Either I really love cars or I am really messed up. Of course, it’s probably both.
Below are four photos of a car that, once again, literally brought me to tears. This car was not part of the Elegance at Hershey 2019 per se, but was shown at the Cars and Coffee event the day before. It is shown here as one of the 11 cars in my recently unveiled Ultimate Garage 2.0. Here is a beautiful small block Iso Grifo:
My wonderful wife and I met someone who had a car in the Elegance; Dr. Chris (first name) brought his big-block Iso Grifo. I don’t think I had ever seen one in person before and then I saw two in two days. Remember that only 412 Iso Grifos were produced.
We had a great time at the Elegance and I can write that our experience exceeded our expectations. I was disappointed when a beautiful 1934 Packard finished second in the judges voting for Best of Show, but eight Packards were among the 75 cars. As has been our experience, people at this car event were, almost without exception, friendly and polite. I find more camaraderie among strangers at car events than among co-workers at every place I’ve worked and that includes major league baseball teams with the exception of one of my consulting clients.
I will show more pictures and write more about Hershey in the coming days.
