Received the latest Glenmoor Gathering email update and had to share. What a spectacular car and a fantastic event in our back yard.
One of the highlighted features of the 2012 Gathering will be early supercharged automobiles. Here’s a special example—a 1929 Stutz type MC with custom coachwork by Lancefield. This one-of-a-kind Stutz is owned by noted collector Richard Mitchell of Montgomery, Texas. Among the famous marques equipped with superchargers were American automobiles such as Auburn, Cord, Graham and Duesenberg as well as foreign makes such as Bentley, Mercedes-Benz and Alfa-Romeo.
In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and European automobiles and motorcyles will be on the show field. There will be a display of Allard automobiles, “micro cars,” steam-powered cars and “The Trans Atlantics”—automobiles with European and U. K. coachwork and American engines.
On Friday afternoon, there’ll be two seminars. The first will be an automotive design seminar moderated by artist Peter Maier with automotive designers Bill Porter and Larry Turk. It will be followed by “How to Buy a Collector Car” with Wayne Carini of “Chasing Classic Cars” and collector car expert Ralph Marano.
Other weekend activities include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, Classic Motorcars Collector Car Auction, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges’ program and other family activities. During the concours, automotive art by a variety of artists will be on display and for sale. Several automotive authors will also be in attendance to sell and autograph their books.
On Sunday, there will again be a separate, special display on the club’s front lawn of “World Class Performance Cars,” including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Vipers and Porsches.
