Lost Legend at Keeneland
One of my favorite classes at the Keeneland Concours d'Elegace each year is the Lost Legends. Here they collect a number of great classics which are no longer with us. This year's selections included one of the most infamous models of all time, a 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Convertible. This one featured a 180 horse power turbocharged engine.
Other lost treasures included this second owner 1958 Pontiac Star Chief powered by a 370 cubic inch 285 horse power V8 engine, a 1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 which was Olds' top selling model for over 20 years, a 1959 Nash Metropolitan Coupe which has only 17,500 original miles on the clock, a 1952 Hudson Hornet which had a 308 cubic inch side valve six cylinder engine and was considered by many automotive writers as the finest road car of its time, and a 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe from the last full year of production before World War II.
