I assume that’s a Pursang Bugatti 35B. (The originals have all died because of their dodgey roller-bearing crankshafts.) The Pursang restorations have solid bearing cranks, which enable them to still be raced with some degree of reliability.

Brilliant!

People’s Choice 1946 #AlfaRomeo 6C 2500 Pininfarina Cabriolet Speciale owned by Christopher Ohrstrom – The Plains, VA This once-lost 1946 Pininfarina roadster body is mounted on a 1942 war-time Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 chassis, serial number 915.169. The car was originally constructed under the patronage of Giuliana Tortoli Cuccioli of Milan, a perfume designer who paid close to 5 million period liras for it. The Alfa Romeo was once used in a defiant display outside the Paris Auto Show held in the Grand Palais in 1946, following a bar against Italy, which was not a member of the newly formed U.N. The car was also the winner of the Grand Prix d’Honneur of the 29th annual Concours d’Elegance Monte Carlo in 1947. Chassis number 915.169 was later sold to Austin Motorworks and influenced the design of the A-90 Atlantic and later Austin-Healeys. This car was meticulously restored to its original condition when first displayed in 1946. Original colour samples were taken from every area and matched precisely. This Alfa Romeo is a beautiful example of a significant part of automotive history. @cobblebeach #peoplechoice ift.tt/2LexOGz See MoreSee Less

National Automotive Heritage Award 1963 #Chevrolet #Corvette – Hugh Welsford, Mississauga, ON This meticulously frame-off-restored 1963 split-window coupe was completed in 2015. It was one of 2,600 fuel-injected cars produced that model year, and rolled off the assembly line early into the first week of production in September 1962. This Corvette was one of the first exported-to-Canada cars delivered to GM Corporate office, and is very likely a ‘brass hat’ car. The car was awarded an NCRS Regional Top Flight designation in 2016. @cobblebeach #winner ift.tt/2rNdfbc See MoreSee Less

Poetry in Motion Award #Winner 1957 #Lincoln Continental Mark II owned by John Csiki, Keswick, ON The elegant sobriety of the 1956 and 1957 Mark II stood out as a beacon of good taste in the era of growing tailfins and massive chrome. It took twice the man-hours put into a standard Lincoln’s production to complete, and was available with just one option, air conditioning. It was the most expensive motorcar in America since the Duesenberg, and cost $2,000 more than the most expensive Cadillac. Ford still lost thousands on every Mark II. The secret of the Mark II lay in the way it was built, with no expense spared on materials or manufacture. America’s latest classic car proved a costly indulgence; only 3,012 were built. @cobblebeach ift.tt/2KYN4Hu See MoreSee Less
