Winners of the 2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance may get to celebrate with a big ribbon and lots of champagne, but only the Hagerty Youth Judges can place the coveted kid stamp of approval. This year’s panel of kid judges were out in force, weighing in on a selection of five classic cars on the lawn at the Amelia Island concours. Their votes recognized three top entrants, and they crowned a definitive first-place winner.
Whether the kids were ogling engines, savoring an exhaust note, or admiring pre-war design their poignant remarks and discerning tastes represent the next generation of car enthusiasts. For once, we’ll shut up and let the kids do the talking.
