Another thing I like to do every year before heading out on the "run" is to go right next door from God Speed to "Walt's Hot Rod Shop". Walter always has some cool stuff going on in his place, and this year, had this cool little bobber in the front.
Our first stop on this year's journey took us about 40 miles from Indy to McKinney Corporation in Lafayette, Indiana. McKinney Corp. hand builds Top Fuel and Dragsters. The folks at McKinney were incredible hosts, letting us tour their facility and answering any questions we had. They even had some cheese and sausage for us, and a complimentary, ice cold bottle of XXX Root Beer. Yum!
