Issue #3 AutoMobilia Resource Magazine
After a whirlwind of motoring events this Summer and Fall, it was nice to have a few weeks of down time during November & December to reflect on another great year on the road. I looked through our photos and found some interesting memories to share.
Below - A few of our vendor visitors of note:
Automobilia autograph collector? Many races and concours have announced “Grand Marshals” and featured guests, but you never know who (or when) you might run into your favorite personality. Hint: Be prepared and carry a Sharpie or favorite pen for signing. I like when something unusual is signed, such as a Helmet, Model or even a Teddy Bear. As with many signed items there is likely a story behind it. Joe Gearin shares this tale, “I have a necktie signed by Marino and Dario Franchitti. When I met them at a Mercedes-Benz party in Monterey, Marino spilled his wine on it, ruining the tie. They were good sports and both of them signed it, and laughed that it was an ugly tie anyways! Nice guys.”
