Mike Goyda  The leading source for vintage hot rod and drag racing memorabilia. 717-823-7564 http s://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Li5BTKd7fCU&feature=share

Original box top artwork for the Hubley Hot Rod. I bought this year's ago from the gentleman who pulled it out of the trash at the Hubley factory here in Lancaster in 1964.

The world lost a treasure.

I saw this shirt the first time, 15 years ago in a museum exhibit. I tracked down the owner and told him that if he ever wished to sell it, I had to have it. Today was the day and I drove through a snow storm to get it but, damn, it's a pisser.

Nice trophy won by Ron Rivero driving the K&G fueler at the Gold Cup Championships held at Niagara Drag Strip on August 25, 1966.

One of my favorite crew shirts.

This week just keeps getting better. Got this NOS 1935 sign last night thanks to my good buddy Chris Hall @chris_hall_antiques

Many years ago I bought the sign you see on the left. It provided directions to Pendleton's Speed Shop in Shelby, NC. I was unaware at the time that I was buying only 1/2 the sign. Sometime ago I had posted a photo of it hanging in my garage. Recently I was contacted by the son of the gentleman who had the other 1/2. They have now been reunited.

In 1965, Kenny Safford and Don Gaide took their fueler, dubbed the "Shark Car" to Hawaii on tour. Milodon made up t shirts for the entourage. I got this from Kenny many years ago.

Since my children were old enough to develop their own tastes they have asked if they could keep things that I would bring home with the intention of keeping for myself or selling. They have great eyes for objects so I "lost" a lot of stuff. Now my granddaughters have inherited that "eye". I was going to put this lamp in my office. I've been behind the 8 Ball a few times in my life so it seemed appropriate. Then my granddaughter saw it. It is now in her room.

Another important piece of Southern California hot rod history. This is part of my personal collection.

Nothing to say other than I am fortunate to have this in my collection.

Many years ago I bought all of Broadway Bob Metzler's Great Lakes Dragway memorabilia. He had a closet full of his t shirts that he used to wear at the track. He did not want to part with them but was kind enough to gift this one to me. I laugh everytime I look at it. A nice memento of one of drag racing's real characters.
