Today I am publishing My Car Quest with WordPress and away from Google. The new address is There are still a few bugs to be worked out so if you see something wrong let me know.

This is a good day to write about my Bizzarrini GT 5300.  I bought it in 2008 after a four-year search for the right Bizzarrini Strada. This car has won many awards over the past few years and has been on display in many of the top car show events in California since 2008. The original owner owned this car for 36 years and I am only the third owner.

I am especially pleased with the Hillsborough Owner’s Choice Award this past August – as I said before this is like winning an Oscar (voted the best by your peers).

This special Bizzarrini was featured in Sports Car Market Magazine in November 2008 and on the TV show “My Classic Car With Dennis Gage” on Speed Channel in July 2009. Yes, that is Dennis Gage below checking out the Bizzarrini wheels.

It was a treat being interviewed by Adam Carolla on the Adam Carolla CarCast in September 2009. No, I do not think he was drunk – he was just having fun.

Yes it is great fun driving this low slung aluminum bodied Corvette powered race car.
