FAMOUS MOVIE CARS STAR AT 2017 AMELIA ISLAND CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE  While the Grand Classics are always well represented, it is the unique and iconoclastic special classes that have helped The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance earn the unofficial title of 'The People's Concours.'

On March 12, 2017 a full class of famous Movie Cars will trigger memories of sitting in a dark movie theater, or, better yet, a drive-in, daydreaming about a famous, or, perhaps infamous, movie car. Hero or villain, we loved them all.

Nine cars made famous by feature films from 1964 through 1988 will trigger fresh nostalgia at The Amelia in 2017. It's an all-star cast:

-James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger- 1964

    -The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider from Gumball Rally - 1976

    -The 1924 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Riviera Salamanca used in Sabrina-1954

    This list wouldn't be complete without The 1949 Buick Roadmaster convertible that practically starred in the multi-academy award-winning Rain Man of 1988.

    'Great cars and special movies are among the most evocative and enduring elements of modern American life and culture,' said Bill Warner, founder and Chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.

    'When Wayne Carini brought the 1949 Rain Man Buick Roadmaster to Amelia last year it triggered something important. Memories of special cars and movies often frame the central moments of our emotional lives. Usually they resurrect happy memories. Those feelings and memories are precisely what we're shooting for with the Movie Cars class,' said Warner.
