Mr Mike Wood,
I enjoyed stumbling on to your site and it brought back tons of memories! I was a good (best) friend of Butch Hannah and I have attached some photos that you might consider adding to your site. I am in a couple of them.  Sadly we lost my best friend/brother of almost sixty years a couple of years ago!  The Scotchman sponsored Butch's car and he and I would frequently have our race cars on display and judge customer cars on the weekend Butch was part of the pit crew for my ProStock Boss 429. The attached photo of me with King Kobra was taken in front of the Scotchman. I also
included a shot of her on her trailer in front of the Scotchman Coffee Shop. Butch and I were very close with Carl, the owner of the Scotchman, and before the 'official' auction when the Scotchman closed we were given the opportunity to pick out some of the memorabilia. I have one side of the Scotchman name on the large sign and the Mr Horrible Burger sign. In addition I have the Coffee Shop Parking sign and the 'Help Wanted' sign when they were hiring car hops. Finally, I have original proofs of Scotchman Coffee Shop menus that are perfect...they have never been folded for use. I have one of the outdoor speakers with tray and an assortment of the illuminated menus from several time periods. Many fond memories of some very good times with great people!
Keep up the good work!
Lee

                                                                                                                                      Story By Paul Bredenberg
   
   
An interesting short story. Last spring, a man named Jack Smith, Jr. called me from California, saying he is the son of the late Jack Smith who raced with the CARC from 1946 to 1951. He was also CARC President in '50 and '51. Jack, Jr. and his nephew, also named Jack Smith, were interested in his Dad's racing, so I dug up everything I had on Jack Sr. and asked some of the remaining old timers what they remembered. I put together a packet of pictures and program notes mentioning Jack. He was so grateful that I decided to build a model of the car to send to him. I got the car done in late summer but didn't get around to getting the decals finalized and printed until December. I sent him the model and received back a wonderful thank you card from his wife, Cynthia, telling me that Jack had died in September. She said that the model would be preserved as a family heirloom. Sad to receive that bit of information, but still glad to have honored this man's memory and contribution to local racing.
