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 apblues@yahoo.com
