HHR SS Sunday, Here's the Go-Go out front of one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in San Diego, Don Tommy's. We like to grab something to go usually and then drive about a mile west and go sit on the beach in Ocean Beach. Good times! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #DonTommysMexicanRestaurant #DonTommys #SanDiegoCA #sandiego #california #ca #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletHHR #HHR #ChevroletHHRSS #HHRSS #ss #300bhp #blurple #BlueMysticFlash #MysticFlash #BlueFlashMetallic #blue

Honey, I'm Home! ๐Ÿ“บ I dropped by the Brady Bunch House today and I was hoping for a better shot than this but what the heck, I'm posting it anyway! Yes, that's the ZR1 parked in front of "4222 Clinton Way" where you would have more than likely saw a Plymouth station wagon parked that was driven by Mike Brady. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #bradybunchhouse #bradybunch #TheBradyBunchHouse #thebradybunch #4222ClintonWay #StudioCityCA #studiocity #california #ca #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue

Fast Friday, The ZR1 sitting outside of the original El Tarasco location in Manhattan Beach, California. This was the very first time that we took the Corvette out after the new color matched Morimoto headlights were installed. The car looks awesome! I got mine at @vettelights and that's were you can get yours! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #ElTarasco #elporto #manhattanbeachca #manhattanbeach #california #ca #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #FastFriday #Morimoto #vettelights

We went for a nice walk around a couple of nice parks in Los Angeles, California. This picture was taken in Echo Park very near Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. That is DTLA behind us as well. This is as well very near filming locations for the TV show "Charmed" and "The Fast and the Furious" movies. Echo Park has also been used over and over for filming for many years. ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #echopark #losangelesca #losangeles #la #california #ca #ducks #turtles #Walking #blisters

Fast Friday, The ZR1 overlooking Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California on a beautiful day. I drove out for a bit of business that day and I started early to beat the nasty, everyday, slow moving parking lot traffic on the 405 here in Los Angeles but I still got caught in some of it. I left early enough I ended up with a bit of time on my hands before my the time that I was to be there so I stopped in for some breakfast at Denny's. They have a complete wall with a shot of this scene of Magic Mountain behind the Corvette and I was inspired. After I got done with my meal I drove up a hill and I figured out a place to recreate the shot. I love all of the roller coasters in the scene but I have the best ride! I love the shot! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐ŸŽข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #sixflagsmagicmountain #sixflags #magicmountain #valenciaca #Valencia #california #ca #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #FastFriday #rollercoasters #vettelights @vettelights

So, if you've been watching HGTV's "A Very Brady Renovation" where they took the real house and turned the insides of the house to what we all saw on TV that was filmed completely on a sound stage. Tracey and I have been following the show. These are a couple of shots that I managed to take while I was there. The Brady Bunch house had a fence around it but I managed a decent shot of it taken over the top of it. The second shot is the house right next door that HGTV used for headquarters to plan out the renovation of the Brady house. As I have always known that the house was real and that it was in the San Fernando Valley, watching the HGTV show about the renovation piqued my interest in finding it. It's actually just a couple of miles from the hospital that I was born in over in North Hollywood. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿก๐Ÿš๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #bradybunchhouse #bradybunch #TheBradyBunchHouse #thebradybunch #StudioCityCA #studiocity #california #ca #hgtv #averybradyrenovation

TBThursday, Here's a shot of me with downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) behind me across the old parking lot for the Staples Center which is just out of frame to my left. This was taken in November 2005 and in the sky overhead is the Goodyear Blimp "Spirit of America" flying by. The parking lot behind me is of course now LA Live that was opened in early 2008. This picture of me was taken just after the ground breaking a couple of months before. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #losangelesconventioncenter #losangelesca #losangeles #la #LALive #staplescenter #goodyearblimp #spiritofamerica #tbthursday #TBT

First shot of the ZR1 with the new color matched Morimoto headlights that look like C7 headlights. I've had a bit of time on my hands lately and I purchased these lights a few months ago, so I finally installed them. Of course as when everytime I take something apart on this car I find things wrong with it. This time I found several and quite a few relating to the damage I had repaired last summer, but I took my time and I fixed about 99% of the things that I found while I changed out these headlights. The top picture is the before and the bottom one is the after photo. I don't know about any of you, but I REALLY like these new headlights and they perform WAY better than the stock ones. I got mine from @vettelights ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #DelAireCA #DelAire #california #ca #hawthorne #HawthorneCA #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #MorimotoHeadlights #Morimoto #Oracle

TBThursday, This week I share a shot of me in Petra, Jordan in April 2004. Behind me are several of the tombs carved into the soft sandstone all around the area. It's a pretty spectacular experience walking around this historic place. ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŒž #petrajordan #petra #Jordan #tbthursday #TBT

