GodSpeed Blanket Run: Bruce Litton Racing

Well, the weather wasn't real cooperative. In fact, this was the first snow of any significance this year in East-Central Indiana. The weather report was enough to flush any thoughts of getting Ol' Blue out of the garage for me....so I was AMAZED that these three guys drove their ROADSTERS!!!!
Once we left DSR, the Blanket Run continued to the shop of 2007 IHRA Top Fuel Champion Bruce Litton. http://www.brucelitton.com/
The MOST impressive thing about Bruce's shop WASN'T the dragsters, it was his INCREDIBLE collection of restored Chevrolets in a MASSIVE garage that is built to look like the town he grew up in.
The cars were incredible, and the store fronts were just as impressive. There was a movie theater, a barber shop, a soda shop, sheriff's office, gas station, and even a church just to name a few.

Each store front actually contained period pieces...ie barber chair and barber equipment.


Once again, our host allowed us to wander through his place. I was truly impressed with the hospitality of each of our hosts during the run.

I have a few more pictures of Bruce's place that I will post tomorrow. But to learn more about his collection, you can check out the following link:
