Sad news on loosing Sir Stirling Moss
http://spicercollectorcars.com/2017/06/23/stirling-moss-reunited-mercedes-300-slr/

The link is to an article I wrote about his career.

One of my favorite memories was in a photo/memorabilia tent during car week at Monterey. He and Phil Hill happened to shown up and before anyone noticed these two icons together the three of us enjoyed old racing photos, I listened as they discussed the glory days. The paparazzi saw them together and I was quickly ushered out of the way for photos but for a few moments I was able to enjoy their reminiscing.

He was a regular at Pebble Beach car week. It was exiting watching him with the SLR he campaigned in 1955 as well as meeting him after the 2016 Concor tour finishing in downtown Carmel.

Extraordinary racing icon. Rest in peace 🙏

The Ferrari 250 GTO made from 1962-64 is one of the greatest cars of all time. The styling married with a V12 makes this car a standout. Here is a picture I took at Pebble Beach on the 18th green.

Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is spotlighting the Carrera Panamericana race cars for one of their classes in 2020. It was a border-to-border racing event, 2,178 miles on the Mexican Pan-America Highway (1950 - 1954). It ended due to safety. Speed technology was advancing much faster than safety in those years and it became very dangerous. Can’t wait to see what they have on display in August.

Checked out the World of Speed museum in Wilsonville - Mustang exhibit. Interesting to see the evolution of these cars.

Went by “The Luxury Collection Los Gatos” dealership, they carry Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Maclaren. I love the new styling on the Bentley GT coupe, it’s a little longer and the front grille is much wider. The Aston Martin DB11 was nice too 😎
