He was an all star kicker at NE Guilford High School who never missed a field goal, musician, trophied pool player, fisherman, and father. A 29 time winner of The Big Dog Shootout at Piedmont Dragway in Julian, North Carolina. A race car owner and driver, his cars were well known regionally. Stories tell that his twin turbo Buick Grand National was finally banned from racing at Piedmont, as he couldn't be beaten. This led to further twin turbo bans. He was known to lift the wheels of his cars during starts and was nicknamed Superman, because he made his cars fly. His other race cars included several Buick Grand Nationals, a 63' Split Window Corvette in Superman livery, and a Camaro he called the Strawberry Rocket. He collected other cars and motorcycles, some of which are presented here.
Quality of fit and finish of restoration is excellent, with many custom modifications; recently serviced to include fuel system cleaning with carburetor rebuild, oil change, new battery, all four brake calipers and brake master cylinder; low mileage example with restoration completed in 2008; a photo book is included to document the restoration; lots of chrome and billet aluminum pieces; recently serviced, after remaining in storage for many years; runs and drives as expected.
Overall wonderful condition, with few areas of concern; undercoating to fender wells is peeling in places; A/C blows cold.
