You can probably see David Love's car at the Monterey Historic races each year. I do not know with certainty because it has been so long since we attended Monterey. The image above was taken at Sears Point.
I believe it was around 1968 that a school chum of mine called excitedly and demanded that I come to his house immediately or I would be quite sorry. It turned out that an uncle was visiting and had driven his 1952 Aston Martin DB2 R. Wow! When I arrived a few minutes later, there it was with everything original. The aircraft seat belt had the huge leather pads to prevent the aluminum buckles from biting you. Nicks and scratches abounded. I do not recall the serial number, but it was a car that Carroll Shelby had driven when he was a factory driver for David Brown. This car also had California license plates.
Please excuse the stock photo of the Aston Martin. I did not even own a camera on the day I saw the DB2 R I mention above.
