Feature Interview:

The Great Tom Farrington (Sam’s Dad)


According to Tom, up until the carnage occurred his car was working like a champ! Live to fight another day, right?

In this episode we had a chance to have our good friend Tom Farrington on the show to give a live report from the recent Midwest Muscle Car Challenge event. Unfortunately for Tom, a small mistake during installation of hew new Baer brakes on his ’66 Chevelle caused a mishap on the road course that locked up on wheel, hurt a caliper, and flat spotted a brand new BFG Rival tire, but he still managed to place high in the autocross segment and had quite a bit of fun.

For those that didn’t know, Tom’s “day job” is that of a professional fire fighter, and he serves his country during the weekend in the military reserves. He did this interview from the firehouse! (His wife Deb is also a fire fighter….and races a ’64 Chevelle wagon. Feel free to be a little bit envious.) Tom was cool enough to do this interview live from the firehouse, and he made the disclaimer that if an alarm occurred that he’d be leaving, pronto!


Upcoming Events:

May Will Be a Busy Month!
