    The Monterey of Muscle Cars! Have attended a couple of times - cool rare stuff in all of the food groups on display. Dana Mecum's GT40 Roadster, among them ...

    This Sunday is the final Fuelfed Winnetka event and next Sunday the 5th of November is the last Lake Forest Fuelfed event.

    A few more photos of Meadowdale from 1960. The white structure is infact from Meadowdale. Nice looking old track that did have it's share of accidents, but in the end ran out of money and closed in 1969.

    Some more Meadowdale photos from the 1963 and 1964 USAC and the final results from the 1st USAC 1959 Formula Libre race held at Meadowdale. That car in the crash photo above is a Lister Jaguar with a Chevrolet motor, not the Maserati. This track was overshadowed by the great Road America track in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin..

    Thanks for sharing. O'Shea's nephew used to be a regular at Ricardo's in the 80s. Great stories about racing, especially the MB 300.

    Yes nothing special today. Only went because it was the last concours for them this year. Kind of wondering if the MCACN event in Rosemont will be good. I think I will go for the first time as it looks interesting. Anything that says muscle car makes me normally run, but this show looks higher quality.
