Memory Lane Museum

We recently visited the Memory Lane Museum in Mooresville NC. The web site suggest a little more than it delivers. The museum is large and has a lot of cars and stuff in it but is poorly kept. When we arrived they had to turn the lights on because no one else had yet visited […]

David Pearson, We will always miss you.

Today, I woke up learning of the loss of David Pearson. Earlier this year our Talladega Spoiler Family lost Dan Gurney and now David Pearson.

Lee Holman and Fireball Roberts Race Car

Katrina and I recently attended the Trump Charlotte Concours d’Elegance held in Mooresville, NC. We had a rewarding show and saw a tremendous number of outstanding cars.
