Feature Interview:

The Great Tom Farrington (Sam’s Dad)

According to Tom, up until the carnage occurred his car was working like a champ! Live to fight another day, right?

In this episode we had a chance to have our good friend Tom Farrington on the show to give a live report from the recent Midwest Muscle Car Challenge event. Unfortunately for Tom, a small mistake during installation of hew new Baer brakes on his ’66 Chevelle caused a mishap on the road course that locked up on wheel, hurt a caliper, and flat spotted a brand new BFG Rival tire, but he still managed to place high in the autocross segment and had quite a bit of fun.

For those that didn’t know, Tom’s “day job” is that of a professional fire fighter, and he serves his country during the weekend in the military reserves. He did this interview from the firehouse! (His wife Deb is also a fire fighter….and races a ’64 Chevelle wagon. Feel free to be a little bit envious.) Tom was cool enough to do this interview live from the firehouse, and he made the disclaimer that if an alarm occurred that he’d be leaving, pronto!
