    I, Malcolm Welford, am delighted to advise that the Colorado Grand was a big success for FIVA and in fact Miles Morris (my business partner and co-Ambassador in Connecticut) presented the plaque to the car most deserving for its originality. In the end I did not get an entry on the rally this year and then I had a conflicting appointment with US homeland security for my global entry which I could not miss, so Miles did the honours for me. Attached is a photo of Miles presenting the award to David Brynan (with beard), with CO Grand board director Tom Horan in the picture too. The organisers made a dummy Colorado number plate too, which Miles is holding, which was a lovely touch. The history of the car is fabulous: 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce (750F) - an early short-wheelbase model in Celeste Blue that was delivered new to the US.The first owner was a Mr. David Elder, an electrician from Rochester, New York. He raced the car from 1958 through 1962 at tracks such as Watkins Glen, Thompson, Dunkirk, Marlboro, Giant’s Despair, and Put-in-Bay. The car still has its race programs and entry plaques from most of its races, as well as the original side pipe, roll bar, Brooklands screen fitted. His race results can be found [...]
    U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today (22-9-2016) introduced legislation to help preserve the legacy of American automobiles and motorcycles and the vital role they play in American culture and history. The National Historic Vehicle Register Act will authorize the Department of Interior to establish a federal register of historic vehicles to document and preserve records of American automotive and motorcycle history. “Few engineering innovations have had the same impact on American society as the automobile, and it is important for us to preserve the stories of vehicles that have played a critical role in American history,” said Senator Peters. “This legislation will ensure records of the historic vehicles will be available to inspire the next generation of automotive engineers and celebrate the accomplishments of the automotive industry that continues to be a vital part of our economy in Michigan and the United States. I am proud to work with the Historic Vehicle Association, the FIVA representative in the US and Canada, and the American Motorcyclist Association to support the preservation of America’s rich and unique automotive history.”
