Tom Trabue -- 1956
Tom Trabue drove this 1956 Denzel with
a local Monterey history.
This car was raced in the late 1950s by Monterey Peninsula driver Scottie
Bliss. Mrs. Bliss was one of the first lady drivers in Northern California
sports car racing. Like other women in history who were the firsts
in a respective group such as advocating for voters' rights, attending
a military university
or playing other sports, Mrs. Bliss was a true pioneer
for women in racing.
The Denzel was the Porsche that "might
have been". Wolfgang Denzel started building sports cars from Volkswagen
components soon after the end of World War II. But that's as
far as he went, there were no later models.
