A Wedding Triumph

One fall day in my early childhood my father was readying his cars for an event. Usually, he would tinker on one or two at a time, but never all four at once. It turned out that my uncle requested the use of all the families’ classic cars in a brilliant and bold procession from…


Jake’s B

My Uncle Jake Darsey was one of the most influential men in my life.  Next to my dad, I’m sure he had more impact on my life as a boy than any other adult male.  Not until I was in late elementary school or early jr. high did I discover to my great shock that…

Challenger Spotlight: Madison Hutchinson

I’ve always been a “Gearhead Gal,” and always will be. I mean, c’mon, how can you not when you have a dad like mine? I grew up in the shop, covered in grease, and surrounded by beautiful cars. We’ve owned all types of them, but we’ve always had a thing for MGs (we’re on number…


A Family Affair: Winter 2001
