To all in the collector car hobby: We lost another good guy on the first weekend of February, 2017, as our friend “Cowboy” passed away on February 4th. Our condolences to Paul’s family and many friends. Rest in Peace Cowboy. You’ll be missed by many!

May 16th of 2017, we lost another great “car guy”, Jerry Nemire. Jerry was a veteran open-wheel competitor who raced in all 3 USAC national divisions. Jerry’s father, Kenny Nemire was a stock car driver who died in a crash while racing at Toledo Raceway Park in 1957. Jerry’s grandson, Austin Nemire is following in his grandfather’s footsteps, currently an ARCA race car driver at age 17.
