Continuing our Father’s Day Pics from the V8 Speed and Resto crew meet; Bob Schramm and Lisa Woods are a father & daughter duo here at V8 Speed and Resto. Lisa handles Marketing and Events at V8TV Productions and Bob is Shop Cleaning/Maintenance.  

Lisa: “As a kid, our 1977 Ford Wagon held countless memories, particularly during family vacations. The spacious back wagon became our makeshift play area, brimming with excitement and anticipation. However, the summer heat transformed it into a sweltering sauna, as we traveled for hours with no air conditioning, but thanks dad for adding the mattress the year we went to Alabama .”

Bob: “Watching my dad spend many evenings and weekends on his early 1950’s Dodge truck is something I will always cherish”. “Hanging out in the garage, the smell of oil and paint was where we had some of our best conversations”.

We love seeing the future come to be.   Check out this ad from a 1969 issue of Car Craft Magazine, where GM predicts how future in-car navigation systems will allow you to drive from one coast to the other without a map!    Interestingly, they got it backwards… the signals come from the sky and not the road like they imagined!   Who’d have thought it’s all in the palm of your hand today?
