Built With Speedway Motors: Raymond's Model A

Add Article To List

My dad started me in this crazy car life that we are both still involved with. In the early years of my life (starting about 4 or 5) he started by letting me hangout in the garage and help on his car. On weekends we were at car shows and drag races, if not working in the garage. My dad is a very talented painter and body man.

He and my mom gave me my first car at the age of 13, it is a 1966 Chevy 2 Sedan. I still have the car now at the age of 51. It has been through many changes since it was given to me. We are now working on a complete rebuild on his 1931 Model A. He and my mom have had this car since I was 4 years old. It too has had lots changes through the years. But this build now is going to be unbelievable.

All of our work is done by friends and family, with lots of blood, sweat, tears and beer. The car community has given us a great group of friends and family. My dad has always went out of his way to do what ever he could to help anyone out. Lots of Speedway parts used on both of our cars. I could go on and on with my praise for him and everything he has done for me over the years. To say I am grateful is an understatement. My dad is an inspiration to me and my best friend. Thanks for taking the time to read this. It has put a smile on my face while typing it. -Lee
