Huntley Tarleton has always been a “car guy.” “My dad got me into cars when I was a teenager,” he said.
Tarleton started running the Motoring Midway as part of the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance in 2007.
Father-in-law Charles Mistele, Tarleton and his son Caldwell, have since made the festival a family event.
The Motoring Midway
In 2007, Tarleton took over the Quest for Style and Speed, which was a hodgepodge of different vehicles at the time.
“I started focusing really on the vehicles and exhibits,” he said. Under Tarleton’s leadership, the Quest for Style and Speed was renamed the Motoring Midway, and it started offering exhibits meant to appeal to more people.
