It was really cold at 6:30 in the morning! I decided to actually put up the top on Scarlet and save my face from freezing. So off I went to Pierce College in Woodland Hills for the first Super Car Sunday of the new year. When I arrived the parking lot was sparsely filled and the overcast sky was keeping people away. With no special marque to bring out a crowd it was just going to be the real gearheads this morning.
Dex Kaytis’ yellow Bugeye was the only club Healey I saw but shortly after I finished parking Phil Caliva rolled up in his BJ8. We ended up parking next to Russ Thompson’s continual customer Gary who had three of his cars displayed: his 100-4, 1937 Mercedes Roadster with right-hand steering, and his Mercedes 190 convertible. After coffee and a breakfast burrito from the food truck, the College food court was closed for the holiday, we wandered around checking out the cars that had shown up.
As the sun rose in the sky the temperature rose and the three of us were able to shed our outer layers and talk about heading down to the Petersen Museum for the Shelby Cruise In.
