Car: Hall-Scott

 

OWNERS: Dick and Marilde DeLuna

 

Location: Woodside, California

 

Proposed Class : Race Cars, Prewar

 

Representing the Ironstone Concours d' Elegance

 

Details: more than 100 years ago Colonel Albert J.Hall was designing a car for the 1917 Vanderbilt Cup Race .The car based on the Model A-7-A ,an aircraft engine of 9.9 Liters, 125 HP, redline @1200rpm and 420 ft- lbs of torque.

 

The all aluminum engine was to be married with an all aluminum body and set on a 1917 Rio chassis. With the cancellation of the 1917 race, due to world war one, and the need for the hall scott company to produce aircraft engines the project was shelved. We resurrected the construction in the middle 90s with the help of his nephew Jay Eitel and master builder Tom Batchelor.

 

The Hall-Scott has raced for many years at the Monterey Historics, Goodwood, The Wine Classics and many other venues also shown at Concorso’s such as Hillsborough Concourse, Pebble Beach concourse and featured at Ironstone Concours.

Car: 1974 BMW 2002tii

Owner: Dirk M. Van Doren

Location: Hobe Sound, FL

Proposed Classes: Preservation Class and Classic BMWs (1929-1991)

Details: The car was born on July 22, 1974 as Inka Oranje with 4-speed manual, sunroof, and dealer installed air conditioning. It spend most of its life in Seattle, WA. I purchased Oranje in 2013 from the first California owner as a result of his divorce. Maintenance involved was to improve reliability and fix some blemishes. The repairs were fine-tuning the Kuglefisher fuel injector, valves, muffler, windshield, body trim, battery, steel wheels, and radio with Bluetooth for hands free calling. Oranje is a numbers-matching survivor, not a trailer queen. I plan to keep enjoying 3 pedal BMW driving.

The car participated in the BMW CCA Foundation ICON - 50 years of the 2002 exhibit

Car: 1972 Triumph TR6

 

Owners: Bill and Gayle Michael

 

Location: St. Albans, WV

 

Proposed Class: Sports & GT Cars (1970-1980)


It was a warm summer day and my wife and I were sitting in our sunroom. I said, “Gayle, I've decided to have a mid-life crisis. What do you want me to get; another woman or a sports car”. Thankfully, she said “get a sports car”. Thus began a wonderful journey.

 

I found a local 1972 Triumph TR6. I drove it for about a year and then realized that it really needed to be restored. I disassembled the car and began with a bare frame. I had it powder coated I then began sand blasting and painting parts and began putting them back on the car. The engine and rolling chassis we to Mike Gassman of Gassman automotive in Waynesboro, VA. Mike rebuilt the engine with Richard Good's 3 carburetor setup, a GP2 cam, and 1.6:1 roller rockers as well as Herman van den Akker's 5 speed transmission conversion. The body work and paint was done by a local shop that specialized in restoring vintage cars. They painted it Inferno Red Pearl from Chrysler and that's been a big hit at the car shows. While all this was going on I was preparing everything else to go back on the car. I got some Miata seats and fabricated a black walnut Russian burl dash that I modified with an extra gauge. Certainly more work than this was done, such as competition springs, disc brake conversion and Wilwood brakes. About 12 years passed before the car was roadworthy.

 

The car has been a show winner ever since at both local and regional car shows.

Car: 1971 BMW 2002

Owner: Ali Javidan

Location: Sunnyvale, CA

Proposed Class: Classic BMWs (1929-1991)

Details: I have owned this car for 23 years and began a 3 year restoration in 2014. The goal was to build a car that is exciting to drive in the canyons and exciting to look at. The car is packed with lots of period correct authentic BMW Motorsport and Alpina bits, but this car came together as so much more than the sum of its parts. In 2018 this BMW was selected to be on display at the BMW CCA Foundation Museaum to be part of the ICON display. Later in the year this car was featured on Petrolicious and Speed Hunters, it also made the rounds during Monterey Car Week. It was featured at the Concourse on the Avenue, on display at the Jet Center party, and won its class at the Legends of the Autobahn event as well as the coveted "Peoples Choice" award. And my girls think its the coolest :)

This Porsche 914-6 was originally delivered in Europe and brought over to the USA in the late 70's. After arriving it was mostly used for weekend track days. After a small fender bender the car was parked in the late 70's where it sat partially disassembled for 38 years. Discovered parked in the back of a repair shop in Southern California I acquired the car and then set out on a 4 year full restoration. The car was completely taken apart and every component painstakingly restored and then reassembled. This numbers matching 20,000 kilometer vehicle looks and drives like new.

1937 Bugatti Type 57G “Tank”

Simeone Foundation Museum

Philadelphia, PA

For the Radnor Hunt Concours

Race cars Pre-War

 

This is the only surviving of three 57G’s and the only existing Bugatti sports car to win a major race, the 1937 Le Mans. In June 1936 the Automobile Club of France allowed the participation of “Grand Touring Cars” which was their definition of a sports cars. Bugatti designed a special racing type 57S engine with a lighter crankshaft and with an unusual streamlined all enveloping body which was called the 57G and dubbed the “Tank”. During WWII because of concerns the Germans might confiscate it, Bugatti removed it from the Molsheim Museum and hid it in Bordeaux. It was later restored at the factory and eventually imported to the USA in 1961 by Gene Cesari. It was owned by Philadelphia area collectors Jerry Sherman and Stephen Pitcairn and eventually acquired by the Museum through an international three way swap, and now holds a place of honor in the Museum’s Winner’s Circle. It has raced up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and won an award on the lawn at Pebble Beach.