CTS-V Cadurday, The Caddy sitting in front of the Mission San Xavier del Bac in Tucson, Arizona. This is the oldest intact European Structure in Arizona built between 1783 to 1797 and is a Catholic Church located on the Tohono O'odham Nation San Xavier Indian Reservation. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜โ›ช๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #sanxaviermission #MissionSanXavierdelBac #missionsanxavier #tucsonaz #Tucson #arizona #az #cadillac #caddy #CadillacCTSV #CTSV #690bhp #RedObsession #CarbonPackage #LuxuryPackage #ChromeWheels

Fast Friday, The ZR1 sitting in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium with Downtown Los Angeles, California in the distance. This is another location used to film scenes in The Fast and Furious movies including the very first one. I just love the view from that spot. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #dodgersstadium #DowntownLosAngeles #dtla #losangelesca #losangeles #la #california #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #FastFriday #fastandfurious #thefastandthefurious

TBThursday, How about an old grainy shot of my 1991 Camaro Z28 just after I took delivery of it at the end of that year. I took it for a drive up to Birmingham, England from RAF Upper Heyford where I was stationed at the time while serving in the US Air Force. I found this, what looked like, old church ruins and stopped for a quick picture. I remember that driving this car around the UK was like being a rock star because the car attracted so much attention everywhere I went and nobody knew what it was! Once, I was driving through a little village with very tight and small streets and a guy walking on the sidewalk, heading the same way that I was going and on my side of the road heard me coming down the road. He did a double take look over his shoulder at the car with his mouth open and then tripped and fell right in front of me onto the road! I stopped, of course, and got out to see if he was alright and he jumped up and said "WOW! What kind of a car is that?" I laughed and told him what it was and he didn't have a clue. Funny story though! ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง #birminghamuk #birmingham #england #uk #chevroletcamaro #chevroletcamaroz28 #camaroz28 #camaro #z28 #arcticwhite #tbthursday #TBT

TBThursday, Here's a shot of me on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy taken in July 2004. I was wearing my favorite souvenir from that trip. My Fila shirt with a picture of a red Ferrari 125S "Piacenza" on it. This of course is the very first car to bear the Ferrari name. I remember when I was a kid going to Italian food restaurants and seeing scenes similar to the one behind me in this shot and dreaming about what it must be like to be there. I can tell you now that it was beautiful! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿšค๐Ÿ˜ƒ #veniceitaly #venice #italy #thegrandcanal #grandcanal #grandcanalvenice #fila #Ferrari125S #piacenza #firstferrari #tbthursday #TBT

Fast Friday, To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the National Corvette Museum this weekend I share a couple of shots of the ZR1 at the NCM in Bowling Green, Kentucky on both visits that it was driven to the museum. The first shot was taken while parked in the "Corvettes Only" area the first time in August 2015. This was during our trip home to LA with our newly purchased Corvette that we picked up at Hendrick Performance in Concord, NC. The second shot was taken right next to the museum in August 2016 on our Corvette's return trip. This was during the trip that we made out to come see my grandson for the first time who lived just down the road near Nashville, Tennessee. We drove the ZR1 from California and eventually all the way to the east coast and then back. A really fun trip! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #nationalcorvettemuseum #NCM #CorvetteMuseum #BowlingGreenKY #BowlingGreen #kentucky #ky #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #638bhp #688bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #FastFriday @corvettemuseum

TBThursday, A look back to the very first time that I went to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky in mid January 2009. I was heading back home to LA from Chicago and I took a little side trip that led me to this mecca of Corvette's. In the first shot I am standing in front of the line of newly manufactured 2009 Corvette's that are ready for the "Museum Delivery" while I was there. This is an option for any new Corvette when bought new unless you buy one off of the dealership floor. Note that 3 of these are ZR1's. The second shot I am in front of the one that stole my heart that day. A 2009 Jetstream Blue Corvette ZR1. Because of this one car being there that day that I was at the NCM is exactly why I own the 2010 brother of it today. On September 2nd 1994 the National Corvette Museum opened its doors for the first time and of course that means that this year is the 25th Anniversary. I saw on the news this morning that a huge caravan of Corvette's left Pasadena, California heading to Bowling Green for the celebration next weekend. Tracey and I are proud Lifetime Members of the museum and we wish that we could go and celebrate this milestone but I thought that I'd contribute this memory instead. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #nationalcorvettemuseum #NCM #BowlingGreenKY #BowlingGreen #kentucky #chevy #chevrolet #ChevroletCorvette #corvette #Vette #c6 #corvettezr1 #zr1 #638bhp #BlueDevil #JetstreamBlue #victoryred #atomicorange #cybergrey #black #tbthursday #TBT @corvettemuseum
