Ramshorn Rally 2021


This past week we took part in the Ramshorn Rally. It’s an annual favorite. This marque Porsche event is open to 1989 and older cars. Outlaws are welcome. Entries are limited thirty cars. The event started in Gateway, Colorado (50 miles southwest of Grand Junction) and ended in Grand Junction, CO.
The route started by driving the 30-mile stretch of red rock cliffs along the Dolores River. Over the next five days we ventured into Southwest Colorado up the box canyon into Telluride, then back toward the Four Corners region and through the vast sandstone buttes of Monument Valley.
We continued down into south central Utah through the white domes and cliffs of Navajo Sandstone in Capitol Reef National Park, the spectacular cliffs and terraces of the Grand Staircase-Escalante area, passing by the crimson-colored hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, and the steep red cliffs of Zion National Park. From there we traveled south through the great expanse of escarpments which make up the plateau of Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. Finally, we made our way back north past Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam before reaching the end of our route in Grand Junction. It’s great to be taking part in events again!

Malamut Museum cars featured in Tarantino film

Fun night on the set last night in downtown LA with the Malamut Museum cars for Quentin Tarantino’s film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. This scene was in Italy, 1969.

We saw Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie. The set crew jumped on people with cameras so no shots of them unfortunately. We sent several cars to various sets for the film. For more photos, please visit this link.

Malamut Museum open house a big hit with the car community

We had a BIG turnout last weekend at our open house last weekend! This year’s open house included several car clubs: Redline Corvette Club, Audi Club, Mercedes Club, AAC. Also in attendance were members/followers of Bringatrailer.com, Conejo Cars and Coffee, and many others. This has probably been one of our biggest events to date.

Along with the displays in the museum, pizza, and the band playing, there was also a really good showing of classics in the parking lots and streets surrounding the museum. Check out more photos from the event here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmprsRUi

San Marino Concours

It was a beautiful day for a show yesterday at the San Marino Car Classic. We brought our Honda 360 (a recent acquisition from France) and the Toyota Sport 800. As reported earlier, we took second in class with the Toyota. The Honda had a lot of admirers.

The show had well over 300 cars entered. There was something for everyone. Lacy Park is a great venue. It’s a very large park with lush landscaping. It has several alcoves around the perimeter that allow several of the different classes to be placed. When wandering through the grounds, it’s almost like several smaller shows taking place at the same time. In addition to the regular entrants, Adam Carolla brought out his collection of former Paul Newman race cars.

Ramshorn Rally 2018


We recently brought the 911 RS Porsche hotrod up to the Ramshorn Rally. The 2018 Ramshorn Rally route is an accumulation of several motorcycle routes that were scouted and run in the last couple of years. This year we explored western Colorado with the opening night in Gateway Canyons Resort. Our route took us as far south as Santa Fe, New Mexico. We drove the famous San Juan Hwy that crosses Coal Bank Pass, Molas Divide and Red Mountain Pass. The twisty road along the rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River is an amazing road. We went from red rocks and desert to 11,000′ passes above timberline.

Roadtrip to Jamul


We recently took an endurance one day road trip to Jamul, CA to pick up some new acquisitions for the museum: a 1967 Toyota Sport 800, two vintage Honda motorcycles, and some memorabilia. The traffic on the way was a little rough. Jamul is south east of San Diego. Pulling a trailer also limits the options for saving time. We left the museum at 11:30am and didn’t return to the museum until almost 2am! We think the purchase was well worth the drive. The car and the bikes are all in beautiful condition. Check out the video of the Toyota leaving its former home.

Luftgekühlt 5


We brought the Porsche 911SC RS Tribute car out this past weekend to Luftgekühlt 5, a show for air-cooled Porsches.

The Luftgekühlt brand is the brainchild of two-time Le Mans winner Patrick Long and noted Southern California creative director Howie Idelson. A true Porsche happening, Luftgekühlt is an experiential car culture event centered around a tightly curated list of historically significant or interesting cars.

History buffs will be aware that the initial series of aluminum-bodied 356 models were constructed at an old sawmill in Gmünd, Austria. As a tribute to that, the show took place in a lumber yard in Torrance, CA.

