Simplex was a featured marque at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and a number of great cars were shown. Here's one I've written about before: http://vintagemotoring.blogspot.com/2012/04/story-of-1911-simplex.html. This car was found and restored by Ed Roy back in the early 1950s. The car has traveled through the collections of George Grew and Otis Chandler, and is now owned by Ray Scherr of CA. It looks to have been freshened up - lovely - and was awarded a class win. Congratulations.
