November 2 – 5th


The Freude Event at Hilton Head Island was attended by 300+ members from all across the country.  15 North Texas members and guests were at the event.  The event had a great program this year with the first day having 11 speakers that covered technical issues for restoration of cars, updates on the collector car hobby, tips on concours preparation of cars, tips on photographing cars for sale and presentations, cars to buy for collectors.  All great presentations.  The second and third days were tours, drives and rally’s.   The final day of Freude ended with a banquet and a great speaker regarding the status of the collector car hobby.  Saturday morning was to be the Legends of the Autobahn concours on the golf course prior to the Sunday Concours d’Elegance.  Saturday was cold and raining so the Legends of the Autobahn was moved to Sunday with the Concours show.  Jerry Chenault won a beautiful crystal bowl trophy for his beautiful 107 at the Legends event. While there was some rain and temperatures that were cold the event was great fun with time to visit with old friends and meet new ones.  The hotel was excellent and the program for the week was informative regarding our hobby, the drives gave us a chance to tour the area which was beautiful and to look forward to another national club event.
