Visit Goodman Racing Car Collection Saturday, April 20, 2024

John Goodman has been racing, collecting, and restoring Corvettes for years.  Goodman’s current Seattle collection includes about 15 Corvettes, some very historic collectables.  Featured is the 1953 customized Corvette chronicled in a 1959 “Motor Trend” issue.  Bob Bondurant’s first Corvette racer (‘59 fuelie) is here. Very important is a Greenwood wide body “Stars and Stripes” Le Mans race car.  I expect that we will hear about the very rare skunkworks Corvette, that GM would like to buy.  On a visit a few years ago, they had at least one example of every fuelie Corvette from 1957-65.  The collection is not stagnant as they will sell some vehicles and acquire others as interests change.  Did you watch the movie “Ford vs. Ferrari”?  Ken Miles was featured in the movie as Shelby’s main driver.  By the time we arrive they should have a Ken Miles corner complete with a Superformance Ken Miles GT40, an original Cobra (one of 2 originally sold in Wash) and a Sunbeam Tiger.  In addition to perhaps 40 cars in the collection, I remember seeing two unlimited Hydo’s on trailers against the back wall.  We may also have the opportunity to tour the restoration and race car shops.

Goodman also has a second facility in the Phoenix area.  Our host will describe some of these historic cars, including the rare Corvettes.  We don’t often get a chance to visit this collection, so this should be a must see.  I expect there are more historic Corvettes in this collection than we recently toured at America’s Car Museum. 

Again, please register on the CMCS website so we have an accurate head count.
