My Virtual Car Museum
I like cars a lot. Here are some from my past and present.
My daily driver. Great truck – runs on biodiesel which makes me happy and will soon hit half a million kilometers!
We took this VW Van on a long and leisurely drive across the US and back with the kids in the summer of ’08 – what a great trip! Here we slept in it overnight near the Badlands in South Dakota.
My former daily driver. Great for beach outings and hauling kids, bikes and servers.
My Caterham Super 7 weekend racer. Very fun and fast.
A 69 Lancia Fulvia HF. It used to be my dad’s. He raced it at Hockenheim.
A 76 Ferrari 308 GTB, also my dad’s. It brings back great memories of driving to the Geneva car show every year with my dad when I as a kid.
The “family Gurgel”, I painted it red (used to be army green) and learned to drive in it. It’s from Brazil.
A 63 Ford Falcon, my first car purchase ($800), bought in LA when I moved to California.
The Falcon was “upgraded” to a 64 Volvo 544. One of my all-time favorite car designs.
My experiment in car exporting (I shipped these from California to Switzerland). Made a little money, but more importantly I got to drive each one for a while.
The Maserati Quattroporte. Wins the awards for best sound and best freeway cruising. Also shipped to Switzerland.
Diane and I got this 77 Cutlass Supreme on a whim and liked it so much that we used to fight over who got to drive it.
The Saab. Diane’s car when we first met. She drove and loved it for over 10 years.
The M3. My treat after selling our first startup. Had great fun racing it at Sears Point, then we had kids and I had less fun getting car seats in and out of the back.
