    If it has been a while for your concours judging, this is a fine opportunity to go for the current Platino at 97 points.

    If you really want to demonstrate the complete quality of your car then enter for Coppa Bella Machina too.

    Interesting question.

    As for the GTS one count says there were originally 96 for US plus there is a one-off Euro that is currently in the US. How many of these remain in the US and Canada plus how many Euros have found there way to North America I do not know.

    I have come across conflicting numbers for the coupes 1,284 and 1,301. Maybe someone has a count of how many were originally to US and Canada.

    Keep looking for more updates. Glad you will be attending.

    We have been told a well known east coast collector has already committed to send some very special cars.

    Headquarters hotel is the Radisson in Corning.

    There will be safe parking at the hotel.

    If you intend to enter or Coppa Bella Machina register early. This has a limited number of slots and normally has a wait list. Do understand that even if registered the car has to achieve 97 points in the Sunday concours to advance or further evaluation.

    From the FCA2018.org website:
    Hotel information and reservation links will be posted here by October, 2017. Registration for FCA2018 will open in January, 2018.

    We will try to provide answers quickly after a post.

    This is Jim from Intercity Lines, the official auto transporter for the 2018 FCA International Meet. For over 35 years we have been providing fully enclosed, lift gate loaded, door to door transport with one of the most experienced fleets in the industry.

    As you are planning for the event, please feel free to private message me on here, email me at Jim@Intercitylines.com, or call our office at 1-800-221-3936 and I will happily provide a transport rate and answer any questions you may have.

    We will be offering round trip transport on an individual basis, but strongly encourage local FCA regions and chapters to group their cars together at one pick up location in order to receive our truck load rates, which are significantly cheaper than if they were all shipped separately.

    We are very excited to be a part of such an incredible event and look forward to servicing you the best we can!

    It's a long shot, planning a year ahead without knowing if business will allow, but we'll do our best to bring our 973 US specs over. Just got an unexpected award for preservation at Concorso Italiano in Monterey!

    Registration will be opening soon. The Radisson is already sold out but there is a wait list. Other options are available.

    If you are considering putting your car into Coppa Bella Machina or Coppa GT you better act fast when registration opens. There are a limited quantity of slots available.

    Although not Vintage related, Futuro Classico has limited slots too.

    Radisson booked and I'm really looking forward to this meet. I went to my first international meet last year at Daytona and had a blast. And I didn't even bring a Ferrari with me! This year I plan on entering my 308 QV into the Coppa Bella Machina and hoping for a platino :)
