Bob, your gorgeous GTC has earned the right to chill out a bit. Melissa and I are coming finally at the last minute and will be staying at the Marriott. The Westin was full. We'll be tooling around in the Porsche Macan. Hope to see y'all around at some point.

Unhappy Sunday's tragedy

Class car rolls into lagoon at Hilton Head Island car show | The Island Packet

BY JOAN MCDONOUGH
jmcdonough@islandpacket.com

What surely began as a wonderful weekend for the owners of an award-winning classic car ended on a soggy note. One of the cars shown at the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance at Port Royal Plantation rolled into a lagoon behind it on Sunday.

The car that got away was a 1938 Packard 1605 Super Eight convertible sedan in the American Classics 1925-1948 class, according to the festival’s program and confirmed by a spokeswoman for the event. The car was almost completely submerged, except for a few inches of the top of the car. A professional diver and a tow truck company came to rescue the car from the water.

“This was most unfortunate,” Carolyn Vanagel, festival president said. “We feel badly for the owners whose car had just won best-of-class.”

Bystanders on the green said once the car started rolling, a couple of people tried to stop it, but they were no match for the weight of the vehicle. No information is currently available on how the car rolled away, the value of the vehicle or the estimated amount of damage.

Who was that with the Lancia Fulvia? I chatted for a bit, but don't recall his name on Fchat.

Talking GREAT EVENT!!!

As in previous years, we truly enjoyed the Saturday event.
We took our 1967 ALFA instead of the GTC.
Not by any means a show car, it is an everyday driver and shows some its 101,000 miles of life, including a badly worn driver's seat.
Parked right in the middle of a line of beautiful late model Ferraris it appeared to be the "ugly duckling".
But, I was surprised at how much attention it drew.
People looked the car over, asked all sorts of questions about it and I was even asked if I'd like to sell it.
What really surprised Harriet and I was the ALFA being selected to receive a "Crescent" award, with which I was not the least bit familiar.
And, check out the carrying capacity - everything in the photo was inside the car including Harriet and I.

In all, a really fine weekend - the organizers did their usual first-class job.
