Gilmore Speaker Series

“The Last Open Road” by B.S. Levy, Automotive Historian and Author

Sunday May 4 - 3 p.m. in the Heritage Theater

Free with Museum Admission – or $5/Lecture

B.S. (Burt) Levy always had two great dreams: to become a great novelist and write books that people wanted to read, and to become a racing driver and drive all the greatest cars on all the best racetracks in the world. Accomplishing both dreams, Levy has scored over 100 race and classic wins in an incredible variety of cars and has published an acclaimed series of novels, including The Last Open Road. Following the life of a fictional 19 year old mechanic working at Finzio’s Sinclair Station in New Jersey, Levy winds Buddy Palumbo, who has a talent for the newly appearing foreign cars, through the 1952 racing season and beyond. As Levy speaks about Buddy, the people he meets and the events that take place, the stories almost sound like a narrative as they ring true in the mind of motor sports fans.

The nine week Gilmore Speaker Series is open to the public and covers a variety of subjects. Each of the Sunday afternoon presentations begin at 3 pm and are only $5 each per person, or free with regular museum admission. The lectures are appropriate for all ages and guests are encouraged attend those that interest them most. No registration is required and walk-ins are welcome.
