The Past And The Future

by Mike –

I never tire of thinking about great events from the past and anticipating things to come. Here are some pictures from the recent Monterey Car Week and Hillsborough.

A Lamborghini Miura SV at Concorso Italiano.

I am going to a car show this weekend in Danville, California, although I am not showing a car, a friend and I will drive the Iso Grifo. It always draws a crowd in the parking lot.

I love the green color of this Maserati Ghibli at Concorso Italiano.

Two Bugattis at the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance. I think you all know that the Bizzarrini won the Owner’s Choice Award at this event – beating out even these two magnificent Bugattis.

I am planning to take both the Bizzarrini and the Iso Grifo to the Niello Concours at Serrano on October 2. It is a long drive for me but they will have a display for Iso and Bizzarrini cars so I cannot miss that.

I never tire of this view.
