Saw this low mileage  1989 Alfa Spyder advertised locally a couple of years ago and decided to go take a look. Turned out to be a rust free, clean car, so we just couldn't resist.

This 1965 Lotus Elan has been in my family for 35 years. I bought it from my brother 25 years ago as a basket case, a total of 12 boxes of parts came with the body including engine/gearbox. After a 3 year build, it qualified on pole and won its first race in 2010. Been racing it ever since, with more pole positions and wins. Puts a smile on my face every time!

Here's my 2007 350Z. I also had an original pre-order 2003 350Z which unfortunately got totaled by somebody. So I replaced it with this identical 2007 Z. The little sea otteron my windshield also enjoys riding in my Z.

My 1994 300ZX is stuck in the garage so I will post up a pick of the daily instead 2105 Chevy SS manual. I included a poster from Monterey when Nissan was the featured marquee.

Entered for your consideration is my 1983 Mini Cooper and matching trailer.  I built the car several years ago with the intent of keeping it stock looking.  The suprise is in the car.  It is no longer a 4 cylinder front wheel drive.  It is now a mid-engined rear drive powered by an Acura 3.2l V-6.  It makes around 300 hp and has a 0 - 60 mph time of 3.9 secs.  Stock looks but far from stock performance with the reliability of a Honda.  By the way it is also insured by Hagerty.

When I think of Monterey, I think of wine and sunshine.  That is why I have the wine bottles and hats as my nod to the show.  I wish I had a little more sunshine for this picture

Posting a picture of my 1967 Jaguar E-Type.  Opalescent SIlver Blue with Dark Blue interior and fabric top.  I have added a shot of one of my classic Classic Motorsports t-shirts, featuring a Jag.  I cropped off the sleeves because they are a bit greasy!  I believe that the cars are meant to be driven and the t-shirts worn.

A week without Monterey is like a week without a sports car.  Not quite.  We can still drag out the fun car and go for a blat.  Late 80s Birkin, titled as 1965 Lotus.  No worries.

What's better than an authentic, beautiful California girl to showcase a Monterey Car Week starlet?  Nothing!  The car?  A 1960 Panhard PL17 we've owned since 1989.  The girl?  Our lovely daughter Audrey.  Case closed!

I've never been to Monterey as we're on the East Coast; but we've watched the race for many years.  Here's my 1984 Mazda RX7 sporting last year's Monterey poster.

Here's my 1965 Mini Cooper S in my garage, waiting to go for a drive.

My momentos are the vintage-style Laguna Seca sign and pictures of my cars at Laguna Seca, as well as my checkered-flag mask hanging from the mirror in honor of all the essential workers on the front lines of the pandemic battle.

Many thanks to Classic Motorsports for giving us a little bit of Car Week this way!

Here's my Sprite, all dressed up and no place to go. I've had it since 1978, a few months after Pop kicked me out of bed one August morning and said, "Cmon, I think you'll like this: sports car racing like was back when I had the MG." And so we were off to Laguna Seca for the Historics. Pop couldn't believe it when we saw Phil Hill drive the Mercedes 300 SLR. I saw Stan Huntley's Sebring Sprite and was hooked. That December, we dragged home a basket case Sprite and the die was cast. I kind of like the garage shot, with its three sets of racing colors: the Shelby/Gurney blue-with-white, Gulf racing on the walls and the Team Lotus colors on the Sprite!

Yes, I thought this was going to be pretty easy, but now I am not so sure. I have Zoom calls scheduled all day with various marque experts to help us make some tough choices. Even without the great prizes we have in store, this has been a real treat to see everyone's amazing cars in one place.
