The Cuyamaca is Safe in San Diego for the first time in 102 years.


April 5, 2016 by Madison Kirkman

The “Cuyamaca” arrived in Ramona safe and sound Sunday, March 20th all the way from Anchorage, Alaska. That’s quiet a feat as it is. We’d like to thank everyone who has donated to the cause for their help, we couldn’t have gotten this far without your help. We are just starting the project however, and we are going to need money for Phase 2, the documentation, stabilization, and research stage. This should take no longer than 6 months and in that time, we may start pulling apart the car to preserve what’s left of the body panels. We will take measurements of the body as it sits, and then the first addition to the new frame work, the new Knife-Edge nose and to replace the beam that outlines the frame. It has taken a beating from the weather of Alaska and needs to replaced. The nose will be rebuilt in place, while the rear end of the car is reworked using the original material. This will require a major amount of work. This is the first step in rebuilding the car, and we need your help to complete. The cost will be in replicating the missing framework, so we can use your help in the form of donations or time to rebuild the car from the ground up. Thank you for your help. – Madison Kirkman
