Paramount Ranch April 16, 2005
The Fabulous-50s racers Spring gathering and
Concours d'Provenance
(This Page)
(Annotations to be added as time AND MEMORY permit)
The Concours d'Provenance concept was originated to bring together people and cars with histories of attendance at racing events that took place at Paramount Ranch during its short existence.

And here they come...

Led appropriately by the Pre-War MG NP Magnette of Mike Jacobsen, whose father Lars
entered the car at Paramount Ranch. Davey Jordan is in a good position
to enjoy the sights and sounds of the arriving vehicles.

Mike Jacobsen a little closer, witnessed by Ruth Levy and (I've forgotten).

A little inspection of the MG N-type's front suspension.

"Topper" directed traffic and checked-in the exhibits. I was told this C-tpe Jaguar
is a reproduction. You can see an original C-type's mis-adventures at Paramount Ranch,
among Tom Cardin's photos from the era.

An Arnolt-MG. Rare.

One sold at auction in 2014, $110,000

A little more Arnolt action. Bill Watkins' Arnolt-Bristol

"Topper" and a racy Sprite

Mercedes 300SL and a glimpse of some of the lineup

MG TF 1500 with quite a atory

More of the lineup

The Corvette had a story, on FotoTime. "Topper" with clipboard, Kurt's Doretti in the background.

I believe this should settle the spelling of "OLD YELLER",
although there are those who hold otherwise

Tam McPartland in the ball cap, (I've forgotten) with umbrella, William Edgar to her left.

Anton and the Perfect FIAT 8V

The 8V and some of Tam's Daimler SP250.
And at the end of the day you gan drive your treasure home...
