Hosted by the Art of Speed Events, Kilts and Kars is a monthly open car show staged at the Tilted Kilt in Boca Raton, Florida. What separates this car show from your typical local car show is the welcome diversity among show attendees and the cars on display. Classic Car News saw an array of classic cars with seemingly every sub-culture within the hobby represented.

This diversity can be attributed to the hosts. At the helm of Art of Speed Events is John Zeilinga, chief executive and founder. Based in South Florida, Zeilinga said his mission is to produce car shows and racing events. He and his company also produce private-label car shows for local business’ and car clubs.

In addition to Kilts and Kars, Zeilinga organizes the Palm Beach Cars and Coffee events, which may be the largest cars-and-coffee gathering in the country with an estimates 2000 cars in attendance each month.

Other events Zeilinga and his team produce include a Classic and Custom car show every second Wednesday of the month at Ellie’s 50s Diner and such one-off events such as the Heroes and Horsepower custom car show.

Zeilinga is not only a leader within the industry, but an innovator whose dedication to his community inspires car owners from all walks of life to show their vehicles.
