Danville Vintage Cars Museum, Blackhawk Museum, Announces Lecture with West Coast Racer Lou Brero Jr.

Danville, California (EastBayDaily) — Blackhawk Museum, a Danville, East Bay and Bay Area museum featuring vintage cars, classic cars and rare cars, is excited to announce the latest featured guest in its Saturday morning lecture series: West Coast racer Lou Brero Jr. The lecture with Brero will take place on May 5 at 10 a.m. and is free with regular admission to the museum.

"Join us for the return of racing champion Lou Brero Jr. to the Blackhawk Museum,” Jon Snyder of Blackhawk Museum said. “You will be on hand to hear some great stories about West Coast Racing in the 1950s and 1960s."

Both Lou Brero Jr. and his father were known for their driving skills and highly competitive spirits. The Breros raced everything from their Kurtis-Cadillac to C-Type Jaguars, as well as the 1953 Ferrari 375 Spider–the same car that had been driven by Phil Hill, Ken Miles and Carrol Shelby.

“Both Breros were legends that managed ‘superior performances with hard to drive machinery,’” Snyder said.

The Blackhawk Museum features a wide array of exceptionally immaculate vintage cars that span the entire course of automotive history. The Blackhawk Museum’s automotive exhibition of International Automotive Treasures presents and displays historically significant and artistically inspired classic cars for public enjoyment and educational enrichment.
