Preparing our 1958 Aston Martin DBR1 for Amelia Island
Kevin Kelly, “Shiny Bob” Goldstein and our team of ace volunteers are busy preparing our 1958 Aston Martin DBR1 for an extremely rare appearance outside of the museum at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida from March 13-15. The car is kept in such great shape and is ready to go on short notice, so all she needed was a check-up, a light shine, and off she goes.
We are very proud that the car has received a special invitation to this prestigious event. This year’s honoree is Sir Stirling Moss, as well as the famous racing cars from his storied career. We’re told that Sir Stirling Moss specifically requested that our car be present, as he has not been reunited with it in many years. Sir Stirling Moss drove our car, chassis #DBR1/3, on several occasions including his famous win in the 1958 Nurburgring 1000KM, as well at the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans. Dr. Simeone and Kevin Kelly will attend the event along with the car. We’ll try our best to get some pictures for everyone to see, so please stay tuned for more updates!
Kevin checks over the engine. It doesn't need much.
Here is a rarely-seen view from above.
Here is "Shiny Bob" Goldstein doing his thing.
2.99 liters and 6-cylinders. An absolute symphony of anger and power.
Shiny Bob, hard at work.
This picture could've been taken in 1960 and you'd never know the difference.
Moss, Clark, Brabham, Shelby, Fairman all sat here. Perhaps you've heard of them.
