A Few From Latimore

Post by Scott Harro » Sat Jul 12, 2008 5:27 pm

Here's a few of interest from my 1st, and definetely not my last, trip to Latimore today. Got to spend about an hour talking with Lynn Paxton. Boy can that guy tell stories. What a memory!

while i personally wish there was more stuff from the 70's there just isn't a lot of room. the new stuff they do get they probably put in storage until they add on. they do have an expansion plan in place just waiting for $$$$$. i'm going back in august for their convention. talking with lynn was worth the trip. i recommend the trip for all race fans.

The best part about Latimore is that it's free all run by donations and volunteers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
