Today, I attended a golf tournament to benefit the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, whose Board of Directors I have just joined. Although the day was beastly hot – in the 90s – it was a great event and we raised a load of money. And it was a great way to spend the first day of summer!Aside from playing golf on one of Baltimore’s most exclusive private courses, the highlight of the day was the collection of antique and classic cars that the golfers drove to the event.
The cars ranged from a great 1960s Porsche Targa to a 1971 Fiat, purchased in Italy, driven through Europe and then shipped to the States. There was a 1931 three window Ford V8 in an incredible cherry red in near perfect condition. There were several old Mercedes Benzes, including this 1960’s sedan with a cream leather interior. Stunning.
But the car that stole my heart was this little 1960s Austin Healey 3000 MkII convertible in a brilliant red, just like a classic Chanel nail varnish. Just a sweet perfect car. It was a great day and a great way to celebrate the arrival of summer!
