There is nothing like a perfect spring day to bring out beautiful cars. “Cars on Kiawah,” which took place May 6 at Kiawah’s Ocean Park, attracted 200 unique and special cars and over 2,000 spectators. The cars were displayed by country of origin and included an incredible variety ranging from a 1923 Buick Roadster to a 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Included in this year’s display were a dozen customized rat rods, including one with a beer keg converted into a gas tank. That car, owned by David Mahan won the “Beast” award. On the other end of the spectrum, Andy McKenna’s 1967 Jaguar E-Type Roadster won the “Beauty” award.

Other awards included the “Chairman’s” award won by Doug Pyle with his 1965 Porsche 911, the “Master of Ceremonies” award went to Ed Shehab with his 1965 Mustang GT, the “Mayor’s” award was won by Robert Newman with his 1939 Cadillac Series 75, the “Best Presentation” award went to Furman Cullum and his 1957 Ford Skyliner and the “Woman-Owned” award went to Martine Blake and her 1968 Porsche 911T. Fred Reeser took home both the “People’s Choice” and “Best of Show” trophies for his spectacular 1938 Jaguar SS100.