1986 Mazda RX-7 GXL

Mark Smith

Kingsville Maryland

Cars of the '80s & '90s

This is my 1986 Mazda RX-7 GXL 5speed coupe, finished in Saphire Blue Metallic with a gray cloth interior. I was fortunate enough to purchase this vehicle from the original owner with just under 35,000 miles. The car was initially ordered as a "demo" car for Schaefer & Strohminger Mazda in Baltimore Maryland, that being said it's an extremely well optioned 1986 FC RX-7. Factory options include power sunroof, factory radio with equalizer, and push button adjustable sport suspension. Gary the original owner traded in his 1980 FB RX-7 for this car in late 1986. He drove it sparingly in the 33 years he owned it, his quaint waterfront home off the Chesapeake Bay housed this car for those 33 years. The Mazda was always kept right in the middle of the two car de-attached garage on his property never exposed to Maryland winter.  I bought this car from Gary in mid 2019. One of the first upgrades was installing later Mazda BBS RZ wheels on the RX-7. This really amplified the look of the vehicle, though its not the much sought after Turbo model aesthetically it's just right for me. Since then I've put an additional 2,000 miles on the car and was gearing up for Radwood Philadelphia 2020, which was something I genuinely was looking forward to since I purchased this RX-7. Nontheless here are the photos, I hope they do the car justice!

1935 Lincoln K 7 Passenger Sedan

Shawn Miller

Indianapolis, IN 

Preservation Class

"Nessie" is so named due to her longest term caretaker recently-Jeff Locke of Virginia, who unfortunately passed away a few years back. Jeff was an auto appraiser and helped form the Colionial Region of the CCCA. Not having a CCCA car, a local  club member sold him the car quite reasonably so he would have one-but it had not run in many years.  The car has a known history back to new having been delivered new to an industrialist in the Rochester NY Area. The car remained there until aquired by Jeff's friends father, who stored it but never worked on it.   After acquiring the car, Jeff had the car restored mechanically but left it as it was cosmetically, other than applying some sealer to keep the remaining paint in place.  Jeff and his wife Pat toured the car pretty extensively, and the car got this nickname-which is short for Lock Ness Monster-due to the massive size of the car and Jeff's last name. Upon Jeffs passing the car was sold to Walter Miller of Syracuse NY who appreciated unrestored cars. Walter passed away last year, and I purchased the car from his estate. I plan on doing nothing to the car other than installing a new set of tires and driving the hell out of it. It runs and drives quite well.

Have wanted an Isetta for many years, as the car that saved BMW.  Bought this car from the Tupelo Auto Museum at the Bonhams' sale of the Frank K. Spain collection in 2019. Chassis number 423609 is a matching numbers, US delivery car that features the "Bubble Window" and the Z-Bar trim. It needed more work than we anticipated including extensive bodywork. Having a blank canvas to work with, I was inspired by a Ford GT Heritage Edition on our annual trip to Scottsdale.  We finished a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration, using the the color codes from a 2006 Ford GT, this last Septmber.

1984 Toyota Pickup Xtra Cab (Back to the Future Tribute)

J.R. Guinto

Union City, California

Cars of the '80's & '90's (Presented by Radwood's)

I purchased this 1984 Toyota Xtracab from its original owner last August in Gold Country Ca. It was my original intention to keep things completely stock, but I couldn't fight the urge any longer and went BACK TO THE FUTURE with the build, following a complete teardown and rebuild of the engine. About 10 trips up and down the state of California was made to find the pickup and all of the period-correct parts that complement the BTTF tribute. The final piece of the puzzle and icing on the cake is the mirror-like paint job that was just completed last month.

Location: Reisterstown, MD

Proposed Class: Cars of the '80s & '90s

Details: This W124 wagon was located on eBay in Vernon, New York. The seller had purchased it for his collection and enjoyed it for a couple years and decided to part ways for a new adventure.

This car is completely original and was meticulously maintained by its 3 previous owners. It showcases the era that is argued to be Mercedes-Benz' best in terms of build quality and timeless design. It's been to numerous events in and around the Mid-Atlantic region and with 183,000 miles currently on the odometer, this utilitarian Teutonic machine is only just broken-in.

1953 Ford Ranch Wagon

Tom & Pat Cotter 

Davidson, NC 

Proposed class: At The Beach

I bought the car in 1972 when I was a high school senior because: 1.) the two-door wagon was so cool, and, 2.) it was cheap... $85.  I am the third owner.  It was originally destined for German export; the speedometer is in kilometers.  It was my surf wagon that I drove to college and my early jobs before being stored. I was always tempted to modify the wagon with a modern drivetrain, but restored it about 25 years ago with it's original six cylinder and three-speed overddrive trans.

The Z was driven sparingly by the first owner, then it was parked in a barn for a number of years. The Z then passed through a couple of Datsun enthusiasts hands before being bought by Tim Suddard of Classic Motorsports Magazine. "Classic Motorsports’ project mission was to refresh a very original barn car find. In fact, the Z still sports its original yellow paint. Suspension, interior, motor, and transmission were all refreshed/upgraded on the project. Amazingly, the history of this car is well preserved from the very first owner. It still has the Datsun warranty card, warranty book, owner’s manual, and radio manual.
Now maintained and driven, the Z delivers incredible performance.

Last September I was invited and displayed at the Hemmings 2019 Datsun Z 50th Anniversary Concours at Lake George September 2019. One of 16 Datsun/Nissan's to be invited.
The Z was also invited to the 2020 Lime Rock Park Historics, Sunday in The Park Concours for the Datsun 50th anniversary, however due to Covid I declined.
