Sparky & Shirley Shriver

Sparky, Shirley and their daughter Shelby.

Charged with the passion of searching for a warmer climate and retirement goals, Sparky, Shirley and our daughter Shelby sold our properties in Arvada Colorado and proceeded to transplant to beautiful Estrella Mountain.

 39 years of service with the Arvada Fire Department for Sparky and 45 years of hair styling for Shirley was a delightful sufficiency for the both of us.

Enjoying friendships with others has always been a goal of mine which is expressed by sharing the several muscle cars and hot rods I have been fortunate to have own.

My dedication as one of the founding fathers of the annual Hot Times Kool Cars show in Arvada gave me the opportunity working with metro firefighters and friends volunteering with the common goal of organizing one of the largest single day car shows west of the Mississippi.  For 17 years this charity extravaganza was dedicated to the Children’s Hospital Burn Center in Denver which has been one of my favorite memories.

“Street Rods Forever”

Sparky Shriver

Sparky holding the trophy he earned for slot car racing when he was in the 7th grade. In addition to the award he qualified for the national event.
Sparky’s first car was a ‘63 Nova and when he saw this one in need of restoration he approached the owner about buying it. The elderly gentleman said it wasn’t for sale and Sparky left but not before giving him his business card. Three days later Sparky got a call from the man’s son who said that his father had passed away the evening Sparky and that he had told him about Sparky’s visit. Sparky ended up purchasing it and restored it to its award winning condition.
