This was a special year for Texas 1000 in many ways. We had wonderful cars, starting with Martin Gruss’s 1933 Alfa Romeo Castagna-bodied 1750 Gran Sport, Miles Collier’s 1953 Cunningham C-3 Coupe, Jim Earsley’s 1953 Jaguar XK-120, George Baron’s 1958 Alfa Giulietta Sprint Veloce and Tem McElroy’s 1963 Porsche 356 Cabriolet.
In 1991, writer/racer Rich Taylor and his wife, artist/photographer Jean Constantine, drove a Lancia on Italy’s Mille Miglia Storica to do an article for Town & Country magazine. When they returned, they decided to organize a similar vintage sports car rally in America.
