Keep the Concours Alive While Supporting Charities

Sure, concours events are great places to see rare and unusual cars up close, meet like-minded individuals who share a love of the automobile, and enjoy a weekend looking at some great cars. 

But did you know that concours events also serve a larger, more important role? These concours events often act as major fundraisers that support a number of important charities.

These charities often rely on the money raised by concours events to fulfill their missions, so if the events don't take place, the charities don't get the money they need.

That's why we have partnered with 21 of your favorite concours events to hold the virtual Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty. Even though we can't meet in person to raise the money, we can still work to get the funds to the charities that need it most.

Yes, entering in and spectating is free for everyone interested in participating in the Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty, but we ask that you please donate what you can to the charities that rely on the funds normally raised by these concours events. To view the full list of participating concours and their respective charities, visit the Concours d'Cancelation website at canceledconcours.com.

What exactly is the Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty? It's a virtual concours event created as a way to support the numerous real-world concours events impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The best part, though, is that anyone can enter–and at no charge. 

To learn more about how to enter and donate, visit the Concours d'Cancelation website at canceledconcours.com.

The Car: 1963 Studebaker Avanti

The Owner: Chuck Donley

The Location: Pilot Hill, California

The Class: Concours d'LeMons

The Details: This car was wrecked in a high speed T-bone collision in 1971 and totaled. It was put in a barn in Yuba City Ca. and used as a parts car, with many still usable items being removed over the years. I purchased it in 2015 for the sole purpose of making a 24 Hours of LeMons endurance racecar. After sourcing a used 289cid Studebaker V8 and transmission, a bit of fiberglass work(The Avanti has a fiberglass body) and installing all required safety equipment it is back on the road(race). It competes in 1 or 2 races each season and has finished as high as 2nd in class. On a road race course the car looks amazing but handles like an old pickup truck. I was invited by to enter this event by The Concours d'LeMons

Hey that's a really cool Avanti—and bonus points for racing it—though to make sure you are properly entered, make sure you post it in the comments here.
