| Following the resounding success of the inaugural Concours d'Elegance of Texas last spring, organizers have announced special features and classes for its second annual event, scheduled for May 5, 2013 at the award winning La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa in Montgomery, Texas. The Concours is one of the highlights of The Houston Classic Weekend, which will run from May 3-6, also featuring Worldwide Auctioneers The Houston Classic Auction, now in its twelfth year. Weekend visitors can once again look forward to a spectacular gathering of vintage motorcars, racecars and antique motorcycles and anticipate another Texas-sized welcome at the glorious lakeside setting of La Torretta on the shores of Lake Conroe, just north of Houston. Celebrating the Cars of Carroll Shelby as one of its featured classes, the 2013 Concours d'Elegance of Texas will showcase important Cobras and Mustangs from 1962 through 1971, including the only 427 Dragon Snake Cobra ever built.
'Alongside the cars of Carroll Shelby, eighteen individual classes will recognize a distinct range of marques and eras, including antique and vintage through 1924, the classic era, post war automobiles, race cars and pre- and post-war motorcycles,' said Mike Ames, Concours Chairman. 'We were overwhelmed by the response from collectors to our inaugural event and look forward to welcoming visitors with another stunning field of entrants in 2013. We set out to establish the Concours d'Elegance of Texas as one of the country's finest Concours events and are more than ever committed to this objective and excited by the future.'
