GM Stylist to Speak at Symbolic

Symbolic Motorcars - Sunday February 16th

Arrangements have been made for the club to have our first annual general event at Symbolic Motorcars in La Jolla on Sunday, February 16th at 10:30am. If you haven?t been to Symbolic in gorgeous La Jolla, you?ve missed one of the country?s finest Ferrari showrooms, with significant vintage racing and road Ferraris displayed in a highly tasteful setting.

As a unique treat, this event will feature Mr. Chuck Jordan as guest speaker. As some of you might know, Chuck has contributed a great deal to automotive style and interest. Mr. Jordon has worked as Chief Designer for Cadillac Studios, General Motors Executive in charge of GM Cars and Trucks Exterior, Director of Design at Opel (Germany), and finally as VP of Design for GM until his retirement in1986.

As if that wasn?t enough, he is a personal friend of Sergio Pininfarina and can recount interesting stories of the famous Pininfarina design house. Chuck will afford us insight into his early background with a slide presentation of both GM and Ferrari. He will tell us of his ?ride with Enzo?. But above all, he will tell you he is a real Ferrari nut - from the ?50?s, who was there when it was all happening. I assure you an entertaining and informative event. Our hosts at Symbolic will serve a continental brunch and, of course, an amazing array of vintage Ferraris.

For those wishing to arrive the night before, Judd Goldfeder and the San Diego Region will host a dinner party at Judd?s home, and as you all know he and Faye always provide an awesome display of food and frivolity. We sincerely hope you all will attend.
