"Heidi" - 1958 Porsche 356A Sunroof Coupe

Owned By William Noroski Of Syracuse, NY

This is a "preserved" automoble. Heidi has not been restored. Heidi has been driven over 44,000 miles and has been carefully maintained in near new condition by W. Noroski during the past 50 years. The car has all the original body parts with only minimal paint work being performed (ie only bumpers, front fenders, and hood have been refinished for cosmetic reasons.) She wears the original paint and factory finish on her roof, doors and rear panels. Wheels are original factory applied color and paint. Even the factory applied asphaltic undercoating is intact after 54 years. The car has been driven in over 24 states and in Canada. The sunroof option is rare. Exact records are not known, but best estimates from Stuttart show that only about 50 356A Coupes were equipped that way.

1932 Marmon Sixteen

Comments from Owners John and George Bradley:
The Bradley's India Green 1932 Marmon Sixteen sedan was owned by Walter Hughes, a Marmon dealer in Dansville, New York, who kept it as his own until 1948. That year he died, and his widow sold the car to John Bradley. John drove the Marmon to attend the first Watkins Glen Grand Prix later that same year. He continued to drive the car until 1954, when he was forced to put it into storage because he could not find replacement tires. It remained in storage until 1995, when he and his son George embarked on a ten-year restoration project. Since completion, the Marmon has won numerous awards, including best in class at the Boca Raton Concours and the 100 Cars of Radnor, the Judge's Choice at the 2009 Dayton Concours, and Best of Show and People's Choice at the 2011 Chemung Canal Concours.

It does have four wheel disc brakes and coil-over suspension in front. It has a V8 289 motor and automatic trans. The top is power with glass rear window. The interior has been fully restored to original condition.

1966 Jaguar E-Type Coupe

1966 Jaguar E-Type Coupe

Serial # 1E31858 came off the assembly line on September 22, 1965, and was delivered to its original owner in December of that year by Jaguar Cleveland in Mayfield, OH. Then, as now, it wore dark green paint with a suede green interior. It is a numbers- matching car, retaining its original engine and gearbox from new.

The current owners purchased the Jaguar in May, 1978. Since that time it has been driven through at least thirteen states, in blazing heat, rain, and snow. It has traveled Skyline Drive in Virginia, Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina, and I-90 through Chicago. It is truly a product of the 1960s, most at home on two-lane country roads. Modifications to enhance driving include a more efficient cooling fan, uprated brakes, and improved final drive ratio for highway speeds.

Showing the wear and tear of 40 years, in 2005 the Jag was stripped to bare metal and repainted, interior recovered, and chrome replated. This was all accomplished during one winter season, so the following summer it was ready to once again bring us to Watkins Glen for our annual trek to the Grand Prix Festival.
