Stutz, American classics from the 1950s, hot rods and Utilities will be the featured marques at the 2017 Keels & Wheels concours d’elegance, scheduled for May 6-7.

Note, however, that Utilities are not road-going sport utility vehicles but a style of vintage wooden boat. Held at the Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas, the Keels & Wheels concours features some 200 collector cars on shore and as many as 100 classic wooden boats at the adjacent docks.

The event annually attracts more than 15,000 people during its weekend run, including 60 car and 20 boat judges who will decide the various class and best of show winners.

The 2017 event will be the 22nd annual Keels & Wheels, which raises funds for The Boys & Girls Harbor, which provides a home and safe environment for abandoned and abused children in the Houston area.
