Boca at Nova - Concours Reimagined




 

It’s a story that goes back to 2008, when South Florida’s Rick Case combined forces with the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County to form the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance.  Over the years, the event grew in stature and success to become the premier classic car event on the East Coast. With the sad passing of Rick Case, thankfully the story continues.   The Concours experienced a change in direction in 2023, with a new, fresh and imaginative event emerging.   With Wayne Carini, of Chasing Classic Cars fame supporting the event, proceeds going to the NSU Autism Institute, and the unwavering loyalty of the organizers, Boca at Nova was born.   It was a prelude to the 2025 Elegance at Boca.

 

The February 24th show presented an extraordinary commitment to the utmost in quality and exclusivity in the automotive world. A slightly drizzly morning gave way to brilliant sunshine where classic car enthusiasts and aficionados flocked to Nova Southeast University in Davie. For many, the classic car show was a chance to relive the golden age of automotive design and innovation. It was a nostalgic journey back in time, where every car told a story and every rev of the engine echoed with the spirit of adventure. From brass era vehicles, iconic sports cars of the 1960s to elegant luxury pre-War vehicles, the show celebrated the timeless allure of classic automobiles.

One of the highlights of the show was the rare car collection curated by Dr. Eddie Dauer.  Several of Dr Dauer’s incredible vehicles were on display from his museum, all of them rare and meticulously restored American classics.   Wayne Carini, renowned for his expertise in restoring and preserving classic automobiles mingled with the crowd. Spectators were treated to get up close to vehicles fresh from Pebble Beach and Hilton Head Concours, with major collectors such as Darrel Cole, Frank Rubino and Stephen Plaster showing the best of the best.  Crowd faves included a spectacular 1932 Auburn, the award-winning rare Citroen, owned by Volker Rivniger (fresh from the Motorcar Cavalcade) and our own George Hervert’s Series I E-type.

 

MC’s Ramsey Potts and Brad Phillips kept the cars flowing and the crowd entertained during the entire day.  The day was a smash success.  It was both a tribute to the heady days of the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance and the promise of great things to come in 2025.  Congratulations to Russell Glace, Erich Smith and the entire organizing and judging team for a superb day.
