Cunningham C-3 Joined Hemi V-8 and Italian Style
Just thought that all of you would like to see the wonderful article written by Tom Cotter that appeared in the N.Y. Times on March 12, 2011. It is a result of the wonderful “Cunningham Gathering” which took place in Palm Beach at Mar-a-Lago on January 23, 2011.
Eleven (11) of the twenty-five (25) original Cunningham C-3 Vignale cars were in attendance for a unique reunion. Hopefully, when the next Gathering takes place, they will all be there. Much credit for the event goes to John Barnes, Cavallino Classic and to Martin Gruss, owner of C-3 #5226 which was featured on the official event invitation.
