                 Dreaming and Drooling at Amelia
by Bill Hensyl

        Once again my son, Curt, offered to pay my way
to the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance (admission,
not airfare) at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club outside of
Fernandina Beach, Fl., where he lives. As for the past
three years that I’ve attended, weather for the concours
was near perfect (sunny, not too hot, and with a slight
breeze). Attendance for the Sunday show and judging
was estimated at about 16,000, compared with about
2,000 for the first concours 15 years ago.
        Waiting around the show field while Curt parked
his truck, I spotted the Rolls-Royce display and finally
cornered a representative to whom I made clear that I
was just curious about the Ghost models on display. My
interest focused on the coupe’s “suicide doors” and the
sedan’s “barn doors” that I’d also seen at last year’s
concours. The rep explained that the coupe’s suicide
door made it easier and more comfortable to enter and
exit gracefully. If the reach to close the door was too
great, there was an easy-to-reach button that would
close the door automatically. Also built into the body
frame at the door’s opening was an umbrella holder that
dispensed a furled umbrella so you could open it before
getting out into a downpour.
        Moving on to the show field proper, what caught
my eye almost immediately was a 1938 Rolls-Royce
Wraith dual-cowl roadster with bodywork entirely of
Honduran mahogany. It was from the North Collection in
St Michael’s, MD, which last year displayed a tulipwood-
bodied Hispano-Suiza. An interesting feature was the
clamshell boot, the bottom of which gave access to the
spare tire and tools while the top opened to reveal a
fully equipped picnic set for four, matching the car’s
maximum number of occupants. When Curt remarked
that it would be perfect for martinis to be shaken, not
stirred, Mr. North commented that such a vehicle was
strictly a “champagne car.”
        In addition to the beautiful green LeBaron-bodied
two-seater Packard 12 speedster parked outside the
Ritz–Carlton entrance, there were 12 Packards being
shown for judging. They ranged from a 1929 640 Custom
runabout to a 1956 Packard Four Hundred hardtop, the
bulk being first-half thirties’ vintage. My favorite was
the grayish-cream 1933 Packard 1005 convertible coupe
V12, while Curt preferred the similar vintage white
Duesenburg roadster (note the red Packard-like hexagon
on the hubcaps!). Packard did win a Best in Class award
in the American Classic Open 1931-1932 category with
the exquisite 1932 Packard Twin Six convertible coupe
pictured here. The winning Best of Show street class
award went to a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K not unlike
the purple creation shown here.
        There were a record 275 vehicles on display
this year, ranging from motorcycles to racing cars, in-
cluding some strange ones like that shown flanked by
Chryslers on the parade track near the judges’ plat-
form. I never learned anything about it, other than it
probably was of prewar European manufacture. It’s
powered by a shroud-enclosed two-bladed prop elec-
trically started by the driver who, with his passenger,
wore leather flying helmets with goggles. Entrance to
the tandem-seat cockpit was through the oval door on
the side. Surprisingly, it was not as loud as one might
        A real surprise for me turned up in the Forgot-
ten Fiberglass section of the show. This category
covered early ‘50s one-off or specialty cars that
incorporated fiberglass bodies before Detroit got into
the act. One such car there was the pewter colored
Multiplex 186 Sport Coupe, a two-seater built by the
Multiplex Manufacturing Co. of Berwick, PA (my home
town), whose then-owner and President, Ben Crispin,
was a neighbor and family friend. It featured a tubu-
lar truss-type chassis with independent front suspen-
sion of transverse spring and wishbones, weighed 1705
lb., and had a 6-cylinder 124-hp engine that claimed
25 mpg and could reach 60 mph in 10.9 sec. with
max speed of 132 mph. The restored interior is light
tan glove leather upholstery including the spare tire
cover on a shelf behind the seats. I had an opportu-
nity to drive the Multiplex during the summer in 1979
(it was a metallic bronze then) when my family and
I visited “Mr. C.” and his wife in Berwick. The car is
now owned by his grandson, Darren, who also runs the
company and has stored there the unrestored open
racing version (once took third place at Sebring) and
a parts car. The Multiplex never went into production
because U. S. manufacturing costs were too high for
the quality intended and Mr. C wanted to produce an
American Sport car. For another time is the story of
the original Multiplex Motor Car (touring car, roadster,
and runabout) built by Mr. C.’s father around 1912.

       We’ll start the activities on Thursday, September 9 in Wildwood Crest, NJ with an 11 am Packard
caravan to Stone Harbor, NJ, just a short distance north via Ocean Drive, the inter-coastal highway. Here we’ll
have lunch at The Wetlands Institute and then embark on a “Salt Marsh Safari!” Later, we’ll do some shopping
in Stone Harbor where you can purchase some famous Stone Harbor fudge. Later we’ll caravan north to
Strathmere for dinner at the Deauville Inn, at the water’s edge. Easy return to the host hotel via the Garden
State Parkway. Evening hospitality on the hotel’s 2nd level Sun Deck, overlooking the ocean.

Make your reservations NOW with the Regal Plaza in Wildwood Crest, NJ by calling (888) 522-5670 or

       At Cape May Point State Park we’ll visit the Cape May Lighthouse and a WWII bunker on Friday
morning, after a leisurely start from the hotel at 9:30. Then we’ll caravan to the Cape May (NJ) – Lewes (DE)
Ferry Terminal for a boxed lunch and 3 ½-hour round-trip cruise on Delaware Bay. Starting at about 4:30, you’ll
be on-your-own for a late afternoon swim and then scouting for an interesting restaurant (we’ll provide a list)
and to enjoy, perhaps, the boardwalk in nearby Wildwood after dinner, with its shops, cotton candy and various
amusements. Evening hospitality.

         On Saturday morning, the first 60 people to register will be permitted the rare opportunity to visit the
Cape May Coast Guard Training Center, the only one of its kind, for a tour of the facility. The rest of us can
sign up for…Whales! Ever seen one? Here’s your opportunity. At 1:00 pm, you’ll board a large vessel for a
three-hour Atlantic Ocean Whale Watch. Lunch and the morning or afternoon (depending upon your selection)
is free for exploring the area, Cape May or swimming in the ocean at the host hotel, which has one of the finest
beaches anywhere, and a very nice beachside pool. Ocean temperatures this time of year are at their
warmest. A closing dinner is offered at Alosi’s Restaurant in Wildwood Crest Saturday evening.

       Enjoy evening hospitality, beginning on Wednesday, on the 2nd level Sun Deck at the hotel, which
overlooks the beach and the ocean. Kindly bring something to share (could you manage homemade?). We’ll
provide cold drinks.
