Care To Take A Cruise With This olelongrooffan, My Fellow Hoons?

Although the byline on this post is not longroofian, it is actually by this olelongrooffan. Can’t figure out why a friend of The Chief Blooger got credit for it, although all is good.

Thread the Needle – Mopart

Welcome to “Thread The Needle!” A weekly column that explores the rich history of motorsports by way of the thrift store t-shirt.
