The Car Guy

 

The Car Guy

Jack's Waldo the Wonder Willy


Jack the Car Guy lives in Yellville and has loved cars and all things mechanical since childhood. He purchased his first car, a 1930 Model A sedan, when he was 12 years old, with his lawn mowing money. He has never stopped collecting, now owning 11 cars, 6 tractors, several stationery engines and projects too many to ever finish. He has worked in all phases of the automotive industry, from sales to repair, and currently works for Carroll Shelby Enterprises, servicing Goodyear Racing Tires to the NASCAR circuit. Jack says he never met a car he didn’t like – he just likes some better than others.

The show is for the gearheads in our listening area to be able to find out where events are happening, ask a question or two and perhaps learn something new each week.
