1941 Chevy 2 Door Sedan

Here's a beauty; a 1941 Chevy two door Sedan shown by Larry Horst of Windsor Colorado. The metallic red paint shows a mild patina and the stance of the car is perfect. Sure, the finish doesn't glow, but it sure shines and the ride means business. This is a driven Hot Rod; I like that.

Thoroughbred Motorsports Stallion

I found this unusual trike at the Trail Ridge Road Alpine Visitor's Center in Rocky Mountain National Park. I've never run across one of these before. I did look around for the owner, but was unable to locate him (her?). Maybe I didn't look around hard enough, but at 11,796 feet I didn't want to waste the oxygen.

The Thoroughbred Motorsports Stallion is powered by a 143 HP Ford four cylinder engine with a Ford 5 speed automatic with reverse. The hand-built motor trike is crafted in the U.S. and features a long list of luxuries that are usually reserved for vehicles with doors; things like air ride suspension with an on-board compressor and air conditioning and heat. They are distributed through Motor Trike Dealerships.

Is it a convertible Mini Cooper?

Stallion? Because the front-end is equine?

Steering wheel and cup holder = 3/4 car with no roof.

Rocky Mountain National Park

It's hard to beat a stay in Estes Park at Murphy's River Lodge and a day exploring Rocky Mountain National Park. This year is particularly green with all the rain and snow we've had. Beautiful place. Have a great Independence Day!

1957 Chevy 3100 4x4

This 1957 Chevy 3100 Four by Four is beautifully put together. Just right in every way, it sits mildly high on its lift kit. Powered by a Chevy 350 it is just a perfect old truck. Shown by Paul Seevers from Johnston, Colorado. 

Chrome so clean it looks white

Typical Colorado Weather

Here's what one can count on in Colorado; random weather with no apparent reason. After a beautiful, warm, sunny afternoon... I hope all the crops made it through unscathed.

And this
Led to this
And 30 minutes later.... 
As if nothing happened.
Welcome to Colorado. I hope you've got full coverage on that car and roof.

1961 AMC Rambler Classic

Here's one for the AMC Guys and Gals. A 1961 AMC Rambler Classic built from the ground up. Complete with air conditioning and a picnic in the trunk. I love the Bail Out Studebaker bumper sticker too. Not original perhaps, but good. This apparently all original is shown by Ted Hollman of Windsor, CO.

1967 Ford Fairlane GT

One of the meanest looking Fords to ever smoke tires. This 1967 Ford Fairlane beauty is owned and shown by Allen Guffey of Fort Collins, Colorado. '67 was a good year.

Foose Stallion Mustang

I stopped in at Best Buy in Centerra the other day to pick up some parts for a client and there it is, a Foose designed 2007 Mustang! At least a 2007 is my best guess... 

In case anybody doesn't know about Chip Foose, go check this out. The partnership with Unique Performance that created the beast went south and got very ugly quite a few years ago. Too bad, it was a nice looking design. 

I don't have any specific details on this car but it is very nicely put together. I found references to the Foose Stallion here at the Mustang Forum and here at Supercars.net . I came out of the store as it drove off and it sounds as good as it looks.

I snapped the shots with my Droid Ultra. Not too bad a camera for having a phone stuck to it...

Ducati Monster S4 Corse For The Spring

A friend of a friend broke out his Ducati Corse for some springtime riding. Andrew's Ducati is a Corse edition that is near stock. The only tweaks he's made are an aftermarket Arrow exhaust and bars that sit him a little bit more upright. It's so comfortable that he rode it all the way down to Texas recently. 

The bike's unique paint scheme is an OEM feature on this Special S4 Monster. Normally I'm not a big fan of factory custom paint, but this is just perfect for this sport bike. Great bike Andrew!

Nice find before a business meeting at Starbucks!
