The Big Beauty is finished! On August 15, our 1921 Heine-Velox made its first post-restoration appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. We almost didn't make it, though. The Concours requires that cars be driven into the show; there was a lot of confusion over directions and Tim ended up taking a rather long detour around Pebble Beach. As he finally approached the showgrounds, the left rear brake shoe locked up. Fortunately, Allen Schmidt was behind the car and informed Tim that he had put tools in it. They made the repair and the car made it to the show.
