Totally in!

Car is a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera, and my props are hanging off the mirror: passes and badges from past Monterey events. Hope to see everyone soon, and thanks for participating. Can't wait to see some cool cars.

Hey everybody, quick note:

The main point of the prop is to ensure that the photo was taken specifically for this online event, so that people don’t just use any picture of a car they may or may not still own.

For that reason, we do not recommend using the background as a prop, and we may not consider entries that use the background as a prop as valid if we cannot verify when the photo was taken.

Using an old photo for an entry is not in the spirit of the event, and can be considered cheating.

Acceptable props include souvenirs from past visits to Monterey, Classic Motorsports Magazines or merchandise, any other object that reminds you of Monterey car week (please explain in your post) or even stuffed animals of creatures found in the Monterey area. Feel free to be creative!

Here’s the Monroes’ 64 Falcon on the Laguna Seca corkscrew, followed by Monterey County Sheriff’s finest. The Falcon, GT40p 302 powered, T5 shifted, was on the final lap of Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital’s Cherry’s Jubilee. No, he didn’t pull me over.

Thanks Tim. It's a beautiful car we love to drive. I drove my daughter to the head of the aisle on her wedding day before escorting down it. That was something that was a priority for her when choosing a wedding venue, and a highlight of the day as well. If you're ever out in SoCal, let me know and I'd be glad to show you the rest of my Triumph stable (TR3A, TR4, 2000 Saloon, 10 Estate Wagon and GT6). And you meant TR2, right?!?! ;-)

My 1989 Rolls Royce Silver Spur. 72k miles and climbing. I use it as much as possible. It is like driving a small english cottage, is about as sporty as one and gets about the same gas mileage. Lots of leather, lots of wood, lots of repairs. Ascot included to represent Pebble Beach Concours attire.

MY TR2 ON ANOTHER "ROAD TRIP". Fortunately last year my wife and I were able to take a six week "ROAD TRIP" That covered a lot of world class Car Events, including all of the Monterey Car Week Events (including Classic Motorsports Kickoff Event), Reno Hot August Nights, Bonneville Speed Week, tours of Jay Leno's Garage and all of the great southern/ central CA Car Museums along with a great Drive up all of the California, Oregon and Washington Coastal Highway. Had a lot of nice open road and even some whale watching.  Doesn't get any better than this, even the weather was perfect. 2020 has left me looking at a lot of car pictures of last year and other online car sites wishing for the "good old days". 

Stay Safe and Godspeed into the Good Times, Best, Bill.

This British Racing Green over Black, right-hand drive, beetle-back, JZR Aero Super Sport three wheeled cycle-car was factory-built in the UK in the 90’s for world-famous, race-car legend Brian Redman. Titled and registered in California as a 1982 Moto Guzzi motorcycle in keeping with the year and make of the donor. It is powered by a 949 cc air-cooled V-twin producing 70 hp. The engine is mated to a 5-speed sequential gear box with power transferred to the swing-arm mounted rear wheel via a drive shaft.

1970 Plymouth duster with a grm dork decal for prop. Ive owned this car since 1995, learned to drive in it, dated my wife in it. First drag race and autocross and parade lap at jershaw. Totalled twice, restored 3 times. Hot 360 with a solid roller cam, five speed,  full custom springs and suspension with spax shocks, giant stereo,  and ac.

Ginya” (silver arrow in Japanese), my classic, original-owner 1991 Mazda Miata (MX-5) NA6 with nearly 350,000 miles on her chassis. 

Purchased in 1990 when I was flying for the U.S. Navy, she is one of the first MX-5s to be registered as a Historical Vehicle in California. She is also the only car to win “Best of Show” 3 consecutive years at the Miata Reunion (North America’s biggest MX-5 event) at Laguna Seca Raceway.

It was an honor to have Ginya win a 1st Place Ribbon—Favorite Miata at last year's Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff Cruise-In!

Prop is a poster from the 2017 The Little Car Show, normally held in Pacific Grove the day after the Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff Cruise-In. Had a great time at both events in 2019; looking forward to doing so again in 2021!!!

My 1968 Porsche 912 in original bluto orange. I've owned and road tripped this car for 15 years on both sides of the pond (currently in Atlanta). At the shop this weekend so can't get to it for a fully staged shot, so here it is in the line-up in happier times at the Chattanooga Festival last year... 

