1954 Ford F-100
This 1954 Ford F-100 belongs to Dave and Katy Ahrens. When they bought the truck several years ago, it did not look like this. It had been stored in a barn for long time and had evidence of a pretty rough life. After making the truck roadworthy, they drove it for about a year until Dave decided to "fix it up". As you can guess , one thing led to another and it received a total make over from one end to the other. It is painted the original color with a little polished stainless here and there for extra sparkle. The original seat has been recovered in cloth for comfort and shoulder harnesses added for safety. The next upgrade will be front disc brakes for added stopping power. Their next project is a fully custom 1956 F-100 for their granddaughter.
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 DZ 302
Mark wanted a Chevrolet Camaro Z28 during high school but waited 26 years before finally getting his wish. This is a 1969 Camaro Z28 with the original DZ 302 engine and drive train. The car has been going through a restoration over the last 15 years with the last work done a total front end rebuild. Mark received a Holley carburetor rebuilt kit for Christmas so next up is a refresh of the carb. The best thing about this car is driving it, listening to the glorious noise of the engine winding out at high RPM.

1970 Trans Am
This 1970 TransAm was rescued from going to the crusher in 1987.
Who would smash a numbers matching classic car?!?! They could not bear to see that!
Restored in 1988 to original condition from its dilapidated state, it has become the flagship of their little 'Firebird Farm'. It is a blast to drive, and even after all these years, can still carve up a corner with ease. Coming soon will be a 1971 TransAm, this one will be a Blue with White Stripe 455 H.O. Four Speed car, and someday, a 1973 Buccaneer Red tribute TransAm.
They kinda like TransAm's and all Pontiac musclecars!

Roy & Marilyn
1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Roy and Marilyn Rutz are the proud owners of a 1967 Olds Cutlass Supreme Sports Coupe with the Turnpike Cruiser option.
By 1967, the insurance companies and government regulators were getting concerned about the “horsepower race.” General Motors “voluntarily” imposed a 10 HP/100 lbs. limit on all their cars except the Corvette. Keeping with the spirit, Oldsmobile Division offered a “Stealth” version of their highly popular 442 muscle car. They used the standard 400 CID HC 442 engine but replaced the Quadrajet 4V carburetor with a 2V carburetor and reduced the horsepower rating from 350 to 300. They also changed the rear end ratio from 3.23:1 to 2.41:1 for better gas mileage. The rear end change probably had more impact on performance than the Carb reduction.
The performance enthusiast stuck with the 442 and those who wanted the most from their 29 cent a gallon gas went with the smaller 330 CID regular gas engine. Few cars were sold with this option and it was only offered for 67 and 68 (in reduced compression). This makes for a rare car today.
Roy and Marilyn’s car is Provincial white with black vinyl top. It is all virtually original down to the cloth bench front seat. Pictures show it sporting period “indy mag” wheels. Historically an Olds fan, Roy is also shown in a 1966 picture with his then new 442.

1957 Ford Truck
Chuck has had his truck for about 4 years now. He originally paid $1200 for it. He took out the old straight 6 truck motor and replaced it with a 302 that is bored out .40 over. It has a mild 351 cam and a 4 barrel intake from a '68 Mustang. All this is backed up with an automatic transmission. After taking care of some electrical and body issues, it's now a reliable and fun vehicle.

Matt & Sonya
1970 Chevrolet Camaro
The Green Dragon was born February 1970 as a Rally Sport/Super Sport in a far off land called California. Whereupon, she was then delivered to Williams Chevrolet of Colorado Springs.
When they found her, and she had been left outside derelict, neglected & unappreciated for eons, with her 350/300 HP heart removed and sitting forlorn in a dusty corner of a garage.
They acquired her with her scaly, peeling green skin and first started to nurture her back to health, with a Vortec headed 400 small block heart transplant. Which invigorated and revitalized her! She swiftly roared back to life with the fire, health and vigor due to all dragons...
Numerous minor & major surgeries throughout the years were accomplished with bringing her back her youthful vitality. The latest transformations were when their friend Bear strengthened her bones with the strongest unobtainium then followed by their friend Rick who applied copious amounts of Oil of Olay and massaging her scaly, peeling, green skin to a luscious, deep green hue not seen since the days of yore!
John & Claudia
1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
John and Claudia's car is a beautiful base model Camaro convertible, but the outstanding part is that this is a rust free, 45,886 mile Camaro which was in sheltered storage for the last 40+ years in Boulder, Black Forest and Calhan. The car had some minor damage to the front and rear end and the 327 engine was missing,
A 350 crate engine had been installed in the car prior to them purchasing it from the executors of an estate. Engine was removed and opened up only to discover it was a brand new engine, dated 1984 and had been sitting all these years. A new canvas top was installed, the powerglide tranny rebuilt. A new exhaust system was installed and did all the rest of the work fixing the car up themselves with no rust found including the floors which were also solid The interior is orginal. Seats and carpet were replaced as were the door panels. Dash is all original. .. They enjoy taking the car to events and just going for evening cruises during nice weather. Have put almost 2000 miles on it already.
1969 Mercury Couger (Goldie)
Judy acquired this 1969 Mercury Cougar she named Goldie in late 2017 from the third owner in Parker Colorado with only 62,125 miles on it the day she picked it up. Engine had been rebuilt by the previous owners friend in South Dakota but, unfortunately he overlooked some other critical issues like brakes, shocks, electrical, tie rods, etc. It had sat outside a long time and has required some ongoing tweaking. Slowly straightening things out with the help of her two mechanics. Goldie has a “so-so” paint job and an all original interior in good condition. A few more issues to be addressed and she’s good to go.
Alice and Jack
1972 Plymouth Satellite
Alice and Jack Lester’s 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring.
They ordered the Plymouth September, 1972 based on the flyer at the dealership. It is a Tahitian Gold Metallic (root beer) 1973 Plymouth Satellite Sebring B-Body.
The Plymouth was to replace their1964 Austin Healy Sprite because they knew they were going to start a family and a 2-seater would not facilitate their needs.
This daily driver was getting tired at 325,000 miles.
They decided to ship the engine & transmission to Jasper Engines & Transmissions in Indiana for a numbers-matching rebuild. Mechanically, the car is one-third factory original, two-thirds restoration with original manufacturer parts.
Nearly all the paint is original lacquer & most of the interior upholstery is factory original. This amazingly dependable car was a daily driver until 2014.
Sheldon and Sherry's 1956 Chevy Belaire
Sheldon found this car in an empty lot and it was later towed by a towing company.

It sat in his back yard until he retired and then had the time to restore it.
The restoration started in Sept. 2013 and was finished in April 2016.
The original engine, a straight six was seized up so, it was replaced with a small block 350 with a 4 barrel carb.
He built the transmission to a 400 Turbo Glide, installed front disc brakes and topped it off with American Racing Mags.
The rest of the body is all original including the chrome.
