Happily frazzled from the overwhelming interest in Singer, Rob humbly confided he's an artist, not a spokesperson. Since he's a well-known lead singer, etc., I replied he's now the successful front man of a new band. With a smile, he said Singer's planning to bring on someone to aid the public relations role. Stay tuned...

Great statistic from a great show: 100% of the 993s in the competition won a trophy. Of course, the RLer's spectacular 959 that earned an award Tuesday went home with 1 from Legends, too

I asked a similar question to Singer crew-member Dorian. He said almost all of their international orders include a donor car, which streamlines exporting the final product back out of the US.

About the only thing I forgot to ask Rob about: his previous mention of a Singer Speedster

Don't forget The Crazy Hats of Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance!

Being neither wealthy or even that particular, we did our hilarious best to fit in.
^^ An alternate reality for most spectators.
More Pebble Passion for Fashion, then back to the cars!















I saw SO many cravats & French scarves!

Our troops were on hand for last night's event, which saw plenty of folks arrive at the Monterey Jet Center in private aircraft, while some of the world's finest automakers showed off their latest and greatest products. Aston Martin was heavily represented, while a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, in Tuxedo Black and with French Racing Blue accents, captured the crowd's attention.

Meanwhile, the classic cars were numerous, with a Ferrari 275 GTB, a 1967 Ford GT40, Steve McQueen's old Jaguar XK-SS and more than a few Aston Martin DB5s. Photographer Drew Phillips was on hand to capture it all for an inside look.

incredible photos!
1) Whats the story with the E-Tracked bicycles from a few pages back? Motorcycle or bicycle?
2) The fashion pictures are a great photo editorial on the importance of cell phones to many
3) The men's fashion is good for some hard laughs

The E-Tracker's a "Vintage Electric Bicycle." Available in retro colors as delicious as a Dreamsicle with an electric range of 40 miles, it's by automotive artisan Michael Leeds, who lives in the Santa Cruz, CA, area. He's the designer behind the Blastolene brand, the air-cooled M1A1 Abrams-powered "Blastolene Special" which Jay Leno bought & renamed his "Tank Car," the similar "Indy Special," the PeterBilt-inspired "****'d Off Pete," etc.

I met him in Oct 2008 at a casual "Hot Rods By the Beach" car show near the Santa Cruz pier. He was with Big Bertha.

At the time, I didn't know it had a name. It didn't have any signs or 'sandwich-boards' with details, nor anyone standing next to it saying "This is mine, I made it, ask me about it." It was simply parked along other cars. All I knew was that it just had an amazingly powerful presence. However, the opposite was true of the designer: he did anything BUT make himself known. I was so amazed at this custom creation that was larger than life -- a car powered by a fire engine -- that I began thinking, how could I meet someone that might not be after attention but just loves the creative process of custom cars?

...I sank back into the crowd of onlookers, & began observing people instead of the creation. Eventually, I noticed one man doing the same thing. I slowly sauntered next to him & started a conversation. I hit gold: it was Michael Leeds, just taking in the joy that his work brings to like-hearted gearheads. Once he recognized our shared zeal, he shed his 'anonymous' persona & asked me to climb into the cockpit -- which was unlike anything I'd seen in my life.

Long story short: by the time we left, he had taken photographs of my wife & I behind Bertha's wheel, & proudly posed next to his masterpiece for a photo with me. I left wanting him to adopt me!!! (Still do.) There are so many amazing & inspiring people I've met in the 'car world' that I find myself saying, "I want to be him when I grow up," & Michael Leeds definitely qualifies.

Michael-- If you happen across this: BIG THANKS for your generosity & warmth that day. You & your artistic vision left a memory I'll never forget.

For more insight in this artist's abilities, check out his 'Motorcycle Art' subpage, the Blastolene 'Automotive Concepts' page, or just go to his homepage: MichaelLeedsStudio.com.

Likewise:
- OPB.org's 2005 "Blastolene Brothers" video
- Car and Driver's 2013 "The Brotherhood of the Blastolene: Mechanized Anarchy and the Men Behind It" article, with 122 photographs!

Usually if there's no photo credit ending a post then, yes, they're from my camera.

Looks like the same guy I saw ^^ at an Exclusive Porsche Zentrum reception, Pebble Beach Concours, etc. He was all over.

I should thank you for the reminder of fond times

The crazy thing: we're not even half-way through my pics yet

Speaking of awards, Past President Prescott Kelly judged our 993 as 1st In Class at a Concours that draws national PCA leadership from the east coast, etc.
He returned after the scoring to continue his compliments of our Speedster's craftsmanship, & to photograph her.

His enthusiasm & critique are especially treasured because of who he is: an expert & enthusiast respected throughout the industry. Just 3 days prior, he judged Porsches for the Carmel Concours. In 2011 he celebrated a victory with Rolf Sprenger (PAG Exclusive) & Detleve Von Platen (PCNA CEO) at the Pebble Beach Concours.
Besides hanging out with RL friends, Mr. Kelly's appraisal of 'Speedy' was a highlight
Bonus: crossing paths with him at the Pebble Beach Concours, where he surprised us by snapping an impromptu shot of my wife & I with his camera!
Great man, great memories

I'm out of order
Before I show more of my butt by reliving earning an award ^^ let me get back to media coverage of Wed night's patriotic Jet Center Party--
MotorAuthority.com's "McCall Motorworks Revival: Saving The Best For First" news article:
Originally Posted by MotorAuthority.com

Mixing airplanes with automobiles and plenty of high-end hob-mobbing, the McCall Motorworks Revival is the place to see and be seen in the days leading up to the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It's also a great place to see some of the hottest cars in the world, from both the past and the present.

Among the cars on display were the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and Vanquish Volante, both making their U.S. debuts, plus a selection of classic race cars and one of our personal favorites, the latest addition to the Singer 911 fold.

Painted in a muted representation of the Gulf Oil colors, the newest Singer 911 is making the rounds before heading off to its owner in Dubai later this year.

Check out the gallery for more of the sights from the Monterey Jet Center, and for even more automotive excellence, access our Pebble Beach hub.
Click the above link for their full gallery. Here are their gratuitous German booty shots

Looks like Magnus is talking to the person on his left, but Rob and Magnus know each other from POC racing days.

I think that's Freeman Thomas taking a look at the Singer cockpit. I caught him doing some judging on the lawn on sunday.
