John's '32 Shines at Petersen

Griot's Garage had the honor of being selected by the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles to attend and award the "Best Interior" at their annual Deuce Day, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the 1932 Ford. Hundreds of wonderful cars were on display... from original models to highly modified hot rods. Choosing the best interior was extremely difficult as there were so many great cars. A winner was picked and the Griot's Garage master Car Care Collection went to John Coute and his custom rod.

John's '32 is powered by a custom built, stroked, 377 cubic inch, aluminum small bock Chevy producing over 700 horse power! A Mooney Ham 671 blower with 2 Holley carbs provide all this raw power on 87 octane gas! A roll bar was integrated into the interior for rigidity. He built a custom steering wheel and the instrument panel is lined with simulated salamander grain vinyl. This ain't no trailer queen. John drives his car all over the country. Congrats on the win!
Debbie Receives Cavallino Honor

I'm proud to announce that Griot's Garage was selected again to be the exclusive car care sponsor to this year's Cavallino Classic. The Cavallino is the most prestigious Ferrari event in the country. Held each year at the beautiful Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, it brings together over a thousand Ferrari's and features several days of historic racing, rallies and concours events. Griot's Garage also presented the Preservation Cup for the Ferrari representing fine, original, and preserved condition to Debbie Pyle. This was the eleventh year of this Ferrari-only event, and I look forward to seeing you all there next year.

Below is Debbie Pyle receiving the Preservation Award for her 246 GTS Dino. Debbie has owned the car since new, and has cared for it herself for two decades. Presenting the award is Adolfo Orsi from Italy, a foremost authority on antique and classic cars. His expertise is Maserati... fitting, since his ancestors founded the company in the 1930s.
