A pair of gleaming black pre-war classics were selected as best of show Saturday at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, which was moved up a day on short notice because of stormy weather expected Sunday on the Florida coast. The Amelia Island Concours customarily awards two top winners – Best of Show Elegance and Best of Show Sport – that recognizes the two main branches of the collector car hobby. This year, the Best of Show Elegance award went to a rare and spectacular 1935 Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Torpedo Phaeton with Walker LeGrande coachwork and a supercharged straight-8 engine. The owner is Terence Adderley of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, a well-known and longtime collector of American classic cars.
