Thanks to Josh for working with me on these two amazing cars. 1955 Chrysler Vin #1 raced by Vicki Wood at Daytona. Also, Norm Thatchers 58 300D factory stick car that was raced at bonneville. Josh assembled the history on these cars, a pain staking process. The 58 will stay in its original condition, only adjustments would be for safety so it can be driven. The 55 will stay as is for most of 2019, but will go in for restoration to put it back exactly as it was when raced by Vicki.

Nice addition to the collection Mike. You must have done some sweet talking to Josh to secure these amazing cars.
What makes this special is you amassing this incredible collection with the intent to display them to us. Cant wait to get back to the States to come see your museum. Steve.

It's in NC. Working on the website, but my business stuff has been busier than expected so it got pushed to the back burner.
