Tell us a bit about yourself: Mike and Lisa Ingelido. Mike bought this Europa from the original owner in 1981and, while never formally restored, it has been extensively updated and optimized both mechanically and cosmetically to be a reliable long distance driver and car show award winner. It is a joy to drive, especially in the fall as the mountains turn green and gold which happen to be Lotus colors. Being able to support a worthwhile cause is just icing on the cake.

Tell us a bit about yourself: Jeff Krueger has always been into cars, but about 10 years ago got his first Lotus. He loves the look of the cars and the ability to be able to work on them. With two boys ages 6 and 7, looking for a 4 seater car, he found the Elan Plus 2 to be a perfect fit. A car to work on with his boys and something they can also ride along in. He says “I am extremely grateful for the health and well-being of my kids and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend time then raising money for kids and driving with some British cars”.

$700.00

Tell us a bit about yourself: Tim Haas had a couple of old British cars when he encountered this Austin Healey that had been in a garage that caught on fire. While the car was not burned, some 2 X 4 lumber fell on it so Tim had the bodywork done and repainted it Healey Ice Blue over Old English White, rebuilt the head and has driven it on special road trips ever since. He looks forward to a weekend with the cars and kids instead of with the horses as is usual.

Team Name: Team FauxBrit

Year, Make and Model of Car: 2007 “English Ford” Shelby GT

Funds raised for the
Ranch so far:
$525.00

Tell us a bit about yourself: Steve and Carolyn Thomton. While I do have 3 English cars, an MG-TA and a couple of Austin Healey's, for reasons I won't bore you with I won't be driving one of those. Why a Shelby? Disregarding that I was fortunate to meet the legendary bigger than life Carroll Shelby while he still occupied this world, he was a storied driver for a number of English marques. His first race was in an MG TC, then he drove for Donald Healey's team on a number of occasions, including successful Bonneville World Record runs. He was a factory (ok, works) driver for Aston Martin and, of course, there is the AC Cobra connection. There's more but you get the idea... the Shelby name has a deep connection to English motoring cars. So, if you can't bring a British car to the party (Driving for Kids), it seems to me a Shelby is a legitimate substitute... at least in my fractured logic. I look forward to driving some pretty roads

Team Name: Team Infinity & Beyond!

Year, Make and Model of Car: 1964 Austin Healey 3000 MK II

Funds raised for the
Ranch so far:
$300.00

Tell us a bit about yourself: Andy Katz and Ro Fleury. Our Austin Healey is the first classic car that we bought together 14 years ago and it sent us down a rabbit hole of car collecting and car club activities. This hobby has brought us so much joy and adventure and we have been fortunate to share this with so many fun people. We are happy to be able to help Ross and Ann in giving back and are excited about our Drive for Kids. To Infinity & Beyond!

Tell us a bit about yourself: Art and Annette Siverling are long time Lotus owners whose cars have spent more time in the garage than on the road. These two seem to be in good working order so what better way to celebrate than to support a magnificent cause with wonderful people and interesting cars.
