A cool Ferrari collection

Making a right turn in the old Allison Transmission office building lobby will take you down another dimly lit hallway that opens up into a warehouse filled with approximately 70 or so cars. MOST of the collection are Ferraris, with a few Avantis and other things thrown in just for fun. Amazing thinking what might be in the buildings that we drive by every day!

Next stop....Hammer Art

Our next stop on this year's Blanket Run took us to Main Street in Speedway, Indiana, home of Hammer Art. Hammer Art is located in what I was told is an old Allison Transmission office building. When you walk in, the lobby has a cool Art Deco feel. A left turn down a dimly lit hallway takes you to the Hammer Art workshop.

Peroxide Blonde in a Hopped-Up Model Ford - Brian Setzer

Well I went out a cattin’ on a Friday night
I was dressed to kill, I wasn’t lookin’ for a fight.
I looked in the mirror, just a waitin’ for the light,
I saw a hot chick that really looked right.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
Now I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.

Well I pulled on over, she asked me for a ride,
She moved real close, side by side.
I looked out the window and to my surprise,
It was a hot rod Ford just a passin’ me by.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.

Well we drove down Main, just to make a scene.
I barked my tire when the light turned green.
I slapped it to the floor, let out on the clutch.
What was left on the road, well it wasn’t very much.
We flew out of town, we were side by side,
Twin carburetors were open wide.
Tires that smoked, engine started to whine
I tell ya, that blonde left me way behind.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
Now I’m never, never ever, draggin’ down Main no more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
