Heine-Velox Update 3

by Nancy DeWitt

Well, our 1921 Heine-Velox Sporting Victoria is heading to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance next week. Allan Schmidt of Horseless Carriage Restoration in Escondido, CA has worked his magic on the big beastie and will be trailering it north for us. Thanks, Allan!

Because the Heine-Velox is such a big, imposing car, we selected a dark paint color rather than stay with the lighter color it had been painted several decades ago. We're really looking forward to seeing this legendary car in person.

If you are attending the Concours, please stop by and say hello. We'll be happy to tell you more about the Heine-Velox and our museum. If you aren't going to Pebble Beach, we will be showing the car at the Kirkland Concours d'Elegance on September 12. After that, it's North to Alaska if you want to see it!

  1. we are very excited about getting this car up here and on display, it will be a very nice addition for our museum. when you see this car you will be impressed with all the inovations that Mr Heine came up with, including all of his ideas for baggage storage. you will enjoy seeing this car driving around the grounds and in town.
    watch for the arrival of it in the near future. aaawwww, another one to study and play with.....
