March 9th, 2008 - Amelia Island, Florida - Concours d’Elegance

Sam Cummings is awarded “Best In Class” with his Roman Auto Prep restored and maintained Trans Am GTV.  This year the prestigious Concours, held off the coast of northern Florida, featured 1966 through 1972 Trans Am cars.  Sam’s car was entered in the “Under Two Liter” Trans Am class.

Sam Cumming’s car is the famous Horst Kwech Trans Am car from 1971 and 1972 which was restored in 1996 by Roman Auto Prep and has been raced continuously since.  Roman explains, "While it is obvious that Sam’s car has been an active race car it still shows very well.  Even by today's standards Horst’s original graphic concept is quite impressive and continues to catch everyone’s eye. Beyond the cars visual impact is the fact that this car was certainly the most technically advanced Alfa racing sedan ever constructed  for the Trans Am and I think this fact may have swayed the judges."
