About Us

About the Atlanta Concours d'Elegance

There are numerous car shows being held throughout the country every weekend, in venues from parking lots to parks, where anyone can see a large variety of vehicles from exotics, muscle cars, hot rods, rat rods, older cars and even some classics.   So, what makes a Concours special and unique?  The elegant venue, a full weekend of activities, and most importantly, the cars themselves.  The Atlanta Concours takes great pride in presenting cars built from 1900 to 1968 that are rare, seldom seen, expensive and beautiful.  They are truly works of art!

Life long friends and business associates, Bill Wallet and Harry Krix  joined together almost five years ago to realize their dream of producing a major classic automobile show for the Atlanta community. Several attempts have been made by others to do just that, but those efforts have never come close to our vision. Our goal is to create The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance and join the ranks of the premier east and west coast concourses.

In 2018 we established the Atlanta Concours d’Elegance Foundation, a domestic non-profit corporation whose mission is two fold:  1) to restore mobility to the lives of the disabled both civilians and veterans, and 2) to perpetuate the hobby of collecting and restoring classic cars.  Our primary event is the annual Atlanta Concours d’Eleglance. A portion of the proceeds from this annual show supports the Shepherd Center, the Concours Veterans programs, and McPherson College Automotive Restoration Program.

Our goal is to entertain you with an exciting, unique, high-end classic automobile exposition that dazzles your senses and surpasses your expectations. Our job is to present 180-200 autombiles that, hopefully you have never seen before.  The majority of these cars will not be found in volume at any place other than a true Concours.  Our mission is to restore mobility –  people, cars and lives.

The Atlanta Concourse d’Elegance is not affiliated with any other car show.

Shepherd Center

The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance is proud to support the Shepherd Center.  Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the Shepherd Center is a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neuromuscular conditions.

Veterans Initiatives

We are forever grateful to our veterans for their selfless service on behalf of our nation. The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance is proud to support veterans initiatives.

McPherson College Scholarships

McPherson College is the only school in America to provide a bachelor’s degree in automotive restoration. As a strategic partner, we are proud to support them through assistance with internships in museums and restoration shops, scholarships, and other programs.  Programs like this will ensure the long-term viability of collector cars and the hobby of collecting the rare and beautiful cars of the past.
