Starting up the McDonalds' Cruise In

McDonald's 2011...

Glad to get back in the swing of things this Saturday Night for the local McDonalds' Cruise In on Hwy 81 in Anderson, SC.
Usually draws 150-300 cars.
Rough week this week with Ron's passing.

We've lost a good friend.

My good Friend Ron Shurkus passed away today after a year long fight with Asbestos Cancer. Last March he was given 3 months to live, and lasted a year. He was able to drive and enjoy his 64 Olds, drag race it, and even won 1st place at a car show.

He will be missed a bunch by me and a lot more folks. Great guy.

Ron founded Ye Olde Speed n Sport in Connecticut back in the 80s and sold it around 1991 and moved here to Anderson, SC. I will continue to keep his memory and old speed shop name alive here.
