Coming Soon! Late Summer 2017 Issue

Words by Fred Bliss

1948 Lancia Pininfarina

We visit Colton Amster, owner of Redline Restorations in Black Rock, Connecticut. Colton shares with us one of their latest restorations, a 1948 Lancia Pininfarina. This automobile has tremendous history: In 1948 it was a personal gift from Battista Pininfarina to Olympic Bicyclist Gino Bartali. Bartali was a hero during WWII, helping to save the lives of many Jews by traveling across several countries delivering newly forged identity documents in his bicycle frame and handlebars. In 2013 the car was bought as a barn find by a collector and restoration of the Lancia soon began. It is now completed and is headed to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.

 

Palmer Motorsports Park

If your idea of a great track driving experience involves elevation changes and wonderful cambers on corners that are meant to dive into deep, then our visit to Palmer Motorsports Park in Palmer Massachusetts, will definately pique your interest.

 

Oldtimer Restoration Center

Jim Cosgrove owns and runs Oldtimer Restoration Center in Harvard, Massachusetts. We visit Jim to discuss a Mercedes-Benz SL that is brought to life with a very stock looking V8 engine mated to a not-so-stock 6-speed gearbox.

This is a special issue of Mesh New England as we have partnered with The Boston Cup to showcase their 2017 Event, making this issue their official Program. Join us on September 24, 2017 around the Parkman Bandstand on the Common in Boston.
