Microcars at 2010 Hilton Head Concours

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

It was very cold, only got up to about 60 degrees and very windy all day. Not a good day to be out in open or in a Jolly car driving over to the meet.   Buster and Brenda Tankersley won with their 1957 BMW Isetta.    The Palmetto awards went to  Mark and Hillary Becker in their 1939 American Bantam Station Wagon  and Larry and Janice Newberry in their 1958 Vespa 400 Jolly. As usual the microcars stirred up a lot of interest. There was a walking tour of the microcars at noon that was put on by  J.C. O’Steen.   Other people attending the event from microcar world wias Robert and Betty Mercer with their 1940 Bantam Hollywood ,Don and Ruth Ittel with their Vespa 400,  Patricia Schwarze drove her 1967 Citroen 2CV and exhibited, Bruce Hall had his 1971 Fiat SHellette and Lane Motor Museum had a 1959 Fram King S-7 and a 1969 SS Suburban on display. As usual the show was wonderful with lots of people visiting even with the cool weather. A great time was had by all. There was a great group of all classes of cars. Probably the best to date. Looking forward to next year. – Larry Newberry
