1948 Triumph 1800 Roadster

Originally bought by a gentleman in California who replaced the engine when it went bad in 1953 with a Ford flathead V8. This car came second in the Palm Springs Auto Concourse in 1951. It still has the flathead in it and is an attention getter wherever I park. Dickey seats (rumble seats) and a second pop up windshield were standard equipment.

Swallow Doretti

1955 Swallow Doretti

This is a California cutie that we are going to be doing a restoration on over the next year.  There were less than 300 Doretti's made, and if you are not familiar with the make, doing a Google search makes for interesting reading about this rare car.

 

Lotus 7

1968 Lotus 7 

This is my autocross or slalom car. It is a black badge Lotus 7 powered by a Mazda rotary with a four speed. This is a super fun car to drive with the Yokohama sticky tires and will give the boys with their rice rockets a good run at most events.

Marcos

1969 Marcos

I purchased this car in a wrecked condition in the fall of 1994. The previous owner had the misfortune to roll the car at Westwood Raceway at a speed of about 130 mph. The car was almost totally destroyed with the roof, both doors, hood, and trunk completely broken off. The motor and tranny both broke off their mounts and were only held in the car by the driveshaft. That winter the car was completely repaired using all of the old fiberglass (without any new pieces). The car was first shown at the Rally In The Valley in 1995 where it won Best of Show. It is powered by a Volvo straight six with triple 45 Webers and has a four speed overdrive gearbox. I have driven the car over 10,000 miles since the restoration and use it regularly in club slaloms and other events.
