You never know who you’ll run into at EURO Auto Festival. Every year there are plenty of local dignitaries, racers, famous collectors, and industry leaders. The 2017 show is sure to have all of this as usual, but in addition, we’re happy to announce that our featured guest will be Keith Martin.
Keith is an automotive switch-hitter of sorts with talents in every facet of the collector car hobby. He’s a writer, a publisher, a television host, an academic, a racer, an advocate and he’s even been known to turn a wrench or two.
Keith is the founder of Sports Car Market and, according to his bio on that publication’s website:
[Keith] founded the monthly Sports Car Market magazine twenty-six years ago, and it has developed into the authoritative informed voice of the collector car hobby. Martin’s second publication, American Car Collector, launched two years ago, continues to be the fastest growing collector car publication in America.
Martin’s columns on collecting and reviews of exotic cars, including the Ford GT and the Bentley Continental GT, have appeared in the New York Times. Noted for his onstage wit, warmth and deep knowledge of collectible cars, Martin has been an emcee at Pebble Beach, the Meadow Brook Concours, Concorso Italiano, the Kirkland Concours, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, Keels and Wheels and many other events.
He has hosted numerous television specials, and is the co-host of “What’s My Car Worth” shown on the Velocity channel. He was the Chairman of the Meguiar’s Collector Car Person of the Year Award, is on the Board of Trustees of the LeMay Museum and has served on the faculty of the Collier Museum symposium on Connoisseurship.
Keith will be emceeing a number of events at EURO as well as spending time on the show grounds. So be sure to purchase your official EURO poster, bring a Sharpie and have him sign it.
EURO is held at the Preserve at Verdae Green, which provides a user-friendly, picturesque golf course backdrop. The combination of rolling fairways and rolling automotive history is simply breathtaking. Whether you’re a lifelong car junkie or just looking for something to do on a Saturday, EURO will not disappoint.
Throughout the course, you’ll see dozens of makes of cars…some so rare that they only make public appearances a few times a year. Others are familiar makes that bring back memories and inspire new ones. In addition to cars, show-goers can experience European food and culture as well as automotive-related merchandise and souvenirs.
