Several years ago, I was visiting ACBS member Neal Gapoff’s car collection/workshop and saw in the back on a trailer, a Gar Wood Speedster. The name really got me, Hi, Yo, Silver and the hook was set. I said to Neal if you ever want to sell it call me, he laughed and said, “never”.


And, they both said “I DO”!

On Saturday, October 24th ACBS NC/LT Chapter member, Rainee Stahr and ACBS member and Board Director, Doug Shone got married! They recently moved to Oregon and were married in a beautiful outdoor setting at the Applegate River Lodge in Applegate, OR. Be sure to send your wishes to this terrific couple. Congratulations you two!
