Strange Concours for us. Left Charleston a little after 9 and got to the Beaufort turnoff where one of the cars in our caravan, a 2013 BMW x5 Mperformance 4.4L TT with 70K miles, lost its engine. We spent 2.5 hrs at a gas station waiting for a tow truck to take it back to Charleston.
We finally made it to the Concours and saw about a 100 people gathered around a lagoon taking pics. Roof sticking out of the water.
All the landmarks gone. So many trees down. Not Hurricane Hugo level of destruction, but really bad.
The show seemed a little disjointed. Maybe our earlier issues put me in a weird mood, IDK.
The broken BMW had an extended warranty and the bill said $27k. Very interesting day to say the least.

Hilton Head Concours/Savannah Speed Classic is ON!

Sorry to hear your story. I really thought things came out good considering the circumstances. It was a very much needed morale booster for the Island to have the show go on. Don't know what happened with the Packard but it sure is a shame.

We are still digging out and making repairs and will be for at least another six months. A big thank you to anyone who was a part of it!

It was an honor to participate!
The organizers did their usual excellent job of putting the show together.
We've been to many shows but HHI is definitely our favorite.
We took my future father-in-law, 96 years old and a Pearl Harbor survivor. He had never been to a car show and he loved it.
He and I walked the entire field.

Furthermore, we always find new and interesting restaurants to visit. This past time we tried three new (to us) places:
Wise Guys
Sage Room
Aunt Chiladas
Enjoyed every one.
We had two really good breakfasts at Stacks but were disappointed at Bistro 843 - probably won't go back.
