The Mayor of Pomona loves HH Magazine. Photo by Garrett Carter.
About a month back while we were away from the booth getting food, we came back to find the Mayor of Pomona sitting at our booth and reading the latest issue of HH. Needless to say, he loved the mag and ended up giving us a private tour of the NHRA Museum as well as a breakdown of the City’s historical facts. It’s always good to see that we can grab the attention of a diverse and intelligent audience and I’ll have more posts up shortly. The past few weeks have been mad crazy with cancellations and rescheduled shoots but we’re almost done with the next issue of HH as well as BBI. While I’d like to say that I’ll keep up more often on the blog, the bottom line is that there isn’t enough time in the day. Some have even suggested that I updated while I’m on the road but to be honest that’s when I get the most sleep. LOL….so thanks again for hanging in there and for supporting the cause.
The latest issue of Heavy Hitters Magazine is scheduled to drop in a few weeks so don’t miss out! This special collectors issue features lettering from our friend Big Sleeps and inside you’ll find more of the great stories you’ve come to expect from HH. Inside we’ve got the story of the young man that owns this Underground Racing 1,000 hp TT Lamborghini and inside his stable you’ll also find his Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V as well as a few of his past and present toys. There’s also coverage on Magnus Walker and his infamous collection of Porsches but even more interesting than all the material goods we showcase are the true life stories on the individuals who have created dreams and established empires. Stay posted and as always thanks for passing by the blog.
This Quattro in it’s final stage sported a tuned 5-Cylinder engine which developed 720 hp.
This Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO sports a true wide body that had people gawking at it’s ability to swallow the 14-inch wide wheels which it fitted all around. With its bold lines and clean stance, the permanent AWD Quattro definitely took people by surprise and showing of these four vintage race vehicles definitely added the “Oh shit” factor to the show. I’ll have more pics up later today and hope everyone has a great day!
My buddies Pauline & William from Florida with their 1987 Porsche 911 Cab at the Legends of the Autobahn. An interesting fact about this piece of Porsche history is the fact that they are the owners of a very rare M491 Turbo Body and chassis option which was produced in Summer Yellow. It was the only one produced and it’s fully documented and only has 36,000 miles.
There are shows and then there there is the show that everyone seems to want to get into and that “show”for the past few years has been “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering.” Quail has long been the talk of town and it’s a definite crown winner when it comes to exotic car gatherings – of course aside from Concours d’Elegance. Considered the Creme de la Creme of exotic car events by many experienced show goers, the price of the ticket alone should let you know that they don’t play. The show boasts an all star line up of cars and it’s a classy affair that should never be missed. I’ll have more pics from Quail but for now here’s a few flicks from Bugatti’s line up.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Love it or leave it….but this color combo is pretty dope.
We’ re up at Pebble Beach and the trip so far has been nothing short of EXHAUSTING. If you haven’t been able to attend one of their annual shindigs then do yourself a favor and add it to your bucket list. The various shows which are hosted throughout the week are held at the most luxurious places around town and the backdrops and scenery are nothing short of breath taking. Entry into the shows range typically range from $150 all the way up to $700 but the one show that’s free of charge – with the exception of a $10 parking fee – is the show over at Rancho Canada called Legends of the Autobahn. But don’t let the free admission fool you. There’s plenty to see and the ambiance is dead on point.
How’s that for a show venue?
Sitting pretty on the greens was this 1985 AMG 500 SEC factory wide body.
These classic Benzes are gaining in popularity and before you know it they’ll be climbing in price so if you ever wanted to add one of these to your vintage collection then now is the time to act. The rear flares on this beast are impeccable and the only other factory widebodies that have ever gained that much attention in the MB lineup tend to be those found on the classic wide body E500 (W124).
This was even more interesting…..the now infamous cassette trays. LOL….how times have changed.
Classic Alpine head unit.
I’ve been looking for all the older head units from Alpine, Pioneer and Kenwood and it’s nearly impossible to locate. If anyone has a lead on the older head units let me know.
Chris brought out his G Power Twin Supercharged BMW M5 and as expected he consistently attracted a crowd of folks who were both baffled and amazed. The HRE Wheels definitely won the approval of many and the G-Power kit threw plenty of grown ass men into a sheer state of arousal. LOL.
Ahh yes…the classic Porsche 356. Definitely one of my favorites.
Big Money lineup. The classic Mercedes Benz Gullwings.
