A couple of years ago I was attending the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach. This is an annual classic car show with thousands of cars from around the country.

While at the show, the people from Classic Chevy Magazine approached me and said they had selected my car to do a photo shoot and write a feature article on my car. I personally thought that was quite an honor due to the many beautiful Tri Five cars at the show.

After thinking that was the end of a perfect day, I was informed that I could take my car for a lap around the Speedway. That was a thrill I will never forget.
