I've added a car show link for the Ye Olde Car Show, check it out for all the most up to date info!
Returning after 23 Years, the last show was held in 1990 in Connecticut. That is where the Real Speed Shop existed, one of the last of its kind, Ron held a car show from around 1985-1990 with it expanding to upwards of 300 cars in the last year. The speed shop was sold in 1992, and no longer exist. At that time Ron and his family moved to Anderson, SC. I met Ron in 2006, he was 1/4 mile mile up my same road! He gave me permission and rights to use the speed shop name, and with that the name will live on in his memory, and make people remember the REAL TRUE Speed Shops of years ago.
A little background of who I am:
I am a hobbyist of Classic Chevrolet Cars and especially 70-72 Monte Carlos. Through my lifestyle and interest in these cars I've accumulated quite a few parts over the last 7 years. From now on Ye Olde Speed & Sport will be just that for 70-72 Monte Carlos, and other interchangeable 64-72 GM A-body parts. I enjoy finding parts, you never know whats still stashed away out there as I've come to find out, driving thousands of miles on the hunt, visiting swap meets, car shows, Junk yards, etc has yielded some interesting adventures but has helped me keep my cars on the road.I have to sell parts to keep buying them, but the fun for me is finding them. But Inventory piles up fast and it has to go to keep me going elsewhere, finding more, and to keep improving/restoring my own projects. I don't work on anyone else's car I have my own hands full enough. The Story of Speed Shop is awesome, I'm thankful to be able to keep the name out there. If you was to know Ron or heard of this shop back in the 80s in Connecticut, feel free to call me or email me, I'd love to hear from you! Jared1970MonteCarlo@yahoocom
