See the stuff of legends. Car racing-legends. The tribute exhibition, Phil Hill: The Life of a Legend, comes to an end this weekend. "In addition to being the world's first and only American-born Formula 1 champion, he was a student of automobile history, an accomplished mechanic, a classic car restorer, a skilled photographer, and a family man." It's fitting that an exhibit about such a family man (the exhibit was created along with Phil's son, Derek) would close out on the quintessential family weekend.
