BMW R1200C Ride

Here's some footage shot with a GoPro HD camera on a suction mount arm. It was taken riding around Windsor, Colorado. I was just testing out the mount and camera settings; definitely a lot to learn still! The soundtrack is "I Don't Care" and "The Angel Song" by velkro kitty (c) 1993 Pete Deichmann, Jim Favero, Paul McCormick.

2004 Dodge Durango Limited

We sold this beast a while back. Here are my thoughts on it.

What I like about it. It rides pretty well, has the 5.7 liter Hemi, and plenty of power. The exterior actually has lines, unlike most of the "worn out bars of soap" on the road today. The interior is well made and stood up nicely to family use; including two kids and two dogs. In the end it held up nicely for eight years and 101,000 miles! Looks almost like new, right? 

The downsides of the model are poor rear visibility, huge blind spots in the A pillars, and a less-than-tough steel body. Believe me, it dings pretty easy. Its off-road ability is fair but it could definitely use more clearance. It makes crazy wind noise if it is being buffeted from just the right angle.

It sold in a week and a half of Craigslist and personal e-mailing.

Pink T-Bird with Continental Kit

Well, this is one of the most gorgeous cars I have even seen.  The paint looks like it is pink candy, like the frosting on cookies! Just beautiful, straight lines, a continental kit, deep chrome- this car is perfect in every way.  Taken at a local Burger King car show.

1991 BMW 325iX

Another of the cars I'd always wanted to own. I put 100K on this one before handing her off to a Steamboat Springs resident with plans to refurbish it. Again, a nice straight six, but this time with an all-wheel drive system that would make a snow machine jealous. I can't really think of anything that I didn't like about this car. Well, except for parts prices!.
