Car: 1999 Acura NSX-- Zanardi Edition

Owner: John & Koko Carlson

Location: Vancouver British Columbia, Canada

Class: Supercars

Crescent Beach Concours: Appeared as a feature car

====================================

Zanardi Edition, Acura NSX

1999 NSX ‘Zanardi’ edition. #28 of 51 produced. Only 49 were sold to the general public. These vehicles were handcrafted by a team of specially selected artisans. This vehicle displays the 1st VTEC Design engine complete with titanium connecting rods. 

This particular vehicle has a glorious pedigree. It was owned by legendary ‘Fast and the Furious’ actor Paul Walker and partner Roger Rodas. It was featured at their AE Collection in Los Angeles. I purchased the vehicle in 2014 from the AE Collection one year after the Walker/Rodas accident.

The vehicle is 100 % original and in ‘stock unmodified’ condition. The build was significantly influenced by 3 time world championship F1 driver Ayrton Senna. Top speed is in excess of 180 MPH. It is considered as a ‘true’ Supercar. This vehicle is not a garage Queen. The odometer displays 30,000K. It is exercised by me often.

These vehicles are easily maintained and are a joy to race or Tour. They are very user friendly. They were the vehicle that made Ferrari change their approach to being somewhat more user friendly

Car: 2003 Enzo Ferrari

Owner: Lecha Khouri (Supercar Advocates)

Location: Los Angeles, California / Sydney

Proposed Class: Supercars

This Enzo (VIN 134280) was previously owned by the Sheikh of Kuwait. I hold all records since new, including all accessories that came with the car. 

Since in my ownership, the car has had a complete refresh, of which some examples include the removal of all the wheels, headlights, under trays and all sticky interior parts. 

All removed parts have been restored back to their original condition, and the Enzo (VIN 134280) now presents as new. 

Enjoy the images attached. I hope they speak true to the restored beauty and rarity of this iconic automobile.

I am interested in entering my 1975 Lamborghini Urraco P250, an extremely rare (this is one of 22 cars exported to the USA with left hand drive, out of a total production run of only 749 vehicles) example of Lamborghini's first atttempt at an "entry level" V-8 model. In keeping with Lamborghini's adherence to naming their cars using various bullfighting nomenclature, "Urraco" roughly tranlsates as "little bull" or "young bull."

My name is Gene Ondrusek, and I reside in San Diego, CA.  I found this car in Dallas, TX in 1987, where it was presented as "running well," despite the unknown ticking time bomb of a maladjusted timing belt.  Once this snapped, it led to a full on 4 year restoration process that continues to this day!  Everyone knows that restorations are not events, they are processes.  To date, my car has earned 1st place trophies in its class from multiple concours events, including La Jolla and Palos Verdes and was featured in the December 2006 edition of Hemmings Sports and Exotics magazine.

I believe this would best be represented in the Sports and GT, 1970-1980 class, or perhaps European Coachwork?

  1. Car: 1991 Acura NSX

  2. Owner(s): Ryan Blodi

  3. Location: Farmington Hills, MI

  4. Proposed Class(es): Cars of the 80's and 90's, Greatest Supercars

  5. Details:  I purchased the car in April of 2006 in El Paso, Tx and drove it cross country back home to Michigan.  The car was completely stock and clean. Over the last 14+ years it has undergone many modifications which are detailed in the build sheet.  The last time it was on the dyno it meansured 556rwhp which was before the stoker engine build.  A shear blast to drive with it's power to weight ratio.

Car: 1992 Ferrari 348ts

Owners: Farland Classic Restoration

Location: Denver, CO

Proposed Classes: Cars of the 80’s and 90’s

Details: Rosso Corsa exterior, tan interior and a dogleg 5-speed. This 348ts checks all the boxes. This Ferrari spent most of its life in Northern California until three years ago when it was given a new home in New Mexico. Included with the vehicle are multiple years’ service records and a car cover.

With pop-up headlights, a removeable top and sliding seatbelts it checks off many of the 90’s quirky car requirements. In the past 3K miles the vehicle has had a new clutch put in and a full cam belt service was done last year.
