Ain’t nothing going on but the rent

It’s sad how quiet things are at the Three Lions Garage right now.  Jack and Charlie started school this week while I was in Monterey for my annual pilgrimage to the holiest of holy sites for gear heads.  Consequently, the lights were off all weekend.  It wasn’t all bad, however, as I had the pleasure of seeing the Pebble Beach tour commence, preview the Gooding & Co auction (big thanks to Bart), Concourso Italiano, a great dinner with Jim, Payton and Catherine @ Tarpy’s, the Monterey Historics (just can’t get used to  the new name) where we watched a dozen $25 million PLUS Ferrari 250 GTOs race on the track, attend the RM and Gooding auctions and then join the Hagerty Dawn Patrol at the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance where we saw twenty-two (!) GTOs lined up along the coast (collectively worth more than one half BILLION dollars) and a stunning group of arguably the sexiest vehicles ever manufactured)


Could be a picture from Sebring in the early 60’s if there weren’t so many of them!

Over the past several weeks while Jack and Charlie were away diving on the Kona coast, I had the opportunity to change the hood hinges on the London Taxi and properly align the hood so it now closes effortlessly.  Now I’m just waiting for a replacement grill because I broke out the old one to get the stuck hood unlatched so I could perform my repairs.  I think it’s safe to consider this two steps forward and only one back considering how nicely the front panels are now aligned.

Watch for Monterey photos coming soon…
