Hi, racers...I'm a Racing Kinda Guy, I race em, build em, buy em and trade em! Glad to meet any other car and race enthusists. I have restored classic autos and raced since 1975. My first big race began in town when I was a kid,and ended with the cops bringing me home. When Dad got home it wasn't pretty!
I restore (rotissery) mostly 55, 56 and 57's ground up, any other old ones for the public and am the proud owner and operator of Classic Auto Restoration. You can see several my wife and I have restored and painted many of those in my profile photos. We have won many awards, attend many annual shows and/or race on weekends. Our restorations and paint speak for themselves...we strive for perfection and excellence in our cars. Take a look at our photos and see that paint shine!
My first drag strip race was in Harrison County, now race at Hardinsburg, KY and Beech Bend Park, Bowling Green, KY. The need for speed... is it ever fast enough? How many paracheuts do we need? Just picked up the latest race car in Denver and will have photos on here soon.
The love of the classics is a family thing. My wife, Terri Bruner Goodman, has been an artist/airbrush/portrait, etc. since right after high school. When she applied at a shop and the guys said she couldn't paint, she proved she could. She has won divisions of the Carl Casper Auto Show, Louisville, KY, been in several magazines, even has work in home such as Country Music star Lee Greenwood. In our photos, here, you can even see the original good ole' Murle signing one of her trucks. By the way, she grew up in a body shop with her dad, Spanky....he did just what I do....
We have a grown eighteen-year-old daughter who doesn't act it, Gena, drives a camaro, heading for college, graduating with honors and grades to get the college paid for herself... and a really WILD GUY, Sheady, who just turned eight. He is car-crazy and was parking and steering very well at 8 months! Now he has been promoted to golf cart chauffeur. Just asked me, "Dad, how old do you have to be to race?"
Oh, Lord, here we go again......."and Dad, can we put a big block in the golf cart, why not?"
