While those of us residing at higher latitudes and altitudes are still feeling the chill of winter (we just got 3 feet of fresh snow up here in Northern California), the weather is starting to warm up further south at sea level. As such, some folks are bringing out the metal for a little show and shine action, starting with the Amelia Island Concourse d’Elegance in Florida. Scheduled to take place March 9th through the 12th, 2017 marks the 22nd running of the event, and includes several top-dollar lifestyle events, celebrity appearances, parties, and of course, the associated elegance competition. However, one of the biggest draws for car collectors is the incredible line-up of high-end auctions, with some of the most rare, beautiful, and downright expensive autos in existence hitting the block to exchange hands for vast quantities of money. Watching the hammer fall on some of these machines could be considered a spectator sport, like a battle of the bank accounts where he with the most zeroes wins.
