La Carrera Fiesta Get-Together

dscf95711.JPG

About 50 of us fellow La Carrera Panamericana nuts got together in Pasadena California for a fiesta at Ron Lee’s home where we lied about how fast we go, how cool our cars are and how big our… Engines are. Our host Ron Lee and his wife were extremely gracious and the grog and ale were as good as it gets. Besides drivers, navigators, fans and some directors, we were honored by the presence of Eduardo Leon the President of La Carrera Panamericana.

Ron has an incredible car collection many of which he built himself to his impeccable standards. As the evening continued not only did we get to enjoy each other’s stories and company and but we also got to enjoy the sounds and smell as Ron revved up a few of his awesome sounding toys. The Philharmonic Orchestra doesn’t hold a candle up to the sounds we enjoyed!

There is already talk of another La Carrera Fiesta at Laguna Seca on the same weekend of the Monterey Historics. Do I hear Lucky asking to be uncaged?

    Thank you for the great pictures!
    I have seen many of Ron’s cars at local car shows, but I did not realize how extensive his collection is.
    I lust for each one.

    I am searching for a long-lost cousin. His name is Ron Lee (or Ronald or Ronnie as we all called him). When his folks (my uncle and aunt) divorced, we lost all contact.

    Just wondering if the Ron Lee mentioned in this article could be him….

    Please send my email to Mr. Lee to have him contact me. Thank you!
