Ed Godshalk

Ed caught the sports car bug in high school in the early 1970s when he bought a rusty Triumph TR3A that promptly seized its motor. His primary interest is Italian sports cars, but he also has an Amilcar CGS and had a Bugatti Brescia, both from 1925. He completed the 2004 Mille Miglia in the Amilcar, and took 3rd place at Pebble Beach in 2009 with the Bugatti. He vintage-rallies a Lancia Aurelia GT, and he’s won the Monte Shelton NW Classic Motor Rally five times since 1990. Godshalk is restoring a Cisitalia 202 “Corsa” coupe, driven by Taruffi in the 1948 Targa Florio, and a D46 monoposto once owned by Harry Schell. He runs the web site Cisitalia.net.
