The sun is finally out and shining warmly over the forest these days and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Brickyard Invitational 2015
So very excited to announce that our application to join the SVRA 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on June 10th - June 14th has been accepted! We are so thrilled to be racing our green and orange 914/6 there again. We will again be joined by our friend, John Crusoe, in his black 914/6 but this year we will be joined by John Forbes' son Cody as a co-driver.
It was a dream of John Forbes' to share the experience with his father of driving at Indy. His father has long since passed but last year John finally raced at Indy and he had a photo of his father on the dash so he was with him to experience it. This year he gets to pass on that experience to his son while John's grandson cheers them on.
Closed for the rest of the Week
In observation of our dear friend, Bud Merrill's funeral our shop will be closed Thursday, February 5th and Friday, February 6th so we may attend his services. We will reopen on Monday, February 9th. Have a great weekend.
Black Forest Racing Family Addition
Recently, a friend joined us at a track day with his street car just to get a feel for racing and was bit pretty hard by the racing bug. He has since then, researched and decided on purchasing his first race car to join our race family at the tracks. Bob Cunningham and John drove down to Florida to purchase and haul back Bob's new baby and bring her home. The car was formerly owned by Chief Wells, who is retiring from driving at the young age of 79! Chief Wells said if he could still get behind the wheel he wouldn't have let it go. We want to say a big THANK YOU to Chief Wells for trusting us to carry on the race with your beautiful car and Welcome to our family, Bob, we hope to make many exciting and happy memories this race season!