As for a prop, it's (very) hard to see but hanging from the rearview is an original Le Mans NART paddock pass from 1969. Le Mans is the spiritual home for me and this car. We've made the trip to the Le Mans Classic together 5 times so far...

I humbly submit my 120,500mi "Daily Beater" 1990 Chrysler's TC By Maserati freshly detailed.....as well as the faded and destroyed clearcoat takes it. In true Lemonsrally spirit I took a leisurely 1.5hr hour drive into the middle of nowhere to take a pic with a funky roadside attraction for no specific reason; an "Ark" made out of an old barn. This Michigan fella has never visited California aside from a 6hr layover in a hotel, so my prop is a vinyl copy of the Eagles classic album Hotel California. Joe Walsh liked to sing about his Maserati going way faster than this one ever can, so it works for that too.

Here's my 1967 Sunbeam Tiger.  Living on the east coast, this is the only way it will ever be part of the Monterey festivities.  It started life in upstate New York, but it's never been out of New England since I've owned it.  I've driven it through all six New England states, but in the last few years it only gets out of Massachusetts occasionally, easy, since my town borders Rhode Island.   It's always been perfect for a spirited sunset cruise on the twisty back roads around home.

It was going to be a two year project, finish off the previous owner's "restoration", then sell it and find another toy.  The project is a little behind schedule, since it was 10 years old when I bought it.

Presenting for your consideration,"Miss Tillie", my 1974 Triumph TR6.  Tillie was given a five year frame off rebuild (2009-2014).  Purists will note that I chose the non-stock color of black,  deleted the rubber bumpers, and used the original style "TR6" rear fender decals instead of the flag decals.  Numerous performance and handling upgrades were also included in the rebuild.  This photo was taken along the historic Maumee River in NW Ohio with my latest copy of Classic Motorsports as the prop.

Its a long way from Florida to the "sunny" shores of Monterey; the last time I was there was in 2002 but in my mind (since this is a virtual car show) the car below helps me in a virtual way to muscle out of Laguna Seca's turn 11,  blast over the stripe and then power through 1 and down the hill into turn 2. Or think about running down the short chutes between 3 and 4 or 10 and 11. And when that is done, take the tape off the headlights, remove the numbers and listen to the pipes rumble as I drive down Pacific street and cruise along Del Monte Blvd. . . . .in my mind.

The car is a Factory Five Series 3.1 with a 440HP SBF

My original thought was to show using one of my Classic Motorsports t-shirts as a towel, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.  Daily driver gets a bath before any event (even driveway events). This 1966 MGB was restored from a newly-acquired "barn find" rolling shell combined with a rusty and battered but mechanically sound driver that I had owned for 30 years. Body stripped to metal. Assembled over 2014-2018. Basically stock with later seats for comfort and safety on vintage rallies.

I was torn as which car to choose.... I decided to go with my oldest and most classic, sadly this is the best picture I have right now. 

1967 VW Beetle

 

Prop? you have broken down golf cart, broken down Rabbit...  but really what says California more than a Cal look VW?

2008 Mazda Miata PRHT purchased new with 24 K miles on it currently. Even though the 2020 Woodward Cruise has been canceled the action increased last night as the sunlight decreased.  My prop is the early 60s Corvette (probably heading for California or so I tell myself) in the backround with the word FAST on the bus. Mere coincidence?........I think not.  Who says NCs are ugly? Probably none of this fits the contest guidelines but I decided to post it anyway to be in the same company as all the other awesome vehicles already posted.

How about my road trip weapon of a '66 Sunbeam Tiger? Monterey prop is a Hagerty Dawn Patrol hat I earned by serving donuts and coffee at 4:30 am sometime over the past decade of Monterey Car Weeks. Details on the Tiger- I just spent the past few months swapping the original 260 V8 out for a hot 289, built by Davin Reckow for our "Redline Rebuild" series. I've driven this car all over the country in tours and rallies, and I think Tigers are just about perfect. I'm still sorting out the details on the build, but she's a runner and I hope to get it out on the road with my friends at Classic Motorsports in 2021!

I've been attending the kickoff cruise in for the last few years with my son and my 71 240Z.  I was fortunate enough to win best Japanese car at last years event. I want to first thank you and second please consider the other fine autos here for best Nissan.  My Monterey swag is the blue ribbon and entry from last years show along with a framed poster from the 2018 motorsports reunion when Nissan was the featured marquee and the latest issue of my favorite magazine.  By the way, my son is officially a car guy now. That's his S2000 next to the Datsun.  His magazine of choice is Grassroots Motorsports. We hope to both attend next year. It's a great event!

