Bruce Meyer: We Envy This Man


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?
