Tim’s most cherished possession is this ’46 CRA yearbook where promoter Bob Ware wrote: “This book is dedicated to the future greats in automobile racing of America.” Among the future greats listed: Manuel Ayulo, Jack McGrath, Jim Rathmann, and Troy Ruttman. Two years before Petersen’s mag debuted, the term “hot rod” was commonly coined used for cut-down Ford roadsters used for racing. Tim has cherished this yearbook since the day he got it. Rightfully so, since he is listed with some of the greatest names in American auto racing.
