Thank You SpaceFitters

When Bill Woodman, CEO of SpaceFitters, attended a Klingberg Vintage Motorcar event in the fall of 2014, he had no idea Klingberg Family Centers would become such a big part of his life. Woodman said later that he “was touched by [Klingberg’s] work and wondered how [he] could help.” Woodman had bid on a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on a whim some time ago, and when he woke up the next morning, he had won the car. When the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival came around in 2015, he donated the car to the Klingberg Auto Restoration Program, where high-school...

1964 Pontiac GTO – Traditional Car Show June 2018 Best in Show

This 1964 Pontiac GTO has been winning awards since its current owner, Sal Rossitto, purchased it, so why stop now? Its pristine paint job and complete restoration combined with its already beautiful look made it a shoe in for our Traditional Best in Show trophy. Rossitto was looking at a car in Massachusetts when he came across the Pontiac GTO and immediately fell in love with it. It had been built in California, restored in Ohio, brought to Pennsylvania, and then Massachusetts where Rossitto found and purchased it. What really struck Rossitto is how pristine the car looked. In...

1932 Stutz LeBaron – Concours d’Elegance 2018 Best in Show

George Homan’s 1932 Stutz LeBaron was only $5,200 when it was first released, but that would be nearly $88,000 today. With such a sophisticated and rare car, we knew immediately it would win one of our Concours d’Elegance Best in Show trophies. This car is one of two 4-passenger speedsters built in 1932 and was exhibited by Stutz at the January 9, 1932, New York Auto Show. The original owner purchased this car at that show, and after changing hands a few times, has come to rest with Holman. There were only as many as 200 made, but they...

1932 Studebaker President – Concours d’Elegance 2018 Best in Show

Of course the 1932 Studebaker President was one of our Concours d’Elegance Best in Show winners. Only 2,399 of all models were produced, with only a handful of those being the same body style as George Vassos’s President. Of those, only two are left, so we are incredibly lucky to have had this one at our show. This particular car was initially sold to Archival Grove Kent of California in 1932. He retired to Mexico in 1944 and took the car with him. Another buyer from California bought it and brought it back to the States, only to have...

The Vintage Motorcar Series Starts Off Strong

The NEW Klingberg Motorcar Series of FIVE events for 2018 is more than halfway done. It’s time to pause and look at what has been accomplished and what is coming up in the fall of 2018. Our main goal for the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar events is to raise funds for our twenty programs serving children and families that have been affected by trauma. It is also important to us to have unique and interesting motorcar events orientated for the whole family. What began as an idea to show a selection of vintage cars 26 years ago at an anniversary...
