The 22nd Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor, has announced the featured marques for its 2017 event slated for Saturday and Sunday, May 6-7. The Concours will feature both the automobile marque of Stutz (above), and the category of American ’50s classics and Hot Rods. The event will also welcome Utilities as the boat classic marque.
The show takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, Texas, attracting crowds usually numbering more than 15,000. Car and boat exhibitors come from all across the United States, all contributing to the more than $1.5 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.
Invitations and entry forms for Keels & Wheels 2017 are available online, and must be submitted no later than March 1, 2017. 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 one photo 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.
