I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at

  2. Jon, can’t wait to see what Jason and Clarence have done with the Banjo Prototype! Like you, I want to see all the cars that have been hidden away or under restoration for years. I have no idea how many Talladegas and Spoilers are still left out there but I bet we have the largest gathering of them ever. The cars are great but it is all the terrific people that worked on these cars, owned them, raced them and loved them that are the real focus of this first ever Reunion! I talked with Rick Stanton in California and he is even bring out his outstanding Benny Parsons tribute race car with the BOSS 429! See you next week Jon!
