Once in a while, we are tipped off to a really special automotive find that just tickles us pink. This is one of those finds. A few years ago, Gary Faules wrote about San Francisco’s racing history. Sadly, a server crash since then lost many of the images from those stories and I haven’t gotten around to finding them at the San Francisco archives again. The car you see above is a Baby Vanderbilt racer from the Pan-Pacific International Exposition in 1915.
Californian Tom Keeble has just completed a full restoration on the motorcycle engine powered racer, contacted us recently to share the story.
