We always joke about the pairs of classic cars that come through the shop and showroom. Today we've got two 'Rosso Rubino' runners of their day, the 1970 Maserati Ghibli and the 1971 Ferrari 365 GTC/4. These classics recently came for consignment but needed a bit of attention before they were ready to roll out. Join us as we cover the classic car restoration of these Ruby Reds.
It's nearing the end of classic car season and over the weekend our team was happy to attend the 38th Annual Colorado Concours d'Elegance! Jack and the team were out to show quite a few consignment cars and a past restoration. Join us as we cover the amazing Concours event put on by Ability Connection Colorado, and highlight some of our favorite standouts from the show.
We're always looking for new skills to be learned here at Farland Classic Restoration. Many of these classic cars have been around for decades but we continually see developments in restoring these icons. Today we'll be covering a new service we're offering here in the shop and having plenty of fun with, Dry Ice Blasting.
Following WWII, Europeans were developing unique styles of car manufacturing. Ferrari coupled themselves to Pininfarina, Maserati worked with many different design houses who could produce their work, but American brands tended to think alike. Europeans were coachbuilding refined, elegant designs. Americans leaned towards necessity over elegance. Join us as we cover the development of the station wagon in America.
Over the past few months, we've seen classic cars quickly moving through the showroom including quite a few collections. Today we'll be highlighting the newest trio to the stables, a set of light blue Maserati and their roaring red compatriot. We'll be digging into a bit of Maserati design history and highlighting this unique trio going up for consignment soon.
Over the past few weeks, we've been plenty busy between trips to California and getting a few bigger jobs finished up here in the shop. While our technicians were working their magic our head of Marketing, Tom Van Ness recently joined Greg Stanley on The Collector Car Podcast to chat a bit about the shop and the work it takes to get a car out to these world-renowned events. Join Tom and Greg for the Mega Monterey Review!
A few months ago we were lucky enough to see a familiar chassis back in the shop. This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II has spent nearly its entire life in Colorado, going all the way back to Fo and Temple Buell Jr. selling the car to its original owner back in 1966. We took to calling it the "Final Ferrari" being it was the last example of the 330GT 2+2 produced for the North American market. Now off to the next stable, we wanted to give you just one final update on this Italian.

In the world of classic cars, there's no event bigger than Monterey Car Week. From the chance to see classic icons on the road, to one-off multimillion-dollar cars on the Pebble Beach 18th fairway, it's a week unlike any other. For our shop, Pebble Beach and Amelia Island are some of the best opportunities to develop our relationships within the community and reconnect with old friends. We sent Jack out for the week to keep an eye on the market for us.

The relationships we develop with customers are one of the most valuable aspects of our business and have helped us to grow over the past 30 years. Some of these customers have given us the chance to sell multiple cars or even collections based upon our previous work. This process of consigning collections is a detailed and time-consuming process, but it can be beneficial to those with more cars than they can handle! Today we'll cover some of our recent consigned collections and how our services help to ensure your icon finds the next caretaker.
We always joke about pairs coming into the shop and showroom here at Farland, but sometimes we get in multiples from a unique brand. When we had two modern-classic Aston Martin convertibles in, we felt it was time for a bit of history.
