Fond Memories of Al Moss, Founder of Moss Motors

Thursday September 27, 2012

Al Moss

"Thank you Al Moss, You will be dearly missed" is on the front page of the Moss Motors website.  Al Moss, founder of Moss Motors passed away on September 25, 2012, he was 85 years old.

On several occasions we have had the pleasure to enjoy the company of Al Moss at our Jaguar Club of Northern Arizona (JCNAZ) meetings and the Monterey Historic Races.  Yes, Al Moss will be dearly missed and he'll be missed by so many.  Although the exact cause of death has not been disclosed, we were informed through JCNAZ that Al was being treated for a cancer in August, but was in good spirits.

Our favorite memories of Al is watching him finish the Monterey Historic race in his legendary 1948 MGTC with the turtle radiator cap, and seeing him arrive for our Jaguar Club road tours in his 2006 convertible Miata with a Jaguar Leeper as the hood ornament.  He frequently entered the car in shows as the Make and Model being a Miata Jaguar.

To read Moss Motors' entire tribute to Al, go to Moss: We Are Honored to Carry the Name

Our sincerest condolences to Al's many friends and family.

9/28 Update - We have been informed through a close friend of Al's that he died from complications of his cancer.  Thank you Lynda.

Route 66 Rendevous

This story starts in 1990 when the San Bernardino Convention & Visitors Bureau (SBCVB)  "Route 66 Rendezvous" was a classic car show of one and half days duration. Since then the event has grown significantly to where this year there were over 1650 cars shown, and over 500,000 spectators drawn to a four day event.  However, this year almost didn't happen....read more.
