Up until the point that the Underground Racing twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (rumored to have 1900+whp) went end over end after making a 235mph pass, the main topic of conversation at this October’s event was the reports this may the the last Texas Mile event.  We initially ignored the story because everyone at the Texas Mile seemed to have “the inside story”, yet each “inside story” seemed to be different from the other.  However, we  have now been told, from a reliable source, that the rumor could easily be true – there is a chance that the owner of the airport, where the event has been held since 2003, may lose the property for whatever reason. BUT, do not worry – the evet will not die.  We have confirmation that there is a backup plan to move the mile to an unconfirmed location.

And yes, it is hard to believe, but the driver of the air born Gallardo (pictured below) is OK and walked away!

And onto the pictures…

Maybe it was the weather? Maybe it was the long Labor Day weekend? Maybe it was because I deemed Dallas the King of Texas Cars & Coffee last month? Whatever the reason, there was an impressive turnout in Houston this month.

The Only White Car To Win Pebble Beach Best Of Show: 1933 Delage D8S De Villars Roadster

MONTEREY, Calif. — A week of automobile heaven wrapped up after crowning the shocking (deserving) Best Of Show blue ribbon to a WHITE 1933 Delage D8S De Villars Roadster.

The Delage beat out more than 200 other spectacular classic cars, finally putting to rest the notion that a white car could not win at Pebble Beach.

“A white car has never won at Pebble Beach,” said the vehicle’s owner, Jim Patterson, of Louisville, Ky. The man of the hour, Mr. Patterson, purchased the Delage in 2007, at another Pebble Beach auction, for $3.74 million and then had it restored to its award winning condition.

$3.74 million is huge money for a car, but to put it into Monterey, California perspective: this year a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT long-wheelbase California Spider Competizione sold for $7.26 million.
