Malcolm Pray's Collection
I was astonished by all of Malcolm’s breathtaking classic cars, but the one that stuck out the most for me was the ’61 MercedesBenz 190 SL. It was also the centerpiece of his meeting room in the museum. This car stuck out to me the most because of its unique design for the backseat, which was actually sideways! I would have loved to jump in the backseat and go for a ride. It was amazing to learn more about judging in what seemed like a private indoor car show! Malcolm’s collection had such a wide variety of cars from the my favorite ’60 MG to a ’54 Kaiser Darrin, (where the doors roll into the front fenders), to a ’37 Bugatti and my dad’s favorite, the ’37 Auburn Boat tail speedster.

It was also jaw dropping to walk down a hallway of trophies, publications and photos of Malcolm with different U.S. Presidents. This was an amazing experience. My dad and I are judges at Greenwich Concours maybe we’ll catch up with Mr. Pray this year. I’d love to meet him.

Since then I have become a regular contributing author to the Classic Car Club of America New England Region magazine and I have been published nationally on multiple occasions. I am now fifteen and on the board of advisors for the Classic Car Club of America NER. From Amelia Island to the Boston Cup I have attended many car shows, tours and events along with helping in the process of planning the Classic New England CARavan for this coming September. I look forward to one day owning my very own classic and I hope to enter my vehicle in one of the various events I have attended throughout my childhood. E-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
