2006 Concours Review

The First Concours d’Elegance of the San Juan Islands was held Saturday, September 16, 2006 at the San Juan Vineyards, 3136 Roche Harbor Road, Friday Harbor, Washington.

More than 50 cars were exhibited including many notable entries: A rare 2004 Porsche Carrera GT; this car represents engineering’s finest in road cars for Porsche. Only 1500 were built worldwide, sold for about $440,000 each, and were the fastest legal road car in the US at the time. And, of course, no car show would be complete without the Ford Model T, the real beginning of mass production automobiles in the US. Two outstanding examples were shown, a stunning yellow 1914 Model T Speedster, and a perfect black 1915 Model T.

Three awards voted by the entrants and the public were presented as well as three choices by the Organizer.

Entrant and Spectator Voting:

  • Most Unique: 1948 Rolls Royce Hearse
  • Want To Drive It Home: 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe
  • Best of Show: 1939 Packard V12 Limousine

Organizer’s Choice:

  • Most Historically Significant: 1939 Packard V12 Limousine
  • Best Preserved in Original Form: 1976 Corvette Indy Pace Car
  • Best of Show: 1940 Ford Woodie

The Concours d’Elegance proceeds went to benefit the Inter Island Medical Center through the Inter Island Healthcare Foundation*, and the San Juan Island Family Resource Center*. The three events (Concours, Auction, and Dinner) raised more than $52,000 for these two charities. * IRS 501(c)3 organizations allowing tax exempt contributions.
