The 24th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance, benefiting Today’s Harbor for Children, formerly known as The Boys & Girls Harbor, has announced the Featured Marques for the event slated for Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5, 2019.
The Concours will honor 100 Years of Bentley, as well as featuring Lamborghini and Shelby. Owners of classic cars and antique wooden boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition. Judging takes place on Saturday, May 4. The classic boating side of the event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an international organization established to standardize the judging procedure. An incredible array of classic wooden boats and vintage fiberglass boats, both large and small, will be on display.
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, a bayside suburb of Houston and attracts more than 10,000 attendees. The car and boat exhibitors come from every part of the United States, contributing to the more than $1.7 million that the Concours has raised to date for local charities.
Sixty car and 20 boat judges evaluate nearly 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.
Online entry forms for the 2019 Keels & Wheels can be found here. 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 photos of the car or boat, along with year, make, model, owner information and a brief history of the entry. Keels & Wheels does not typically consider any automobiles newer than 1972 for entry in the event.
