The Mystery of the Amphicar

Posted by Pat Curtin on July 2022

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.

Tech Inspection - Pat at Pikes Peak

Posted by Pat Curtin on June 2022

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!

Getting to know Gilda

Posted by Pat Curtin on June 2022

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.

The Summer of Dry Ice

Posted by Pat Curtin on June 2022

As you may know, way back in 1991 our team started with just Jack and Trina detailing cars here in Cherry Creek. With Jack's 20+ years' experience working around his dad's shop, he got the chance to get hands on with many icons and legends. By the time Jack and Trina started 'Country Club Auto Detailing' they had become well-versed in the nuance of detailing paint. We've continued to keep up with the times and often utilize new techniques on the forefront of detailing technology. Of course, we've chatted about the Dry-Ice process before, this time we'll highlight two recent detailing jobs here in the shop. Join us for the Summer of Dry Ice.

Jaguar XKE Jamboree

Posted by Pat Curtin on May 2022

Here at Farland Classic Restoration the joke is always "They show up in pairs". This time around we have a couple cool cats into the showroom for consignment and one just stopping by. These three are all great examples of the Jaguar XKE or E-type, famously called "the most beautiful car in the world" by Enzo Ferrari. We figure he wasn't counting his "race cars".

Either way, let's dig into these cool cats!
