20 Amazing Photos From the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d'Elegance

South Carolina style.

The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d'Elegance, held every fall in South Carolina, is evolving into one of the coolest and most eclectic classic automotive events in the world. 

Kicking off with various vintage vehicle rallies and an Auctions America sale, with galas and other gracious happenings surrounding the Concours itself, it's an extremely civilized week of classic car events with just the right amount of Southern gentleman-style charm.

Here are 20 great photos from the latest edition courtesy of Airows' roving photographer:
