Microcars at Hilton Head Island Concours

The 2008 Hilton Head Island Concours D’elegance featured a MICROCARS specific class this year
In attendance were examples of Messerschmitt Tg500, Messerschmitt KR200, Mochet Velocar, IOTA, Peel P50, Zündapp Janus, FIAT Jolly, Vespa 400, BMW Isetta 250, Berkeley and Scootacar MK2.

There were also a pair of Crosleys in another catagory: Outstanding Orphans.
(This was primarily because the “Microcars” class was featuring European Microcars and the Orphans class was featuring American Orphans, otherwise they would have been in the Microcars class)

David Anspach's Crosley Hot Shot Winning an Award

David Anspach's Crosey HotShot won an award in another catagory.

Palmetto Awards went to Janice & Larry Newberry’s FIAT Jolly and to Kerry and Linda Erendson’s Scootacar MK 2. Best of Class went to Jim Garbo’s Messerschmitt KR200.

Although NORMALLY exhibitors are required to stay until 4pm for the benefit of those who paid to get in to see the cars, the weather turned to light rain in mid-afternoon and anyone who wanted to leave the grounds around 2pm did not get any resistance from officials. Otherwise it was a gorgeous event.
Because the turnout was so good, it is possible that the Microcars Class will become a regular class at this Concours D’elegance.

More info on this and other Concours events around the country in a future issue of MICROCAR NEWS magazine.

    Congratulations to the microcar exhibitors at Hilton Head. I had the chance to observe the group from a distance all day and they had a crowd around them constantly. With the quality that was shown you guys have a lot to be prowd of. And by the way, one of those Crosleys won the orphan car group!!

    David, do you have any photos of your car? I know you won some award that weekend, and I have ONE photo of your car pulling up to receive it at the award tent.

    I have a few but the best I’ve seen so far was on Flickr under 1951 Hotshot. I don’t know who the guy is who took them but he sure is good. I’d love to have a copy of your photo!! If you need what I have I’d be happy to forward to your e-mail.

    That must be the latest Scootacar Mk 2 ever built as they stopped building them in 1964. I still visit the site where they were made on a regular Basis. The Morrisons supermarket in Hunslet, Leeds is now on the site of the locomotive factory where they were built