I was scrolling through and thought "man, that looks just like the 240Z we chose for our award last year..."

Here is my 1966 Lotus Elan Fixed Head Coupe (type 36).  The car is very original with selected updates.  It is great fun to drive and is reminiscent to the road car driven my childhood hero Jim Clark during 1967.

My prop shows action from Laguna Seca’s corkscrew from 1992, along with my admission ticket from the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion from 2010 featuring Dan Gurney.  Time certainly flies, hard to believe that it has been ten years since my last visit to the Monterey area.

I bought this 1967 Lotus Elan Plus 2 in 1979 aged 24, having been a Lotus fanatic since the days of JPS. In 1981 I decided to emigrate to Canada from the UK. The toughest part of that decision was selling this Lotus. Thanks to the internet I found it in 2014 by googling the registration “ONR 920F”. It had been through a major renovation, however due to the car being so original many of the parts and components were rebuilt rather than replaced. It came up for sale in 2017 so I bought it and arranged to have it shipped to Northern California where I now live. The dealer then called me and said that the tach was not working, they could either ship it as planned or delay it a few weeks and fix it. Although I am usually impatient, I decided I had not seen the car in 37 years so I could go a few extra weeks. On October 16th, 2017 I took the day to clean up the space in the garage and hang up the poster sized pictures I had kept of it from the 70’s. All was ready for its arrival.

It was that night the wildfire ripped through my hometown destroying my home and everything in it, including my renovated 1991 Lotus Elan. ONR 920F arrived a few days later narrowly missing the fires.

My prop is the California number plate retaining the Lotus’s original number (UK plate also in the picture) and the way in which I found her.

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!

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

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!

The California connection is my continuing reliance on Moss Motors for all things MG.

Just rolled 97,777 miles today. One of my granddaughters named her MiMi.
I entered her at the Mad Dogs & Englishmen show at the Gilmore in Michigan
a couple of summers ago. I was talking with a British car guy about how nice it was
to be allowed to display in their show. He replied they view the Miata as a cousin
to the Brit-sports car. "Some even call it the TR-9!" So cool.

For me California has always been about cars, culture, and music.  This time of Coronavirus is surreal as foretold by Jefferson Airplane - bless their pointy little heads!  Thanks to the sponsors of this very cool virtual curise-in for allowing me to share my 73 Alfa Romeo GTV2000 from faraway Massachusetts with the readers of Classic Motorsports.  This car was delivered new in Claifornia and spent the next 25 years there until I acquired her in 1998.  A full restoration was completed in 2005 with many period correct engine and suspension performance modifications.  A true road and track car with may AROC (Alfa Club) event trophies over the years.  This car has been well loved for many years and still makes me smile every time she roars to life.

My son is a big fan of Classic Motorsports.

I have pics of him readin the Classic MotorSports and GrassRootsMotorSports ( GRM ) in his crib. 

He wanted a pic in front this 914.

I managed to acquire a project '74 914 (2.0  with 911SC Hubs, brakes and wheels ).

He wants to build it when he gets older. Lucky for me the 914 lived its life in Nor Cal and was parked indoor since 1980.

This is my 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV, parked in front of the Folktale Winery today.  My Dad & I attended all the Cruise-ins held at the winery.  My momentos include an ad for the 4th Cruise-in, with a picture of the front of my car in the bottom right.   And a mask, because it's 2020.  Also a die cast model of a Lancia Aurelia, my Dad's favorite car of all time.  Our "shoulda coulda woulda" car!

Dad could still get in & out of the Alfa when the pandemic hit.  I am hoping he gets more rides in it next year.  True story . . . we're in the Costco parking lot and I've just tucked him into the front seat and hoisted his walker into the back seat.  The guy next to us has helped his handicapped wife into their van and says, "Look, honey, his walker fits in the back.  We could get an Alfa!" . . . to her credit, she laughed.

Thanks so much for this virtual car show - it would be a very fun regular event with a different theme each time!

Our 1972 Triumph TR 6 has been owned from almost new in 1974 by my then girlfriend, then               ex-girlfriend, and after a 30 year break, now wife. During the almost 4 years required to pull this all together, her gentle spirt was indeed tested.  This was a complete "Frame Off" restoration of well over 2000 man hours by a group of truley talented craftsman.

