14D207E5-C041-4CAF-B78D-B5C1F5469EE6.jpegThis is my ‘08 Chevy Colorado. I know it’s not a hot rod, she’s a humble work truck. Just a couple thousand miles and she’ll have 300,000. She’s been a true work horse. Gen 1, I-5, 3.7L.

Thanks to y’all and your videos I think I’m going to rebuild the motor and keep up with the needed repairs instead of trading her in.

My favorite photo of Red, White AND Blue Cars

For Hagerty photo contest -- 2019-11-15_M3 - Alfa - 911 Longhood-76975-2.jpg

Cars, from right to left:

  • Red - my 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000
  • White - a 1960s Porsche 911S
  • Blue - my 2001 BMW E46 M3
  • Location:  California

I was excited to have the opportunity to get these three cars in the same photo.  They are two cars from my decades-long dream list that I'm already very fortunate to own, and the next car (1960s Porsche 911 or 912) that I hope someday to be able to own.  The common factor for why I love these cars is their beautiful aesthetic designs that are well proportioned, with perfect lines, and are timeless and iconic;  they are each fabulous driver's cars that handle in unique and engaging ways and are simply fun to drive;  and every one was advanced and ground breaking in some way at the time released.

This is our 87’ Chevy V10 (one year only) truck. When I decided I wanted one in early 88’ there was only one red new one (actually a demo with 8K miles) left in the NW, and it was in Eugene OR. We drove from just outside the new country of CHOP with an offer I had set my mind on. They didn’t take it, so I told them where we would be staying (no cell phones yet) and really expected them to call, they didn’t. This had worked for me with motorcycles in the past. So while in the hotel I was looking through newspapers and ran across another red one that sounded exactly the same, even the 8K miles, but had a 4” lift kit, and 35” tires (just what I had planned to do anyhow!), and it was on the way home in Oregon City. The rest is history, and still have it today nearly 33 years later with (going on) 100K more miles. Out of all the junk I have owned, I think this old truck has received the most attention.

This is our (early) 93’ Dodge Viper. I purchased it in 2004’. I am the 3rd owner, the previous owner was an ex Top Fuel drag boat racer and wanted to get back into racing, but his boss (aka wife) said he had to sell something. The original owner worked for Shelby. It had only 5800 miles on it, and had dealer installed AC (one of only 20 I believe). I added a Roe Racing supercharger with meth/water injection. It now has a ton of miles, nearly 9K! lol I picked it up just N of SF and drove it home up the coast (even through a Redwood) with a friend to just outside the new country of CHOP. Funny story, we got to the CA coast and couldn’t find a cabin (like there are in WA) nor hotel, they all were booked! Come to find out it was Valentines weekend and also Presidents day weekend! We found one hotel that didn’t have a No Vacancy sign. I asked if their sign was burned out or if they might actually have a room. They had one, but it was the Honeymoon Suite. I said, I don’t care we will take it as I was tired, and tired of driving around in circles. So there we were, two old dudes on Valentines weekend in the Honeymoon Suite (with a hot tub), in a Viper that still had the CA custom license plate that said OLDOODS! WTF?! lol

This is our 65’ Sunbeam Tiger. I purchased it in 2018 after retiring and selling our 27’ Eliminator Daytona of a quarter century. My childhood friend had a Tiger when we were kids and still had it. He came by in it and I said I should have bought one when they were affordable. He said you can still find them and turned me on to a couple. This one was probably the cheapest in the country at the time, but for some good reasons. The biggest was someone had put a C4 auto in it. I used to be a Corvette fan and have had six. I think what drew me to this Tiger was it reminded me of my old red and white 61’ that also had dual quads. Sandy (aka “Hank Kimball”) of gtsparkplugs.com gave me a good deal on a brand new aluminum David Kee Toploader and Hurst linkage (when he decided to go with a Jerico in his race Tiger), and polishing the turd began. I was ready to paint the stripes silver, but fell in love with the red, white, and blue (engine). The engine is a 68’ 302 (308) and I recently added a baby Comp Thumper cam, and some NOS Sanderson headers that I had Jet-Hot coated. It’s still the slowest car I own, but the funnest! We are just outside the new country of CHOP.

Not a car, but a red classic. This is our 69’ (one year only) Honda SL90. I purchased it in 2017’. I had a 69’ Honda MiniTrail 50 when I was a kid and ran across my old 69’ brochure. There were many bikes per page, but two pages of the SL90! I remembered dreaming of one back then, but it was soo big (lol), and so out of reach! I searched eBay for Honda SL’s and nothing! Tried Craigslist and there was one, a red 90 just like in the brochure, and it had previously been on display at the LeMay Museum. I came home with it that night! My Puppy and I have well over 200 miles on it together, and have completed two (VME) vintage bike rides on Vashon Island WA on it, including the TT. I figure I started in diapers then small bikes, and now I am back to small bikes, and you know what’s next! lol 8hp has never been so fun! lol We are just outside the new country of Chop.

I posted my red 1965 396 convertible with my 1986 Indy Pace car edition. I forgot my 1980 Corvette with the oyster interior for my white contribution.DSC00891.JPG

I am such a sucker for 80-82 Corvettes with the two tone paint scheme!

Looks to be a lot of Corvette fans on here, and although I no longer have one, I just stumbled across an old pic of two that I had in the past and they are red, and in a sea of red! And since we have no Independence Day celebrations anymore just outside of the new Country of CHOP, this virtual show is the closest this old man will get!

 

The 68’ is an L68 427 400 hp Tri-Power with a 4 speed. I had sold it to a friend at this point. The 62’ was still mine and had a 327 (331) that I over did a bit, but all with period correct parts, like the huge Chet Herbert solid roller cam. It put out 501 hp on the Desktop Dyno and felt like it, but the drivability was horrible. Hence the baby Comp Thumper in our Tiger. Like the porridge, “just right”!

 

The red boat (and semi) was Reggie Fountain’s old 47' race boat. I was lucky enough to ride in it twice, once with triple 1400 hp Gentry twin turbo’ed motors, and once after it was “pleasurized” with “only” triple 1000 hp Mercs.

 

Happy 4th, I hope you still have celebrations where you are!
