Here at home base, the shop had our attention as we turned to and made it ready for a members tour of the National Association of Automotive Museums. They will be visiting the world famous LeMay Family Collection of Automobiles, located here in the Parkland area; then stopping in to see our 56′ long jet-powered race car.
