Keels & Wheels

Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance will be held on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1 at Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas. The event, expected to attract more than 15,000 visitors, will feature 300 classic cars and boats from around the United States.

 

“This year Keels & Wheels is celebrating 100 years of Indianapolis racing, and we will be honoring Century Boats; specifically the 50th anniversary of the Century Sabre,” said Chairman Bob Fuller. “The event will also feature previously raced Indy cars, such as the 1935 Miller-Ford, and pace cars.”

 

On display will be the 1922 Bentley Tourist Trophy sports car, the first Bentley to ever enter an Indy competition. Also, a Copenhagen-Gilmore racing car from AJ Foyt’s collection will be on display.

 

“In addition to putting on such an interesting and fun-filled event, Keels & Wheels is also a great supporter of the community,” said Pam Summers, president of Bay Area Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Proceeds from the raffle of a 2011 C-Class Mercedes, generously donated by Alex Rodriguez Mercedes Benz in League City, will benefit Boys & Girls Harbor, an organization in LaPorte that provides healthy, comprehensive care for children and families in crisis.”

 

Also available for viewing will be the Dream Car of beloved musician, singer and actor, Bobby Darin.

 

"Darin’s automobile is one of the most fabulous custom cars ever built; with every futuristic innovation money could buy,” said Fuller.

 

Darin, best known for his rendition of “Mack the Knife” drove the car to special events, including the Academy Awards.
