We are planning on having a "Concours d' Sport" on Saturday afternoon. That is the same as a Concours d' Elegance, but the "Sport is for racing boats and cars only.

The old race boats we hope to have....The Cigarette (Formula 233), Ghost Rider (If it doesn't go to England), Mona Lou, Michelob Light, Benihana, Needle Nose, Great Adventure and many more that we can find and invite

Glad this came back to the surface! Very good thread!

So anyone know what came of the old WD40/Dyno-Mite Bertram that was in Verplanke?


Oh and as noted in the old school section, I looked at Gentry's aluminum Cougar Superboat last weekend. It's behind a strip joint in Long Beach.

Any more pics? If you have a larger one of this one, I'd appreciate you e-mailing it to me
