The day-long free Mille preview in front of the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill invites fans to view the cars and meet drivers from a dozen American states as well as from Colombia, Britain, Canada and Japan.

During the festivities co-organizers David and Howard Swig will take a roaming microphone to the street to highlight and explain the unique, unusual and significant autos that range from a 1927 Rally ABC and 1928 Bugatti 35B to dozens of Alfa Romeos, Jaguars, Porsches and other vehicles of the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s.
