A History of Speed

Jack's uncle Temple Buell Jr. was a noted race team owner and driver in the mid fifties. His drivers included Carroll Shelby, Masten Gregory, Phil Hill, Juan Fango and others. He campaigned Ferrari and Maserati sports and open wheel cars.


Jack got to meet many of these drivers as a young man while hanging around with his uncle.

"I got to sit in the pits and watch Carroll Shelby manage his team of Shelby Mustangs to a 1-2-3 finish at the Continental Divide Raceway. After the race Shelby came to dinner at our house and still remembers my mother's lasagna. That type of excitement gets in your blood and never leaves. I love to create excitement for my customers and get great satisfaction seeing them enjoy their cars."
