4th Annual Vintage Auto Film Exhibition


The checkered flag meets the red carpet at the Vintage Auto Film Exhibition presented by MonroneyLabels.com. This years event features the film ‘Hurley‘ – about racing legend Hurley Haywood – which headlines a selection of engaging auto-centric films. Hors d’oeuvres & cocktails add to an atmosphere of relaxed glamour amid gorgeous classic, collector, and race car displays as the Vintage Auto Film Exhibition ushers in the Hilton Head Concours weekend at our new venue, the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.  

Attendees will follow Haywood’s journey through a screening of the Patrick Dempsey produced film, plus learn about the storied history of Brumos Racing – including the Brumos Porsche 917 on display courtesy of the Brumos Collection.   A Q&A with Haywood follows the screening.

Multiple-award winning ‘The Lauda Legacy‘ anchors the short films segment, featuring Niki Lauda’s 1974 Monaco pole-winning Ferrari 312 with three-time Le Mans winner Marco Werner. Making its big-screen premiere is ‘Phoenix Rising‘, a film that follows the unexpected restoration of a significant Porsche Abarth Carrera GTL, plus the latest ‘Why I Drive‘ from Hagerty.
