Why, yes; that is an entire row of Porsche 917s you're seeing.

Sunday, March 14, was the 15th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, which yours truly attended for the third year. The event has grown from a regional show to one of international merit, and the cars seem to get better every single year. No matter what era or type of car you’re into, you’ll find the best examples at Amelia Island; it’s become the Eastern U.S. equivalent to Pebble Beach.

I’ll be putting up articles about some of the cars featured over the next few weeks, but here are a few teaser shots. Ever wondered what a party with 18,000 of your closest gear head friends would look like? How about if they brought 275 of the finest classic, street and race cars ever produced. Well, it would look something like these pics, after the jump:

1955 D Type Jaguar, from the Cars of the Cuban Races class

A Mercedes 300SL and its great grandson, the SLS

1919 propeller driven Leyat Helica. Not everything French is sexy.

1938 Talbot Lago T150. Now THAT'S sexy.

There’s so much creamy automotive goodness that I don’t know where to start. The immaculate 1967 427 Corvette? The cleanest 300 SL I’ve ever seen, finished in a stunning slate gray? Richard Petty’s Superbird? A DeSoto Powered Kurtis roadster? All of these and more in the coming weeks, just as soon as I sort through an entire memory card full of images.
