B.Z. and Michael Schwartz, of New York City have graciously agreed to be the honored collectors at this year’s Historic Festival.  The collection includes diverse and exceptional examples of the best of Post-War Italian GT and Dual-Purpose Sport Racers — Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Siatas (a 208 Coupe and a roadster), a Moretti Spyder, a Cisitalia Nuvolari Spyder, an Alfa Romeo TZ1 and a Duetto, and a Stanguellini sports racer with an interesting history that includes running the 12 hours of Sebring. This car is currently nearing completion of restoration and is expected to debut at Historic Festival 37.

“We are delighted to announce  B.Z. and Michael Schwartz as the honored collectors at this year’s Historic Festival,” said Kent Bain of Automotive Restorations Inc. administrator of Sunday in the Park. “They have been supporters over many years and their cars have found recognition and award at past Sundays in Lime Rock Park on several occasions. When we selected Italian Masterpieces as our theme for this year, we had hopes that Michael and B.Z. might play a role.  Exceptional sporting and touring machines of post war Italian origin are the focus of the Schwartz collection. There could not be a better collection focus fit for this year’s main theme than this collection.”
