liquid metal – America in the 1950s

Each year, Lou Natenshon puts together a show of important historical cars up in Highland Park, north of Chicago. Lou has deep roots in the car community and finds things tucked away. He’s been asking for one of the Lancias and this year the B20 paid a visit. It joined a number of Italian cars, including a 275 GTB that was actually still used for driving, a Fiat 500, and  some lovely vintage English (Aston, Rolls shooting brake, Alvis) an Arnolt Bristol, among others.

Many friends were also up there, including David Cooper (babysitting a 1927 Mercedes), Hillary Raab, with his original Ghibli and a Ferrari 250 Spider, made from some Scaglietti sketches he found in their archive. The B20 was placed between a Lamborghini Countach and a very nice unrestored Mercedes 300 SL. Skip McCabe (the B20 restoration papa) was there as well. It was a good fun time, spending a day in the shaded lawn, surrounded by neat cars and nice people in a very high quality, low hassle event.

  1. Congratulations on the new blog, I think it is an improvement. I realize the disappointment in loosing much material – but then we only have to add something new.