La Jolla Concours


We brought the Mazda Cosmo and the Mazda 360 out for this past weekend’s La Jolla Concours event. Former owner of the cars and all around great guy, Glen Roberts, was also at the show. Glen restored the cars. While at the show, he made some adjustments to the Cosmo and also talked the cars up with the judges. The Cosmo ended up taking first in class. You can’t have two “first places” in the same class. The 360 took second place. It must have been difficult for the judges to make a decision because they are both perfect cars.

Discovery Channel TV shoot

Holy Land 1000


Last month we shipped the green ’64 Porsche (the same car that was in Japan for a rally) to Israel for the Holy Land 1000 Tour.

Approximately 60 vintage cars participated in this unique road event. Driving 1000 miles through the land of Israel in six days allowed participants to experience the remarkably diverse culture, climate and topography of Israel.

The tour departed the Mediterranean coastal city of Tel Aviv, through the beautiful terrain of the Negev desert, the snow caps of the Golan Heights, then dropping to the lowest point of earth – the Dead Sea. We then visited the Red Sea town of Eilat, drove along the Sea of Galilee and visited the must-see cities of Jerusalem and Nazareth. Our voyage took us through mainly rural areas where the driving and roads were top notch.

The Peninsula Tokyo Rally Nippon 2017


We recently took part in the The Peninsula Tokyo Rally Nippon 2017 with the 1964 Porsche 356 C that we shipped to Japan. The event brought classic-car enthusiasts from around the world together. The 4 day journey took us through some spectacular scenery across the highways and hillside passes of Honshu Island from Kyoto to Tokyo. The rally spanned a total of 1,000 kilometers, or 620 miles. 80 pairs of drivers and passengers of beautifully restored vintage cars took part in the event.

The Citroën 2cv gets some love


While visiting the museum with the Tour Americal, Citroën guru Frank Elsermans from Belgium gave our Charleston 2CV a little love.

2-day Open House is a big success!


This past weekend’s 2 day open house will go down as one of the best. We had a large group from Belgium that was on a tour half way across the US and made the museum one of their final stops on their long journey. They shipped over 80 cars from Belgium.

In addition to the group from Belgium, we also welcomed members from PCA, the Corvair Club, several members from Bringatrailer, The Checkered Flag 200, AACA Socal, Central Coast British Car Club, the Petersen Museum
and several others.

Visitors were treated to breakfast and dessert crepes made to order and a different band playing each morning. Mike even stepped in with his guitar on both days and joined the band for a couple of tunes.

Open house: Cars & Coffee After Party – March 25, 2017


Cars and Coffee After Party: We had a really big turnout for yesterday’s open house at the museum. After the local Cars & Coffee event, the Corvair Club, Corvette Club, and several people who were attending the event caravaned over to the museum for a visit. The collection of cars parked along the streets outside the museum was just as fun to check out as the cars inside. The museum provided pizza and snacks to all.

1965 Ford Mustang added to the collection


We recently purchased this 1965 Ford Mustang from original owners John and Demetra. The car had been in the family for 52 years. Demerta drove it, her husband drove it and their two sons drove it. It had served the family admirably over those years. Demetra had a remarkable journey with this car. It took her several months to finally purchase a much loved Mustang, but she wanted air and the first group was a 6. When she saw this car In front of Hutchings Ford in Arcadia, CA. she made a quick left turn and the rest is history. The car had air, was a great color and had the distinction of a white stripe. As a young female, all car salesman wanted to sell her a pink or light blue car….She resisted and hit the jackpot with “her car of choice”. Demetra and her husband are getting older now, therefore, thought it is time for the car to find a new home, rather than just going to Ralphs for milk. We will give it a good home. We will keep it original and only plan to tidy things up a bit.

The Toyota S800 arrives

Mike has always found the Toyota S800 a must have for the micro car collection. He dreamed of pairing the 2000 GT & the S800 together in the museum. Look for it to make its debut along side the Toyota 2000 at the Sherwood Country Club Concours February 26th.
