It seems much more recent but I was thinking today about the fact that it has been 12 years since I was graduating from high school and entering college as a freshman. I looked at the whole gamut of schools from the in state Georgia options all the way up to the Ivy League. Back […]
A special homage to an inspiring piece of automotive history showed up on eBay today. It is a replica (VIN B22BF8K146443) of the Transcon Medivac that Hal Needham and Brock Yates drove in the 1979 Cannonball that later appeared in the 1981 film.

In the 1972 running of the Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, Steve Behr and Brock Yates drove this beautiful 1972 Challenger. Read more about it here on the Cotton Owens Garage web site. It has […]
