The McCall Motorworks Revival 2019 was held Wednesday, August 14th at the Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, California. Gordon McCall’s 28th annual Monterey Car Week event and charitable fundraiser provided guests with a taste of everything — classic cars and motorcycles, private and military aircraft, food and wine, coupled with the latest offerings from top luxury brands and automakers.
Notable and interesting cars at the McCall Motorworks Revival 2019 included the ex-Scuderia Ferrari and Ecurie Nationale Belge 1956 Ferrari 290 MM Spider Scaglietti s/n 0606; ex-Team Camoradi Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage; McLaren F1 GTR; Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and a BMW 320 Turbo campaigned in the IMSA GTX series. As one of two lightweight BMW 320 Turbos ever built, this car debuted in 1978 in FIA Group 5 competition before being sold to Jim Busby Racing in California for the 1979 IMSA GTX season. Other standouts included an exacting replica of the 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe built on an original Bugatti Type 57 chassis using the same production methods and materials as the original car.
Charity is a major focus of the McCall Motorworks event, with the California Highway Patrol’s 11-99 Foundation as the beneficiary of Gordon’s year-long campaigning and vision for the annual bash. Annually, the generosity of this group has resulted in a six-figure total for the California Highway Patrol 11-99 charity.
“The 28th Annual McCall’s Motorworks Revival was one of the most memorable we’ve ever hosted,” said Gordon McCall, founder of the McCall’s Motorworks Revival. “The California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation had a hugely successful night and variety of automobiles and aircraft, along with these unique displays have made 2019 one of our most successful events to date. We hope we can continue to grow McCall’s Motorworks Revival as one of Monterey’s must-see events in 2020 and beyond.”
