The most fascinating stories often concern the quest for that very special car in that very hidden place. Dr. Simeone discussed how certain iconic cars were found in decades past. Cars like the iconic Alfa Romeo 2900 A roadster, Stutz Blackhawk LeMans Type Speedster, MG K-3 Magnette, and the Cobra Daytona Coupe whose mysterious past puzzled enthusiasts for decades. The famous Daytona Coupe gained its early glory when driven by legendary racer Dave MacDonald. Dave’s son Rich was on hand to tell about his dad’s adventures in the 1960s.
