Richard gives Ryan Kerrigan a tour of his green machine

It’s been a little while since our last Redskins Rides blog post. We hope that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday with your family, friends, and loved ones. We couldn’t leave you guys hanging for long! Easterns Automotive Group has teamed up with the Washington Redskins once again for another edition of Redskins Rides. Ryan Kerrigan met with Richard at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to get an up-close and personal look at his unique whip. Richard is the proud owner of a lime green 1936 Chevy Coach. This coach is different from a sedan in that it is a two-door and that it is much more compact in size. Richard purchased this beauty about five months ago in Nashville, Tennessee. The unusual color caught his attention and ultimately led him to make the purchase. It has a brand new 350 fuel injection under the hood as well as a pristine cream interior. It’s clear that he has a great eye for cars because this was definitely an awesome classic car purchase. We want to thank Richard for taking the time to show off his custom Redskins Rides. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides in DC, Maryland, and Virginia community. Easterns and the Washington Redskins got you covered!

Redskins Rides – PJ & Val give Anthony Lanier II a tour of their tailgating truck

We’re back! Reporting live from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia where we just filmed a brand new edition of Redskins Rides. Redskins Rides is brought to you by Easterns Automotive Group along with the Washington Redskins. Easterns thought that the perfect person for this segment would be defensive end, Anthony Lanier II. With Lanier being such a tall guy at 6’6”, they definitely wanted to give him a Redskins Ride that he could actually relate to. He met his match with PJ and Val. These two are the proud owners of the super spacious 2008 Ford F-350 Lariat Super Duty pickup truck. The first noticeable attribute of the truck is how high it sits off the ground. The rims and tires are huge! Val purchased the truck in stock condition a few years ago from a friend. He has spent the last three years customizing the truck to fit his tailgating needs. Since being introduced to American football by a friend, Val loves traveling in his truck to different cities and attending various NFL games. We want to thank Val and PJ for taking the time to show us their custom Redskins Ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Kari gives Chris Thompson a tour of her custom 2016 Boss Hoss

Back again! This week we have a great edition of Redskins Rides in store for you all on behalf of Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. This edition is very unique because it is the very first time we have featured a trike. A trike is a 3 wheeled bike in this case it’s also in the form of a motorcycle. Kari met up with Chris Thompson of the Redskins at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to discuss her unique ride. Kari is the proud owner of a 2016 Boss Hoss 450 with a 1957 Chevy engine. It doesn’t get much more astonishing than that! The royal blue paint with the silver stripes makes it look like a beast. She gets a lot of attention on the road because most people are just blown away by the custom design and the fact that it’s a motorcycle on 3 wheels. Her favorite customization on the bike is the name “Sparkle” that she got put on the trunk. The reason she chose that name is because of her love for jewelry and sparkly items. This trike is amazing! We want to thank Kari for giving us an exclusive look at her custom ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Jim gives Chris Thompson a tour of his awesome 1956 Chevy Bel Air

A new week means we’re back to bring you a new edition of Redskins Rides presented by Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. Last night the Redskins won their game over the Seahawks so of course everyone in the DMV metro area is very excited. Among those that were ecstatic was Jim, a lifelong Redskins fan. Jim met up with Chris Thompson of the Redskins at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to discuss his very own Redskins Ride. Jim is the proud owner of a 1956 Chevy Bel Air (hard top edition). Shortly after Jim purchased the vehicle, he got it painted a custom burgundy metallic color with gold flakes in the paint. When the sun hits the paint it makes the car look so magnificent. We’ve been asking around to see if anyone has seen a Bel Air quite like Jim’s but so far the unanimous answer has been no. There are even Redskins flags on top of both windows that wave in the wind while the car is in motion. This entire project of customizing the car and making it personal has been a labor of love for Jim. It has become something that he thoroughly enjoys doing. He informed us that he has been a Redskins season ticket holder since 1967. Wow! There is no denying that Jim is a diehard Skins fan. Awesome ride! We want to thank him for giving is an exclusive look at his custom ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Daniel and Jesse show off both of their 1963 Chevy Impalas at Redskins Park

Hello, beautiful people! This week, we have doubled the fun for you all. Of course that means we have another edition of Redskins Rides but we have two amazing rides this time. We recently met with both Daniel and Jesse at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to see their awesome cars. They both own a 1963 Chevy Impala but they are both different from each other yet unique in their own way. Daniel purchased his 1963 Impala convertible back in 2005 and is a member of Individuals Car Club of Woodbridge, Virginia. He found the car in Ontario, Canada and brought it to the DMV area where he has been working on it ever since. The teal metallic paint job with the custom paint designs definitely separates this Impala from the rest. The part of this Impala that really makes it stand on its own is the custom aircraft hydraulic system that Daniel had installed in the trunk.

