1956 Mercury Montclair

Shown by Will Anderson of Fort Collins Colorado, this 1956 Mercury Montclair is as clean can be. This one features nicely detailed lake pipes and a big continental kit. Other features that stand out are the circular patterned wheels, the subtle striping and chrome that looks a hundred miles deep.

Chrome, with chrome, and a bit of extra chrome.

Continental Kit and cool wheel detail.

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!
