Happy Father’s Day from V8 Speed and Resto!  Carrying on our weekend long Father’s Day Pics of the V8 Speed and Resto Crew; meet Brian Wibbenmeyer. His caption on this photo:

“I found the original picture I wanted to share for Father’s Day.   This is me standing on the trailer as my father writes a check to pay for the 69 Camaro project that would be his first restoration and got me hooked on this industry/lifestyle.”

Picture is circa 1986.

Enthusiasm for cool cars often starts at a young age, and we’re happy Brian continues to share his enthusiasm with all of us!

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”.
