A wet and wild weekend for Team Willie…Competing against 40 other vintage autos Team Willie finished in 12th place. Team Willie was also recognized with the Spirit of the Event Award.
The deluge of rain this weekend did not affect Team Willie’s spirit or performance.
Congratulations on a great weekend!!
See you all at the GREAT RACE!!

Every car nut wants to find that one special car buried in an old barn somewhere, not touched for years. Well…we were lucky enough to find such a car. An old barn, down in Florida, was kind enough to preserve a small piece of automotive history for us.
This 1956 Bellair was painstakingly cared for by its original owner. He kept meticulous records, which will accompany the car. These records include every part he purchased, every oil change made, and gasoline fill up. This gentleman only made minor modifications to the car. He added trim work and a small painting of the Road Runner on the side.
Road Runner, as we call her, was a show car in the 1960’s and is known to have been featured in an auto magazine of the time. We have been unable to find a copy to add to the car’s history, but we have been told by many people that the car was indeed featured.
The Road Runner is fully original, with the exception of the 1960’s show modifications, and unrestored.
Come by and take a look at this truly one of a kind car.

Thanks to our friends at Honest Charley’s Garage we had the opportunity to meet a couple of great guys from Marc’s Garage. While traveling cross country from San Antonio TX to Pigeon Forge TN, on the Vintage Air Tour, they were unfortunate enough to be bitten by a “lizard”, more commonly known around here as an alligator. This piece of tire wrapped around their driveshaft and disabled the car. Luckily they phoned Honest Charley and Greg Cunningham recommended they stop in and see us. After a quick repair and a short show and tell they headed out for Pigeon Forge and the Shades of the Past Rod Run.
