Atlanta Gets Their Classic Car Mojo On

FINALLY...
As an Atlanta based start-up focused on the Collector Car market, we've been scratching our heads wondering "Why doesn't Atlanta have any major concours event on the National Concours Tour?"

Not some gathering just for billionaires, but one that more people can enjoy. What many locals don't realize is that hundreds, more likely thousands, of these timeless and often one-of-a-kind cars are right here in North Georgia tucked away in private collections.

As Bob Dylan sang, "These times they are a-changin" and as a result, we've "broken into our happy dance!"


Cars & 'Q For a Cause
The first, Cars & Q for the Cause was started in 2009 as a way for employees of Choate Construction to celebrate their mutual appreciation for Classic cars. Over the past few years and with focus by Millard Choate’s daughter Emily, the event has grown from a simple company celebration to an organization focused on raising both awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and donation funds to support the fight against this debilitating disease. Watch Emily's video here.

Saturday, April 30th, 2016 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m 
Choate Construction Company Office 
8200 Roberts Drive • Atlanta, GA 30350

The 2016 event will be hosted at the Choate Construction headquarters on April 30. As in 2015, they expect participation by over 600 attendees, live music, BBQ, continuous pours of your favorite brews, and 100+ classic, muscle, and exotic cars.

Atlanta Motoring Festival and Concours d'Elegance
We are excited to announce the inaugural Atlanta Motoring Festival and Concours d'Elegance benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It is what they hope will be the beginning of a regular annual event on the national circuit.
A Three Day Event
Much like other Concours d'Elegance events the festival will be held over a three day weekend, with the main event held at Chukkar Farm Polo Club on Saturday, May 14, 2016.
Italy has the Mille Miglia, there's the California Mille and even Arizona's Copperstate 1000, now the Atlanta market will have a similar, albeit shorter, driving event on May 13 at 8:00 am at Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta. 
Registration for this event is $90.00 and includes police escorted drive to Chukkar Farm Polo Club where there will be a tour of Cashin's Sculpture Garden and a catered lunch for two with musical entertainment.
General admission to Saturday's event is $10. There are numerous events each day and evening. Car registration is $40.00 per car and includes lunch and drinks for two, a program, a commemorative front license plate, a souvenir, and a car bio in next year's program.

There are two categories to enter: Enthusiast and Trophy
  • The Enthusiast Class is open to all classic cars and will be grouped by marque at the event. These cars are eligible for a People's Choice Award.
  • The Trophy Class will be judged. You car must be approved by the board before entering this category.
Sunday will shift the event location to Historic Downtown Roswell for the Atlanta British Motorcar Day. For full event details, ticket purchases and car registration, please visit the site.