"Trixie" now produces 169 HP @ 5600 RPM, with 174 Lbs of torque @ 3600 RPM and looks good doing it.....

My sincerest apologies to Tim Suddard and all the sponsors to create this Virtual Monterey Kickoff Cruise-in, including Hagerty and eBay Motors. I was to excited to be a part of it, and hopefully win a prize  for me and my son...I forgot to read the "FINE PRINT" on pictures to be posted.

I was not able to pull my 96M Miata (posted earlier) from the garage in time.

I opted for plan B. And since I have a 15min break from work. I thought of this.

I hope it meets the general criteria.

Steve

PS: Sorry it's a messy 2 car garage with three cars in it. Two Miata's and a '83 911SC staying cozy in thd garage.

Here's my 1993 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce.  While we wish we were on Cannery Row in Monterey, the City Dock here in Annapolis is the next best thing!  I learned to drive on my father's '71 Alfa spider,  and had to wait until 2017 to get back to Alfas with one of my own.  This spider was purchased in San Diego (close to Monterey, sort of.....) having lived in Arizona and San Diego for 20+ years.  Brought it back east, and its been a blast to drive.  Glad for this "virtual" event--great idea by Classic Motorsports!

1930 Essex two man Indy car recreation at last year's Pacific Grove Auto Rally. The first two photos by George Saitas Photography.

When the rally started there were three Ferraris between me and the cops. I think the Ferraris stopped at the Pebble Beach Lodge. At some point I realized the cops were right on my tail and I got a little nervous because I had taken the baffle out of the exhaust, but they were cool.

Because the Chesapeake Bay, like Monterey Bay, is a big body of water, here's a second entry from a spot a little further south on the Bay, with the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in the far background!  I acquired my 1982 Fiat Spider 2000 in 2019, with only 11,400 original miles.  Not a "barn find", the spider had been meticulously maintained in Ohio and New Hampshire for 37 years.  It is truly a time capsule--original interior, top, 8-track player and even the original cocomat floor mats.   The Fiat drives great, and comes with a fantastic owner community--an additional prop is my DCFiats cap.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dsz8skp6vpm8bcc/Datsun69.jpg?dl=0

Many fans of the 240Z don't realize the 2000 saved Datsun's bacon in "69.   It was the first year for the 240 and it kept snapping the crankshaft at above 7000 rpm.   Fortunately the 2000s stepped up to the plate and won the national runoffs for that year.

Here is my 1975 Opel 1900 (Ascona) in San Francisco’s North Beach. As original owner, I have fond memories of taking my car to watch races at Laguna Seca. Thus, my prop is the window sticker, placed around 1978. At that time, I lived  at  Fort Ord  , the military base where the racetrack resides.

My car was bought with a 4 speed and no air conditioning because I had big plans to use it for SCCA’s showroom stock racing. The Opel was supposed to be the fastest in class C. However, after taking my car to an autocross at the Salinas airport, plans changed. My new tires were severely scuffed and I quickly learned that I couldn’t afford racing on my student budget. Also, my driving skills were not Mario Andretti  level.

Glad you have this forum and the best to all car fans out there.

1969 Lotus Elan S4 SE.  Original owner. Purchased in 1969 at British Motor Car - San Francisco for $3500. Car delivered to me at the Lotus UK factory (Hethel) on July 9, 1969. I drove it all through the UK and Europe in the "Summer of 69". No, I wasn't at Woodstock - I was driving my Lotus at speed on the Continent at the time. Shipped back to California end of August 69 where it has been with me ever since.

Now with 181 hp @ 6900 (stock: 110hp) , 143 lb-ft (stock:105 lb-ft). This is a road (not race) car with torque flat from 4000-7000, redline @7000. Tractable on the street but at 1440 lbs very quick, bhp/tonne: 277. Now also with a new 5-speed gearbox (5th gear 0.75) good for relaxed high speed cruising and a (theoretical!) top speed of 160mph.

All original, numbers matching, rust-free chassis, body, engine (except for upgrades), and interior have been retained. Recently I opted to repaint in classic Lotus colors: BRG (Ferrari Verde British Racing) with a Norfolk Mustard Yellow (Lotus color) stripe. 

