illustratiing some of the finer points of vehicle evaluation as Kent Bain ties it all together with overview. Saturday also sees the special awards our shops have created delivered to join some awfully nice Tiffany glass on the awards table. Late Saturday evening we are all pleased to see job one completed with all the cars we have restored and or prepared for exhibit loaded in our trailers and ready for Sunday. All this one week after our involvement in Lime Rock’s Sunday in the Park event and Vintage fall festival weekend. Busy indeed, though it easily beats the alternative and late night shop ambience has remained professionally upbeat. Thanks to all so motivated to see this through graciously & properly.
Saturday’s tour and seminar come off nicely despite some threatening skies. Sunday awakens to clear skies and perfect temperatures as a superb field assembles to create an exhibit any lover of automobiles is sure to savor. On the field are many friends and machines we’ve had a hand in. Awards follow the day’s exhibition and we are more than pleased to see the enthusiastic reception our small group of unique special awards celebrating art and the automobile receive among those so recognized in the drive up presentation. It is all the more gratifying to both owners and our staff to see a few of our projects recognized among which we find.
- Peter Kalikow’s 250 GT Pinin Farina Cabriolet takes Best Sports Car
- Phil Liaconna’s superb MGPA Tickford garners or ARI created “Labor of Love” trophy
- Steve Novak’s BMW just completed and 1st time shown 3.0 CS Coupe wins its class
On to a few photos which tell more of the grace and ambience of this wonderful weekend spent communing with cars of distinction than words could ever do. Finally a huge thanks you to the aforementioned founders, MC Donald Osgood, Miles, Mariann and all who work so hard make it all work seamlessly with a special casual elegance.
