The 25th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance has extended the deadline for classic car, boat and vintage motorcycle entries for the event that has been rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17-18, 2020 due to the public health threat from the coronavirus.
Entry forms for the 2020 Keels & Wheels are available online here and must be submitted no later than August 15. Only 200 automobiles, 100 boats and 20 motorcycles will be selected. Potential exhibitors are asked to submit photos of the entry, 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.
The Concours will feature Pre-War Packards, Corvettes (1953-1972), Porsche (1948-1973), and Vintage Motorcycles. The event will also feature Century Boats and Yellow Jacket Boats. Owners of classic cars, motorcycles and vintage boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition. 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.
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, boat and motorcycle exhibitors come from every part of the United States, contributing to the more than $1.8 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. An additional team of judges will evaluate the vintage motorcycles on display.