My Monterey Week memorabilia are two 1999 Paddock passes for the Monterey Historics, displayed on the windshield.

As a resident of Carmel CA, I have enjoyed Monterey Car Week for decades.  We have brought various of our sports cars to the various events over the years.  We have also been Hagerty clients since the beginning.  For this virtual event, I couldn't resist taking a photo using my tripod in front of our Carmel beach with my Ferrari 458 Spider holding an issue of Classic Motorsport featuring the first Ferrari model I owned (a 308).  My 458 is a keeper as it is the last naturally aspirated mid-engined car Ferrari will ever produce (no turbos or hybrids for me).  As I drove around Carmel today there were just a few exotic cars that decided to make the trip this week.  I'm missing the sights and sounds that usually accompany car week.

Talk about skin of my teeth! I decided to enter an hour ago and ran down to the lake to snap these pics. Ran home and seemed to encounter every slow poke or city bus meandering about. Car ran like a champ as always. It's been in the family for 40 years and is lovingly referred to as "The Healey" by many folks. It has been pulling grocery getting duty during the pandemic, but also provides for some escapist jaunts about town when cabin fever strikes. We love this car and though it will never be concours quality beautiful it is a treasured member of the family.

My buddies and I, when we were in our later 20s, used to tease guys my age now about being "50 year olds racing 30 year old cars". I was driving a NA Miata then and still am now. What happened!?!?

 "An E34 is never late, nor is an E34 early, it arrives precisely when it means to."       

       —Behold, the legend of the 90's, the e34 BMW has entered the chat! 

     I have been attending the Monterey Car Week events every year since I was in the womb. Sadly, I hardly ever see any E34's at any of the events (save a few at Legends occasionally). It does not really surprise me because pretty much everyone I know has told me in some way or another to get rid of this driving machine. So when I stumbled upon this thread a few minutes ago, I thought I would share mine. Luckily, my obsession over this car leads me to take pictures of it practically everyday so I thought I would post one. 

     Let me formally introduce you to this 1993 BMW 525i. It truly is, The Ultimate Driving Machine. E34's have a reputation of being the most reliable BMW's ever built. This car was not only my first car, but it was also my mother's first car, and has been my daily driver for pretty much my entire life from preschool to college. I find E34's a common site to behold on roads to this day, and lately other E34 and E30 drivers in particular give a friendly wave or thumbs up when driving by. While this car inspires enthusiastic feelings in its fandom, in certain parts of the world, it is known as the Kamatarka. Such sentiments are the results of local mafias, mob bosses, and in particular loan sharks having a keen interest in owning the E34, particularly back in the 80's and 90's. The E34 is truly a celebrity of the 90's, being featured as the vehicle of choice by the namesake characters in iconic shows such as Seinfeld and Frasier. Moreover, it is featured in countless films such as the opening scene of the movie Mortal Kombat and the epic car chase of Ronin

     The E34 is the last BMW to feature seperated frontal quad headlights made of glass. It's legendary six cylinder engine has its roots in the M1 and offshoots into epic V12 which (heavily modified) found its way into the 850csi. In fact, just recently BMW revealed that the fastest production car at the time, the Mclaren F1, tested its V12 engine in a BMW e34 Touring (oh yes, e34 was also the first BMW Touring). I would wager a guess that the BMW E34 is the single BMW with the most variants and modifications put out from the factory. No two E34's are ever exactly alike (not just because the M5 was the last handbuilt BMW). Just google interior images, you will find the panels the door cards, the moldings, the buttons, etc... all are a little different, especially in different markets. When it was sold, the E34 was best in class for practically everything.

     I could go on and on but I think you get the idea... The thing is, this car has the classic BMW 6 cylinder exhaust sound, and probably the best horn sound ever. Heck, the leather is of such high-quality, it still has the original scent! It has the solid bank-vault door clank that used to be common in the 30's-70's but more recently can only otherwise be found in gelandewagens and 930s. It is much like my prop, Duchess Kitty who is standing before it: Strong, heavy, and agile.

     If nothing else, I hope other E34 owners will take pride in their cars, and hopefully that BMW will work on expanding their classics team to cover more parts for these machines so owners aren't faced with the dreaded NLA. Thank-you for taking the time to read this. Thank-you to those involved in bringing about this motorsports gathering of such spectacular automobiles.

 

Have a lovely concours viewing experience,

—A BMW driver who uses his turn signals
