  1. I realize this is a Sports car publication, but I feel that the early motorcycles should at least deserve some recognition. After all, this is the only the 2nd time they have ever been accepted at Pebble, and they were a huge crowd favorite. Great coverage otherwise.
    RF.

    1. Fair enough. Pebble is a mad scramble to get decent pictures of the 200+ cars before the crowds arrive. When finished, we then headed to the motorcycles and they were swamped with people, especially when Jay Leno was there. The images were not presentable enough to publish.

  2. Photo #3 seems to be mislabeled as a 1913 American Underslung Traveler Type 56 7 Passenger Touring. It looks like a later car with conventional springs. Seven people would be a tight fit. And if I’m wrong on all of that, it certainly isn’t a touring car. I’m guessing a Pierce Arrow coupe from around 1923.

  3. The red Pierce-Arrow is a 1909 48 hp 7 passenger touring owned by: Lynette and Vaughn Vartanian.
    You have it posted as a 1915 66hp owned by John Mozart.

    1. John Mozart does have the only other 1909 48SS 7 Passenger Touring. It was owned by Barbara and Matt Browning, restored in part by Eric Rosenau and a first in class at Pebble. Then Otis Chandler to John Mozart. Proud to say ours still carries it’s original upholstery, belly pan, spencer air pump, etc. The most authentically correct as judged by the Pierce-Arrow Society in 2013 and recipient of the “Bernard J. Weis Trophy” . One of only three “Brass” cars to receive the highest honor since it’s inception in 1961.That first year a 1910 36UU tied for the honor with Phil Hill’s 1931 Model 41 Pierce-Arrow.

  4. I bought the Tossie Alex #769 and restored it , drove it from Chicago to Hershey Pa, no one passed me, owned the car for many yrs and enjoyed it, worked on many XKSS cars, finally sold it back to UK and retired from business the next day.
