Los Gatos Car Guys Meeting Recap – Next Event September 9th

August 12th, 2014

The Monthly car show and luncheon of the Car Guys of Los Gatos was a well attended event with over 45 members and guests officially in attendance.

Key cars on display included an imposing 1929 Lincoln by Mel Basuini, Jim LaMaack’s immaculate 56 Thunderbird, Rubin Jurman’s  ”Old World Elegance Personified” 54 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith, Clark Rodgers 52 Citroen Traction Avant 11B, Dennis and Sue Byron’s recently re-freshed 62 Studebaker Champ and Austin Kilborn’s stylish 72 Jaguar EType 2+2.

New members Ken and Kenny Rodrigues brought a “looks fast just sitting there” 74 911 Carrera which had a Canepa tuned suspension and RS engine power plant and which was a particularly nice counterpoint to Forrest Straight’s hugely popular, muscular & original Shelby Cobra 427, Chassis # CSX 3183.

During lunch the members and guests were treated to a fine meal from the staff of Aldo’s accompanied by a much too brief talk by Luke Rizzuto on his recent 19,000 mile jaunt around the world in a 1928 Plymouth.  I counted more than 10 countries Luke toured and would love to have heard more of his exploits which included the loss of a passport while traveling through Russia.

All in all this was a memorable event for all in attendance.  I’ve included a few pictures with more available on the Racers Drive Facebook page.

The Car Guys of Los Gatos meets at Aldo’s Ristorante & Bar the second Tuesday of each month with the next meet-up scheduled for September 9th.  We do ask the members and their guests to remember that ours is a “commercial free” zone and our events are not supposed to be about business but supposed to be about the cars and enjoying each others company over a nice lunch.
