St. Petersburg Motor Classic
On February 5, ten members of the club caravanned from Sarasota to St. Petersburg, FL for the above car show hosted by the St. Pete Yacht Club in the city park next to their club. This appears to be a reimagining of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club Vintage Motor Classic, which heretofore was held annually in November for some 20 years before being rudely interrupted by the pandemic. The featured marque this year was the Morgan. The large number of spectators and perfect weather made for a great day.
This venue is a great place to have a car show. The park is blessed by large shade trees and there are many restaurants with differing cuisines within easy walking distance. And, if for some reason, you tire looking at the variety of cars, motorcycles and boats (this year there were 250 entries), there are always the yachts in the harbor to dream of owning.
Congratulations to SBCC member Bill Isenstein who won a trophy for Best Presentation in class with his 1973 TR6.
