PRDA At The McLaren 40th Anniversary Party

[Livonia,MI] It was a toasty warm day in Michigan when two guys with a mission showed up at the 40th Anniversary Party for McLaren Performance.

The poor webmaster had a tough time keeping up with the energetic Oscar Koveleski as he darted from person to person, display to display, display to person to display, to... well, you get the picture. Oscar is a human dynamo.

The cars on display were exceptional. From McLaren Can Am cars right out of the late 1960's to the early 1970's, to Johnny Rutherford's 1974 Indy 500 winning car, to David Hobbs' BMW race cars, and all the other McLarenized wonders, this was among the best shows a motorsports enthusiast could hope to attend.

The people were top notch, and among the "royalty" were such names as Johnny Rutherford, David Hobbs, Bobby Rahal, Jack Deren, and some guy named Oscar Something...

Johnny, David and Bobby all became honorary members of the PRDA, and Bobby agreed to take David Letterman his honorary membership as well. In addition to the afore mentioned new members, there were a dozen other new members initiated into the elite ranks of the PRDA.

If McLaren ever has another 40th Anniversary party I HIGHLY recommend you make it a point to attend.

Many pictures to be posted in the coming days.
