Happy National Doughnut Day!

National doughnut day

The word ‘doughnut’ can mean different things depending on its context. Most people think of the word and sweet fried dough usually in the shape of a ring or ball comes to mind. Other people might think cars and shifting into first gear holding the gas down and turning all the way either to the right or left causing the vehicle to spin in circles, might be your kind of donut… However, today, June 1st marks National Doughnut Day and it is about food not cars.

 National Donut day began during World War I when the Salvation Army sent over 250+ female volunteers to France to provide servicemen fresh coffee, tea, pastries, pies, breads, and of course Doughnuts. They became known as “Doughnut Girls.” The tradition carried on into World War II, the volunteers who helped serve the servicemen were referred to “Doughnut Dollies”. The United States Marine Corps’ birthday was also once referred to as National Doughnut Day. Even though it was just the military branch’s birthday, it is said the American prisoners of war at Son Tay Prison Camp convinced the Vietnamese guards it was a holiday in hopes to trick them to give out doughnuts in honor of the occasion.

Featured Car Donation of the Week: 1972 Porsche 914 Race Car for Colorado Public Television

February 10, 2016

Author: S.A. Stevenson

We’ve got a real unique car donation to highlight this week, we’ve received a 1972 Porsche 914 for Colorado Public Television. This vintage vehicle has been modified into a Race Car and was built by Steamboat Motor Sports! We’re currently auctioning this featured car donation on eBay.

This Volkswagen and Porsche collaboration is one of the most well balanced sports vehicles in history. This specialized vehicle was built by Steamboat Motor Sports with numerous aftermarket modifications. Information on the left door pillar suggests that the vehicle has a production date of November 1973 and that the engine within it is most likely a 2.2 or 2.4.

Unlike the models produced between, 1970 and 1972, this vehicle features bumper guards that were added to the front of the car. This superb ride has fine brakes, boasts phenomenal steering, and as you can see: bright period colors suit the car well with its vinyl interior.
