My personal favorite is the Steve Kinser Superman diecast with Kinser's signature on the wing. My two favorite heros combined in one....

My dad's favorite is the left side panel wing to a Quaker State wing given to him by Tom Busch in Indiana. Kinser was straping into his car at the World Finals while smoking a cigarette. He threw out his cig and produced a sharpie out of nowhere and motioned for dad to come over so he could sign it. Kinser won that night....

In 1999, Kenny Jacobs said he wanted to do something different to the car when we lettered it for the live tv broadcast of the Knoxville Nationals on TNN . He said that the kids found a picture of Mighty Mouse that they thought was pretty cool. The picture was the basis for the first ever Mighty Mouse wing center section I painted for Kenny. The wing (and body, were painted in a brown-gold pearl paint) was to only run Knoxville. But after a hot lap crash during night one of the Sharon Nationals, that body and wing were put back into service for the rest of the season. When the wing came off the car the last time, Kenny autographed the Mighty Mouse, and the complete wing hangs in my shop just as it came off the car.

A snapshot taken at East Bay Raceway one night as we were leaving, after another night of sprint car racing.It is of a young 13 year old kid on a four-wheeler after having competed in the races that night.My husband asked me"Have you got your camera on you ? Take a picture of that kid ".I asked him "Why ?" and his answer was "Cause he's gonna be famous some day "

I still carry that dogeared photo in my purse of Jeff Gordon taken in 1985 and have given out a number of copies to any Jeff Gordon fan that we run across.It is now a signed 8x10 framed in our racing room.

Steve Kinsers 20th annual KINGS ROYAL (BIG) check that they make up for the photos....the irony of that, is we just got it last spring(hoserville drivers fund auction) and its the same year we already had pictures made into decals for the party wagon in 2004....it was the 2003 Kings Royal.

I have a tire from Steve Kinser that I cut the sidewall off, made into a clock and had signed by Steve, Sammy, and Doug. Also just got for Christmas a few weeks ago from my brother a tail tank from Danny Young's car, and also a personal photo album of a lot of pictures of Danny when he started racing.
