Saturday at Amelia
Saturday, things started to get interesting. Got into the Shelby,Petty, and Garlitz discussion. Very cool.
Couldn't get near Shelby. My buddy Steve spoke to him Friday night at a social event of some sort. He said Caroll was real tired. He's getting up there in the years. Caroll had some great stories. Petty was very entertaining, Garlitz more straightforward but still interesting.
I walked around the RM auction which had some heavy hitter cars going for big bucks. Didn't see the results as of yet.
Did a couple of interviews with Porsche, Mercedes, and Spyker. Had a quick photoshoot with a blue Spyker.
Then it was on to the field. Saturday is a very cool in the afternoon when they start loading the field. You hear all these wonderful roars of Petty stock cars, Porsche 917, 66 Ford GT40, 427 and 289 Cobras, then you see a silent 30's Rolls slither by.
Ran into a bunch of friends and acquaintances. This was a huge event with over 250 cars on the field.
