18th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance  Call for Entries : Classic Car and Boat Show now accepting entries

The 18th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor, is now accepting car and boat entries for exhibitors to participate in the event, which is scheduled for May 4-5, 2013.

The weekend-long, nationally acclaimed classic car and vintage wooden boat show takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, TX and attracts more than 15,000 attendees. The exhibitors and spectators come from every part of the United States, contributing to the more than $1 million that the Concours has raised to date for local charities.

Owners of classic cars and antique wooden boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition, which takes place on Saturday, May 4, 2013. The classic boating event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an international organization established to standardize the judging procedure.

Nearly 60 car judges and 20 boats judges evaluate approximately 40 classes for cars and 20 classes for boats. In addition, Keels & Wheels welcomes celebrity and VIP judges to participate in honoring select vehicles and boats for the 'Chairman's Award'.

This year, the event is honored to once again welcome Bill Warner as the Honorary Chief Judge. As the founder of the Amelia Island Concours, which is one of the most prestigious Concours in the nation, as well as the recipient of the 2002 Meguiar's Award Collector Car Hobby Person of the Year, Warner's expertise and insight on classic automobiles is among the most proficient in the world. Warner's extensive knowledge and encompassing history of involvement in such events makes him and his assessments an asset to the Keels & Wheels Concours.

Invitations and entry forms for the 2013 Keels & Wheels event are available online and must be submitted no later than March 1, 2013. Because only 200 automobiles and 100 boats will be selected, it is important for submissions to be made as early as possible. Potential exhibitors are asked to submit one photo of the car or boat, along with year, make, model, owner information and a brief history of the entry. Typically Keels & Wheels does not consider any automobiles newer than 1972 for entry in the event.
