Not to be confused with Bruce Meyers, the man who invented the dune buggy, Bruce Meyer is one of the foremost collectors of classic automobiles, as well as a custodian of American hot rods. So much so that Pete Chapouris of the So-Cal Speed Shop refers to him as "his patron." A former chair of the Petersen Automotive Museum, the cars he's currently rotated in his home garage are a 1929 Duesenberg Murphy convertible coupe built for former Chicago Tribune honcho Col. Robert McCormick; Clark Gable's '56 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc; and two significant LeMans racers: the first 'Vette ever to run there (a 1960), and a class-winning 1961 250GT Ferrari SWB Berlinetta. Can we come over for beers, Bruce?