Jesse has owned his fire engine red Chevy Impala for about 12 years. The car caught on fire last year causing him to have to re-do the entire vehicle all over again. Like Daniel, his Redskins Ride also has a hydraulic system. He discussed the excitement that people have when they see the car on hydraulics. Most people have only seen hydraulics on television so it’s definitely quite amazing to see in person. Originally, Jesse’s plan was just to have the car painted plain red. The painter showed Jesse some custom paint panels that he just couldn’t decline. It all worked out in the end because you definitely won’t see another Impala like it. Amazing rides, fellas! We want to thank this gentleman for giving us an exclusive look at their rides. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

We’re back this week to bring you the latest edition of Redskins Rides presented by Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. Chris Thompson of the Redskins was recruited to speak to Maryland resident, John regarding his custom Redskins Ride. John is the proud owner of a custom 2016 Subaru WRX. Everything on the car is custom, which makes it very unique. The reason that John made modifications to his WRX is because he wanted a car that would be perfect for off-roading, drag racing, and of course every day use. The custom paint job on his WRX definitely has a burgundy/red undertone that is reminiscent of colors of the Redskins jersey. The racing seats definitely give the car that Need for Speed and Fast and Furious feeling. John told Thompson that one of his favorite customizations on this car is the custom Maryland flag mud flaps. It’s very apparent that John takes a lot of pride in being a Maryland resident. People ask him all the time how fast his car can go but he prefers for them to see for themselves out on the track.

Bill and Debbie show off their 1920’s Ford Model T Speedster to Chris Thompson of the Washington Redskins

We’re back again for week 6 of the Redskins Rides segment presented by Easterns Automotive Group along with the Washington Redskins. This week’s segment was conducted by Chris Thompson who a running back for the Redskins. He had the pleasure of speaking with Bill and Debbie who own a 1923 Ford Model T Speedster. Anyone that knows anything about cars knows how special and significant that the Model T is to the automotive world. The Ford Model T was named the most influential car of the 29th century in the 1999 Car of the Century competition. Bill and Debbie have a cream colored Model T that is in immaculate condition. The car only has three pedals for going forward, reverse, and breaking. It is gravity fed meaning that pressure riser only has to be used going up a hill. The pressure riser is what forces the fuel to the carburetor. These two have such a unique vehicle because it definitely is something that you don’t see on the road every day. It fits the definition of an antique car perfectly and will definitely make you turn your head when you see it. We would like to thank both Bill and Debbie for sharing their special ride with us.

This week’s segment is different than the others in that we have not just one ride but two.

Andrew has loved Batman since him and his wife got married over 40 years ago and he carried her around the house in a Batman costume. His love for Batman led to him and his sons opening a business called Batman Handyman Service in Loudoun County, Virginia. The women with Andrew in the video are his secretaries, Mary and Kris. These two are known as the Bat Ladies whenever they accompany Andrew. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 is complete with a 6.2L V8 engine and 650 horsepower. This ride is murdered out with a custom black paint job with burgundy accents, black wheels, and super dark tint. If there is any car that resembles the Batmobile, this is the one. The small details are what really make this car special such as the Batman art work, Batman logo headrest, and the memorabilia. Andrew also owns a custom Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle that he calls his “Batbike”. It is all black just like the Camaro with a splash of burgundy trim. Andrew even has a Batman helmet. It doesn’t get any more awesome than that! We would like to thank Andrew for sharing not only his two Redskins Rides with us but also his love for Batman. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides!

Craig and Robert show off their 1963 Corvette to Chris Thompson of the Washington Redskins

We’re back for the second week of the Redskins Rides segment that the Washington Redskins and Easterns have partnered up for. For this segment, Easterns recruited Chris Thompson who is a running back for the Redskins. Chris met up with Craig and Robert to talk to them and discuss their 1963 Chevy (Chevrolet) Corvette. There are several aspects of this Corvette that make is unique than some that one might see on the street. This car is 1 out of 10,594 Corvettes made in 1963 that have the split window in the back. This was also the only year that Chevy made Corvettes with the split window. Seeing a Corvette like this is rare in itself but owning one is almost unheard of. Craig and Robert purchased this car after it was previously in a wreck and re-built it from the ground up. The headlights on this Corvette also rotate down when not in use and then up when they are on. Sick! This is a true Redskins ride because the color of the car almost matches the color of the Redskins jersey that Thompson is wearing. We love it! We have to thank these two for giving us an exclusive look at their ride. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides!
