Over the past few years, we've made a considerable effort to dig into the history of our classics, whether Pat was covering the historical legacy of a model like our Hudson Hornet or documenting the personal account of a car like the Ghia Gilda; We love our history. One of the best ways to establish a vehicle's history is to see it a few times throughout the car's life. Today's classic recently rolled back to us after a year in the Florida sun. Join us as we sell it again, the 1961 Porsche 356B Super 90 Roadster.
Here at the shop, we have plenty of history! We started in 1991, and since then, we've seen countless models move through our shop for everything from rehanging doors to complete nut-and-bolt restorations like the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 'Daytona'. This time, we'll dig through some of the history hidden in storage and the secret "upstairs" area, join us for Parts with Pat!
We've been busy with the hot weather here in the shop. This month we've been very successful and seen sales picking back up quite a bit with the 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL and 2008 Shelby GT shipping out last week. We also were quite happy with the final results from our recent venture onto Cars and Bids with our Mercedes-Benz S600 that sold over on their site. This time, we'll highlight another modern classic getting ready for bidding. Join us for Benz and Bids!
Over the past few months, we've been getting into all the electric fun here in the shop. From our Colorado Classic Electric Porsche 912 and constantly chatting with clients and among the team about where the electric conversions will happen next. This time around, we're happy to announce our new shop truck is rolling into the shop. Join us for the Electric Rennaissance.
Some of our favorite fun at Farland is documenting the history of the many icons that pass through. While many of these icons go on to live happy lives as Sunday Drivers or Concours queens, others get restored for sentimental reasons. We've covered the storied legacy of the Hudson Hornet model in a previous blog, but today we'll focus on this specific Hudson Hornet. A labor of love here in the shop and one that recently got to reconnect with some old friends. Join us for the Farland Forney Follow-up.
We've been busy here in the shop and showroom, recently receiving our old friend the 1961 Porsche 356 Super 90 Cabriolet and sending off the Mercedes Benz S600 with the auction that just finished up on Cars and Bids. This time around, the team is getting out of the shop and enjoying a warm Colorado weekend as we covered plenty of events. Join us for the Full Farland Weekend!
Over the past few months, we've covered quite a few of the Farland Classic Cars moving through auction. Most recently was the excellent presentation of the Jaguar XKE 2+2 by our lovely owner Jerry and his excellent documentation of his long-lived cat. Late last year, we also watched the stunning Fiat Dino Spider, which ended up staying here in Denver! This time around, we'll highlight the other side of the coin, with a modern marvel and the benefits of running an auction with Cars and Bids. Join us for the Auction watch on the Mercedes-Benz S600!
Here at the shop, we love to highlight the real oddities that move through our shop and showroom. Over the past few years, we've had plenty of memorable motors, from the pair of Vespas that showed up and our friend the Dodgem Bumper Car. This time, we'll highlight the fastest car on water and the fastest boat on land, our friend currently hanging around the showroom, the Amphicar 770.
While we often cover the classics moving through our doors, this time around we sent Pat out to do some documenting. Yesterday at the Broadmoor World Arena was Technical Inspection for racers of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb's 100th running which will be happening this coming Sunday. This year we've sent Pat down to check things out. This is his fourth year hanging around the event and he's gotten the chance to get immersed in the racing legacy. Join us for Pat's recap of Tech Inspection!
Last week we covered the 39th annual Colorado Concours d'Elegance here in Denver. If you didn't get a chance to catchup with all the fun we saw this time around, that's ok, I've made it a bit of a tradition to highlight my favorite car at the Colorado Concours each year. Last year, at the event I got to cover the 'Special Wishes' 1982 Slantnose owned by a friend of the shop. This time around we'll highlight a one-of-one rarity, and its long history. Join us as we meet Gilda, an icon of the 1955 Turin Motor Show.
