St Michaels Concours d'Elegance Sept 30th

Hey folks,

The St Michaels concours d'elegance is coming up in 2 short weekends. It will be a great weekend for car spotting, if you like stuff made before jfk made it to the presidency, that is.

The new hitch is that last year saw the introduction of post war sports cars. That broadened the appeal and we had some very nice examples on the grass.

This year the Admiral will be bringing TLBC out for a dance. IF you are in the mid atlantic area and you are an automotive enthusiast, this should be a bucket list show. Not to mention the gorgeous wooden boats that will be on display.

St Michaels is beautiful this time of year and a great place to bring the family out to.

Plus, TLBC will be out there!

I shall attend! i think i have been to every one except the first one and they do not disappoint. If you think you are not interested in these cars, take a chance. I think you will be. We are talking cars of the highest level.

Dear Ray,

Thanks for the shots of the little blue car. I forgot to bring my camera but it seems like most everyone else had one. The day was perfect, light breeze, comfortable humidity and temp right at 70. Lots of friendly people who were polite enough to ask more about TLBC, it is a good car show day when I have no voice left at the end of the day. TLBC was given the 1st in Class of the Italian Automobile Class.

Best regards,

Robert

Dear Ed,

Thank you. I think the judges did a fine job, and thanks also go to BryanP and Michael Bayer for helping David Carte offload the cars and cleaning the dust off TLBC. I arrived after all the hard work was finished and then I was able to do the fun part which was talking about the car to any and all who expressed any interest.

Best regards,

Robert

Hey admiral, just happened across this pic of me with Armando Garcia Cifuentes at amelia island. Chilling in the ritz carlton watching the F1 race. Reminded me of our talk at st michaels yesterday. I will look up his contact info if you are still interested. Most may not recognize him, but he ran his ferrari off the road in the 1959 cuban grand prix and took out 7 spectators. this was also the race where fangio was kidnapped by the reds!

not to hijack from the St. Michael's event, but I had to comment on Ed's picture of Cifuentes. He drove 500 TRC 0690MDTR in the '58 Cuba Grand prix. Very early in the race he hit an oil spill left by a Porsche (Mieres) that had burst an oil line. Cifuentes spun off the course at an estimated 100mph, slicing thru several rows of totally unprotected spectators (which was pretty normal back then). Seven were killed and aout 40 injured.

Cifuentes was also badly injured - a parked construction vehicle brought his car to an abrupt halt. Cifuentes' cuban team mate, Batista, driving 0698MDTR (the Marriott car that was just posted in the 500 Mondial thread, sitting in front of our house last week), pulled off the circuit, and placed his injured team mate on the hood of 0698 and drove him to the hospital. Attached are pics of 0690 after the crash, and the famous shot of Cifuentes on the hood of Batista's 0698 leaving for the hospital; not quite the elaborate medical arrangements the FIA has today . . . .

The Cuban-driven cars back then were yellow w/ black stripe.

not a problem. The drivers' uniform back then was pretty typical. Fire? just jump out of the car; it's not like you're wearing a seatbelt! Our 500 Mondial did not come w/ seatbelts.

Here's a line-up from '56; Hawthorn, Fangio, De Portago, Castellotti, Collins.
