We love cars and are always looking to buy or sell one of our collection. We also raise, show and sell miniature donkeys. Our summers are often conflicted with donkey shows and car shows with donkey shows usually winning out.
Do you have any personal or favorite web sites?
We have three web sites that we maintain. The first is www.LegendaryFarms.com where you can learn more about our miniature donkeys. The second is www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com which is dedicated to the registration and preservation of the 1969 Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler/Spoiler II cars. These are the very limited production NASCAR Aero Warriors from 1969/70. The third site is www.LegendaryCollectorCars.com, this site is dedicated to all collector cars. Although our collection is mostly Aero Warrior cars we do love and have a variety of others. This site has lots of pages dealing with all collector cars plus reviews of car museums around the Country and some product reviews, feature cars and more.

What has been your favorite car that you’ve owned?
It is impossible to pick one favorite car. I have owned well over 100 different speciality cars. Each one was unique and served a different purpose. There are a few cars I disliked and would never own again but otherwise all of our cars are favorites. If I absolutely had to pick one car to never part with it would most likely be the 1969 Dodge Daytona. It is extremely rare and the high winged 1969 Daytona is a muscle car/NASCAR icon.
