The judges at Amelia Island do not judge on perfection of the marque but rather on which one has the best story, hence one cannot call it a concours.
The 916 and a orange six were both near perfect, but yet the judges gave first second and third place to the 3 factory GTs with famous racing history. The cars were dirty, dented, mismatched, with bad paint, and nothing that should ever be at a Concours but rather an historical display, and for that we were very glad they would have been there. Even the factory six was much cleaner than the GTs and it was very mucked up (but of course it can get away with it it is a prototype.)
