CarCoterie hosts The Hangar, on March 4, as a kick-off to the widely attended Concours in Amelia Island. The ticketed event will be a lively afternoon party for car enthusiasts to reconnect ahead of the Sunday Concours, taking place from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Bent Wing Flight Services and features an exhibition of sports and racing vehicles from the 1950s to the present, and a retrospective of historic aircraft.

The late afternoon soirée will also feature premium wines, spirits, delicious bites, and live music. Tickets can be purchased at TheHangarAmelia.com, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Friends of Fernandina Aviation.

A few highlights from the curated exhibition include historic aircraft such as a 1938 Lockheed 12A and a 1944 North American P-51D Mustang. Sports and racing vehicles in the lineup include notable cars such as a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL in Linden Green, a 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso and a 2008 Koenigsegg CCX Manual Transmission.
