The Race Car Garage Project

.


.

.

.

The home owner is a retired now and loves to spend time working on his vintage 1958 race car
which has a Fuel injected Corvette 350 V8 engine.

He also built this red 1968 street roadster which he recently took to California to participate in a vintage road rally.

Now, he’s building a 1932 Ford convertible roadster from scratch.

I’ve had the pleasure of hot rodding a few cars myself so I immediately took an interest in his race cars.

While I worked on the project he shared a few stories about some of his cars and the races he’s been in.

..... about the vintage machinery and signs

.
... and about his Dad who also raced a similar car.


.

The shelf displayed his dad’s old helmet and goggles, ribbons with medals, pictures,

and vintage trophies with race cars on top.

As I and arranged them on the new shelf, I couldn’t help but stop and stare at them,
thinking there’s a lifetime of amazing stories staring back at me.

So much history compressed on to a 6 ft. pc. of melamine shelving.


.

There was this old Oak Mission style rocking chair sitting in the corner of the shop.

One day, I asked him if he would like me to restore it and make a new leather cushion.


.

But he said, ” No thanks, I like it just fine. It belonged to my dad and It’s actually quite comfortable.”

After that, I could almost imagine his dad sitting there watching him while he worked on his projects.

.

The garage face lift was part of a whole house remodeling project and included new windows, doors,

interior and exterior trim and paint, a cupola, new drywall, lighting, better attic access and storage,

and hanging all the signs and antique license plates.


.

But, it it turned out to be more than that to me.
.

Just as we were finishing remodeling the kitchen, The rebuilt 350 motor for the blue race car arrived from the machine shop and he asked if I wanted to help him install the motor and get it ready for the next race.

So, for 3 1/2 days I got to work side by side with him on the vintage race car, one of three in the world.
.
It felt good knowing he trusted me to help him. We had fun working together.

And, I’m glad to say, I didn’t break anything or drop a tool on the hood. Whew!


.

Shortly afterwards, he was back to racing in Wisconsin at the Road America Speedway.

He invited us to come and hang out in the pits.

.
There was a golf cart for us to use so we drove around checking out the cars ….What a blast!


.

At noon, the race track allows anyone from the pits to drive around the track or take a ride in a race car!


.

When he floors it, it pushes you back in the seat like a jet plane taking off and it takes a corner so fast,

.

....... makes my heart race just thinking about it! What an experience!
.

This is what it’s all about.
