‘When I’m 64…': Pebble Beach Concours shows it’s got muscle

By From page B1 | August 22, 2014

Anyone would agree that Ferrari is a muscle car and this year’s 64th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance best of show winner was a 1954 Ferrari 375 MM owned by former Microsoft president Jon Shirley of Medina, Wash. Shirley has owned the car since 1995 and it has gone through two restorations, an initial two-year restoration on acquisition where he converted the car back to a coupe from a convertible as it was originally purchased by Italian film director Roberto Rossellini and a more recent restoration necessary from years of road rallies. It was only the sixth time that a post war car has won best of show in the Concours history, and as usual there were some spectacular cars there this year for the 15,000 plus spectators to enjoy.
