First of all, thank you to the Great Race team members that published the March 9th article on the Great Race website about our Spirit of Stahls teams for 2015. Yes, it’s true we’re planning on entering 4 different cars this year. We’ve already talked about the 1967 GTO that we are getting prepared with the help of Dave McAllister. Another Spirit of Stahls team car currently undergoing restoration is actually a  former “Great Race” car. We are bringing it back to its former glory, but it has very good bones and already has some road rally modifications, such as two radiators and two water pumps. Our son Trevor Stahl, along with his friend Josh Hull, will be the team behind the wheel of this classic roadster. The car will turn a lot of heads along Route 66, since we plan to repaint the custom “Stars and Stripes” motif. We’ll update you with pictures of the painting progress. Dave McAllister is also working on preparing two more Great Race veterans for our teams. The 1941 Packard will be driven again by sons Dan and Brett Stahl. Thomas Karr (CEO GroupeSTAHL Europe) and his son Benjamin plan to be behind the wheel of the 1934 Ford Deluxe Phaeton they drove last year.

Here's what the 1932 Roadster looked like when it participated in the 1982 Great Race. We can't wait to see it brought back to its former glory!
