Open Haus

Pomona, Calif. The Mecum Auctions (surely you’ve seen one on television … right … way cool cars, trucks, motorcycles, even man cave memorabilia all being paraded across an open stage in front of a raucous crowd, each barely slowing down as they cross from left to right, only to pause for what seems split seconds with an auctioneer shouting, cajoling, challenging, and quite unsubtly suggesting prices that ratchet show on a gargantuan overheard scoreboard that flashes the current bid in bucks, euros, and two or three other basic world currencies). Get ready. They are coming to the Fairplex in Pomona on Friday and Saturday, February 16th and 17th.

HECTOR CADEMARTORI
Official Artist of the 2018 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

Born in Buenos Aires, where Juan Manuel Fangio was a household name, Cademartori was first influenced in racing in the mid-1960s by the European tradition and great drivers such as Dan Gurney , Jackie Stewart, Pedro Rodriguez, Graham Hill, John Surtees and all the F1 and sports car stars of those days. “Argentina is very much Europe-oriented, therefore we all had a strong influence from Formula One and FIA sportscar racing (my favorite sportscar driver was Vic Elford), but I always followed the Indianapolis 500”.
