The Concorso d'Eleganza and Award Ceremony concluded the
2003 AROC Convention. South Flroida cooperate providing sunshine and a beuatiful setting in Snyder Park. We enjoyed
great outdoors and the sight of many beautiful cars. A barbecue lunch was followed by the Award Ceremony for the Speed
Trials, Autocross, and Concorso d'Eleganza. Boy, we had fun!
A special thanks to the Supreme Judges:
Bob Bartel, Ed Geller, Bill Gilham, Joost Gompels, Alex Gouras, Matt Jones, and Arno Leskinen.
I am sure there were very nice cars I had no chance
to photograph. If you have pictures you want posted please e-mail those to firstname.lastname@example.org
