The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance was a feast for classic car aficionados. Beautiful cars and perfect weather combined for a great event. My next article will have more images and a list of the major award winners.
I tried something new for this posting of the Rolls-Royces at Amelia Island. Examiner is promoting their “List” format for posting articles but it is a lot more editorial work but no more informational than the “slide show” format that I normally use. Let me know what you think.
For those of you that are still reading my Examiner articles, I thank you. You are true gearheads to put-up with all the advertising on, in, and around my articles. I know that you especially detest those invasive pop-up ads but they are out of my control. Examiner, Inc. makes big bucks from those ads so I imagine they are there to stay. Also, I have quit posting my articles on Facebook since they choose an image to run that usually has absolutely nothing to do with my article.
I enjoy writing and photographing classic cars and hope to continue sharing with you. Stay tuned. I have been contacted by a couple of sites/blogs that want me to join them. Wonder if anybody at Examiner ever reads the articles?
