David Northey’s deep family connections with the motor industry date to 1934 when David’s grandmother married Walter Owen Bentley, who had started his own carmaking business with his brother in 1919. Bentley experienced a meteoric rise to greatness with several iconic models and numerous Le Mans wins.

David Northey will be passing on an inside view of automotive history as he heard and saw as part of the Bentley family.

The doors open at 6:30PM with the lecture schedule to start at 7:00PM.  The admission is $20 if you register in advance or $25 at the door.  Light refreshments will be served.

In addition to the lecture, the folks at the Larz Anderson Museum will have just opened a new display based on the Joseph S. Freeman collection.  I am planning on attending this lecture as it should be quite interesting.
