Pe­gaso-tinged melan­choly and fond Lan­cia Au­gusta mem­o­ries

Classic Cars (UK) - - Contents - Mario La­guna

It was touch­ing read­ing the au­thor­i­ta­tive post­hu­mous views of de­signer Tom Tjaarda on the Pe­gaso Cúpula (Septem­ber 2017 is­sue). As a Pe­gaso fan and au­thor of the book La aven­tura Pe­gaso, I have never read such a thor­ough piece of work on this par­tic­u­lar car.

Ahead of the 2016 Amelia Is­land Con­cours, event founder Bill Warner hon­oured me by ask­ing me to join him on the car se­lec­tion com­mit­tee and judg­ing panel for the Pe­gaso class. The Cúpula was an in­stant se­ri­ous ‘Best in Class’ con­tender, but I was thrilled when a spe­cial jury de­clared the Cúpula ‘Best in Show’. Re­gret­tably, how­ever, I missed my only op­por­tu­nity to meet Tom in Florida.
