NOTE: I have talked with the organizers of this even and asked if it will ever happen again. The answer is probably not. It's really to bad and I hope something takes it's place in the future.
Silverado Concours has a special place in my heart. Years ago when my wife and I were dating we went to the Silverado Concours d'Elegance when it was held at the Silverado Country Club in Napa, California. It was there that my wife saw her first American Austin (a coupe and a roadster) and I told here we would get one some day. Well, it was about 20 years later that we found our roadster and started in on the Austin Bantam trek. The Concours has been moved to the old Mare Island Naval Ship Yard where the cars are prominently displayed along the home on Officer's Row. It's a perfect place for displaying the cars in a true era atmosphere.
Tony Halekakis with his award. Jan & I received a 2nd place in our class. I had alot of grade-marked fasteners holding the fenders on and was dinged pretty hard on it (justifiably). I can tell you this, there isn't a grade-marked fastener on that car anymore!!!
