If you’ve been following along with our team of Marmon Wasp Engineers, you know about the innovation and expertise required to rebuild the iconic 1911 race car that won the first Indianapolis 500 race. Now, team members Ryan VanLeeuwen and Thérèse Stevens are headed to Omaha for the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting –– and they’re bringing the Marmon Wasp with them! 

Part of the engineers’ crash course in 20th-century automotive engineering came from working closely with Corky Coker at his Honest Charley Speed Shop, where they had the opportunity to disassemble and examine Corky’s own rebuilt Marmon Wasp. Now, that car will be accompanying Ryan and Thérèse to Omaha to highlight Marmon’s heritage of innovation and inspire that same spirit in others.
