Robert M. Lee, who was famous for his extraordinary car collection, his generosity, friendship and wonderful parties, died on January 28.
He was 88.
Lee, an SCMer for decades, threw fantastic parties after the end of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Lee took Best of Show at Pebble Beach in 2006 with his 1931 Daimler Double-Six 50 Corsica Drophead Coupe. Lee also won Pebble Beach in 2009 with his 1937 Horch 853 Voll & Ruhrbech Sport Cabriolet.
Lee, a real estate developer, gun collector and founder of Hunting World, also worked to protect African wildlife and their habitats.
“The collector world has lost another one of its great personalities,” said Keith Martin. “Not only did Bob have an unparalleled collection of cars — we all benefited from his sharing them with us at the many concours and events he participated in.”
