Wellborn Muscle Car Museum

Michael, the children, and I will be in Alexander City, Alabama for the pre-Grand Opening of the Wellborn Muscle Car Museum this weekend. We're really excited about it. Housed in a restored car dealership, the Museum is said to house over 80 immaculate muscle cars, including the famous K&K Insurance Charger Daytona, raced by legendary driver, Bobby Issac. For those of you who don't know, some of the land speed records that Bobby Issac achieved, still stand today!

We also have the opportunity to attend the Aero Warriors reunion at the Talladega Speedway. Seeing that many wing cars in one location promises to be something incredible! If that wasn't enough, on Sunday, we'll be taking in the Talladega 500 ... too cool! We've been to the Molson Indy in Toronto, visited the track in Indianapolis, exhibited at the Lowes Motor Speedway in North Carolina, and attended a number of drag races over the years. Plus, we've been to a full out smash up derby in up-State New York (including the infamous figure eight school bus race!) as well as going to Monster Truck Jam, and of course, breathed in the Firestone and Goodyear fragments that come with the massive tire burnout competitions at events like GM Carlisle, but we've never been to a Nascar race. All of us, kids included, can't wait!

Michael will be formally releasing his newest painting, Service Fit For A King, featuring Richard Petty's famous Petty blue #43, 1970 Superbird. It's the second painting in Michael's "Above Them All Series." With the excitement building with each of his new releases, a number of prints have already been presold. Since I am writing this in a hotel in Birmingham, Alabama, I don't have access to an image of the painting, but as soon as I do, I'll post it.

Have a great weekend. I know we will. - Linda
