I'm helping Rick Vesco liquidate Don's estate and before we put the scale
model car collection on eBay, we thought it best to offer land speed folks a
chance to own one of Don's cars, trucks, or a motorcycle as a memento. There
are 182 vehicles and a few model planes. Don was an eclectic collector and
accumulated everything from Vukovich winning cars, to simple Ford F150's and
even kiddie toys and hand carved wooden models. Oddly, there are very few
land speed cars and motorcycles, but plenty of Indy cars, sprints, liquor
decanters (some with the booze still in 'em), Thimble Drome cars, and even a
gorgeous Offy engine.
I have photos of every blessed one and will be completing an online
inventory of what is available. The money raised will go to fund the next
outing of the Turbinator, now scheduled for the 2004 season. Don had more
toys than I could have ever imagined; he was a "go fast" kid in more ways
