Space City T’s March Tour (Rain Delay!)

Category : Event

Quick Day Tour to relax your mind and spirit.

The tour takes place in Brenham, TX. As usual this may be the first tour of the year (2017). We normally wait until the weather warms up enough to pull the T’s back out. It’s been a little different so far, because there has not been very many cold days since the T-party. 

We meet up and unload at 404 Church Road in Brenham at 9:00 AM. From there we startup, stop, and eat at various eventful pit stops throughout the city. Plan on returning where we started at 4:00 PM to load up and go home.

The 21st Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor, is currently recruiting exhibitors to participate in the event scheduled for April 23-24, 2016.

The weekend-long, nationally acclaimed event is the largest classic car and vintage wooden boat show in the United States. It takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, TX and attracts more than 15,000 attendees. The car and boat exhibitors come from every part of the country, contributing to the more than $1.5 million that the concours has raised to date for local charities.

The features for the 21st Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance include marques of Duesenberg, concept cars and muscle cars for automobiles. The featured marque for antique boats is Chris Craft Racing Runabouts.
Owners of classic cars and antique wooden boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition, which takes place on Saturday, April 23, 2016. The classic boating side of the event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an international organization established to standardize the judging procedure. Sixty car and twenty boat judges evaluate nearly 40 classes for cars and 20 classes for boats. In addition, Keels & Wheels welcomes celebrity and VIP judges to participate in honoring select vehicles and boats.

Invitations and entry forms for the 2016 Keels & Wheels event are available online and must be submitted no later than February 22, 2016. Because only 200 automobiles and 100 boats will be selected, it is important for submissions to be made as early as possible. Potential exhibitors are asked to submit one photo of the car or boat, along with year, make, model, owner information and a brief history of the entry. Keels & Wheels does not typically consider any automobiles newer than 1972 for entry in the event.

For more information about submitting your classic automobile or antique boat, or to download an entry form, please visit www.keels-wheels.com or follow us on Facebook.
