'Mormon Meteor' wins 'Best of Show' at Pebble Beach

Angelo Van Bogart |

The recently restored 1935 Duesenberg speedster “Mormon Meteor,” owned by Harry Yeaggy of Cincinnati, Ohio, took the hobby’s biggest award Aug. 19 when it won “Best of Show” at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach, Calif.

Yeaggy recently had the car converted to its original configuration, so it now more closely resembles the condition it was raced in (and in which it set speed records) by Ab Jenkins.

The car was purchased in the last couple years by Yeaggy at the Gooding Auction at Pebble Beach for approx. $4 million, before it’s restoration.

Stay tuned for more info and pics in the near future!
