Los Alamos Auto Club Draws Cool Cars Downtown

Owner Tim Cox with his Caterham 7, which he purchased in 2014 in Ohio. He explains that the Caterham 7 is a street car with a lineage that goes back to race cars and has been in production since 1957. Cox co-founded the Los Alamos Auto Club seven years ago with Pat Yeamans. The group gathers in the parking lot at 15th Street and Central Avenue, 9-11 a.m. every Saturday, except the first Saturday of each month when they participate in the Cars and Coffee event in Santa Fe. The club will be out in force with their cars Aug. 12 at a gathering near the Tub in Central Park Square during the 2017 Fair and Rodeo. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com

Owner Mike Luna with his 1972 Stingray painted ‘Arrest Me Red’. Luna purchased the car in Mesa, Ariz. some 20 years ago and has been slowly restoring it ever since. He is now ready to sell the car but said he will only let it go to a good home. ‘I won’t sell it to anyone who intends to race it,’ he said. Luna can be reached at 505.412.0488. Photo by Carol A.
