Coming Soon!

As with many projects, dreams and reality often follow a different path.  Our "newest" project has been patiently waiting for some attention for 25 years.  As a young lad of just 15, and with help from my father, we hauled home the remains of a 1933 Ford Co...

Run by the East Coast Timing Association (ECTA), the Ohio Mile is a land speed racing competition held at Airborne Airpark in Wilmington, Ohio.  From a standing start, competitors accelerate for a full mile and their top speed is calculated by the time that it takes fo...

As it seems to go with all projects, the to do list seemed to get longer, rather than shorter as the Ontario 1500 approached.  My father needs to be commended for all of the hours that he put into preparing for the event, and that's on top of the thousands of hours s...
