Some Notable Redskins Rides, And Other Pictures

Posted by Matt Terl on August 22, 2010 – 12:50 pm

Today is the Redskins Rides Car Show at Redskins Park, sponsored by Eastern Motors. There’s a lot to see out here, and — if you’re reading this on Sunday afternoon — possibly still time to get here to see it, as the show runs until 7:00. If it’s later than that or you can’t make it out … well, here are a few pictures to make up for it.

That burgundy Impala is perhaps the most interesting vehicle in the players’ section. The piece of paper under the windshield indicates that it’s Andre Carter‘s, but he’s the second owner in the Redskins family; the car originally belonged to the late Sean Taylor. “My wife got it for me in the auction,” Carter explained. Robert Bassam of Eastern Motors helps to maintain the car for Carter, and the defensive end has even made some updates to the vehicle. These headrests are the most notable: Read more »

Fred Davis Has A Purple Challenger

Posted by Matt Terl on August 17, 2010 – 7:05 pm

With the Redskins Rides Car Show coming up this Sunday, it seemed like a good time to take a look at some of the players’ cars that might turn up at the show. And the bright purple Dodge Challenger in the parking really stood out. I assumed it belonged to LaRon Landry — a fan of both the color purple and interesting cars — but was quickly pointed to the correct owner, tight end Fred Davis.

“I got the purple ’cause it’s different,” Davis says. “Y’know, a lot of people don’t have that — they only made, like, 200 of ’em. So I had to get the purple Hemi, something with some speed on it ‘stead of driving the Benz all the time.”

“The Benz” is Davis’s S550, the car he bought after receiving his first pro paycheck. The 2010 Challenger SRT8 Hemi is the most recent acquisition. ” Read more »

Malcolm Kelly Talks Redskins Rides And That Pass From Last Night

Posted by Matt Terl on August 23, 2009 – 3:16 pm

Malcolm Kelly didn’t actually mean to be a part of today’s Redskins Rides event. Sure, his H2 was on display — clearly labeled, as all the Redskins’ cars are, with his jersey number in the windshield — but that wasn’t what it was doing here in the first place.

Redskins Rides Is This Sunday

Posted by Matt Terl on August 19, 2009 – 1:47 pm

This weekend marks the second annual Redskins Rides car show, presented by Easterns Automotive. The event takes place in the parking lot of Redskins Park and runs from noon until 7:00 on Sunday, with admission costing $15 for adults, $10 for kids over 3. It’s a chance to see the players’ cars, fan-submitted cars, some live music, and more. Last year’s event was a pretty good time, and — with the preseason game on Saturday — it’s a chance to make it a real Redskins-y weekend.

Tanner Cooley asked a bunch of players who drives the best car; this is the result. If you finish this not wanting to see Fred Smoot‘s vehicle in person, I’ll be shocked.

I’ll be there on Sunday too, so drop by and say hello. Read more »
