Street Rod Association Nationals are held annually at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. There are always over 1000 cars on display.

Ferrari 330P4

I was thrilled to see a Ferrari 330P4 at Amelia Island in 2014. I arrived at the car just in time for the owner to open it up for photos!

Daytona Coupe

In 2009, a rare find at Amelia Island was this 1965 Cobra Daytona Coupe.

Sebring Legends

There were a lot of cars I had not seen before at the 2011 Sebring Legends of Motorsport, and  there were a wide variety of types and classes on display.

Winter Park

The Winter Park Concours is a growing show held in beautiful downtown Winter Park, Florida. Always lots of great cars on display!


Along with the Grand Sport Corvettes, the 2003 Amelia Island Concours featured the cars of Jim Hall.

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Night)

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Night)

As the day turned to night the paddock got quieter, and there were fewer spectators.  So there was ample opportunity for photos, and the primary light source being the paddock lighting made for some interesting photos.  This group of images includes some wide-angle shots of the paddock area, grandstands, and garages – they might make some good backdrops for model photography.


Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Day)

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Day)

Saturday saw the kickoff of the Daytona Classic 24 event.  Rather than have all the cars on the track at the same time, the race was made up of a series of class-based events.  I think that was to reduce the wear and tear on the old hardware, and maybe to reduce the odds of an accident.  So each class rotated through the event two or three times over the course of the 24 hours.  This process also made it much better for those of us trying to take photos, since it meant that the majority of the cars were in the paddock at any given moment.

Daytona Classic 24 – Friday

An assortment of photos from last weekends Classic Daytona 24 Hours.  What a fantastic event – lots of cars, plenty of aggressive racing, and wide-open paddocks so photos are a breeze.  This set is from Friday, November 13, 2015.  Today was the closing race of the Trans-Am season, and qualifying races for the weekend’s 24-hour race.

2015 Amelia Island Concours

Beautiful day in Amelia Island last weekend.  The place was packed, as it was the 20th anniversary show.  Lots of great cars on display, including a couple D-type Jags, several famous Maserati’s, Stirling Moss’ pea-green Ferrari 250 GTO, and countless classic cars.  Here’s a selection of over 500 photos from the concours.  Enjoy!

Sebring SVRA 2015

I was able to attend the SVRA event at Sebring Raceway last weekend.  Lots of cars there, some I’d not seen previously along with a whole lot of Trans-Am entries.  Here’s around 160 photos from the paddock and track. Enjoy!
