A significant bit of racing/Hollywood history is coming to the San Marino Motor Classic in Los Angeles (Sunday, June 10).
Adam Carolla will display 10 Paul Newman raced cars from his collection at the eighth annual San Marino Motor Classic, a premier concours d’elegance in Los Angeles. Most of the iconic cars Newman raced will be publicly displayed together for the first time, including the 1979 Porsche 935 that won its class and took 2nd overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Newman’s 933-hp 1979 Nissan 280ZX Twin Turbo V8 will also be on display. For racing and Paul Newman fans, this is an amazing one day only opportunity.
