    Man Made Legends to Auction Off '30s Sprint Car for Ignite Charity

    Man Made Legends has been invited by Ray Evernham of Americarna to auction off their '30s sprint car. All proceeds will go to North Carolina based Ignite Charity

    The night before the Americarna Live car show, Keith and Leslie Sultana, owners of Man Made Legends, were personally invited by Ray Evernham for an exclusive charity event. Keith and Leslie asked if they could bring their '30s sprint car to auction off for the charity. Ray responded with a resounding, "I would love that!"

    On Friday, November 28, the '30s sprint car will hit the auction block. Auction results will be posted shortly thereafter. The car is a barn find from the Charlotte area with such parts as:

    • 1937 Ford Flathead

    • 1937 Chrysler front axle

    • ’46-’48 Ford left front spindle

    • ’37-’41 Ford ¾ ton torque tube and transmission

    • ’32 Ford front spring/perches

    • ’38-’41 rear hubs

    • Late ‘30s Houdaille shocks

    • ’39 Ford wheels

    All proceeds from the auction will benefit Ignite Charity. IGNITE is a new community center for young adults with high-functioning autism (HFA) or Asperger's Syndrome (AS). IGNITE offers activities, skills training, and educational workshops that will foster social, financial, educational, and employment independence for its members. But most importantly, it offers a social environment where members can connect with others and experience a sense of community. IGNITE focuses on the existing strengths and interests of its members, allowing them to pursue individual interests, while providing support where needed. IGNITE encourages members to discover their passions and reach their full potential.

    Keith and Leslie enjoy giving back to their local community, "We love what Ray is doing at Americarna and his work with Ignite. We just wanted to help anyway we could." Check back next week for the auction results.

     

    Man Made Legends at the Fall 2014 Charlotte AutoFair

    The guys at Man Made Legends had a great weekend at the Fall 2014 Charlotte AutoFair. Over 150,000 people attended, and over 1,600 cars lined the 1.5-mile track. With over 150 acres of Flea Market fields, there was plenty to keep the discerning eye grazing. 

    Many attendees stopped by the Man Made Legends booth to check out the 1940 moonshiner car, the '29 Ford Coupe (converted to Roadster), and the burgundy '28 Roadster. In addition to showing off their prized builds, John was casted on the large screen at Charlotte Motor Speedway giving demonstrations of his world-famous "Patina in a Can". This secret elixir will turn any rusty metal into the patina shine Man Made uses in-house on their hot rods with that classic patina finish. 

    Overall, the weekend was a success with great weather and great friends. Tom Cotter stopped by the booth and commented on our new branding, and friend Ray Evernham talked with Keith about his show Americarna and their upcoming Americarna Live car show. Man Made Legends has officially been invited to the show to display their custom hot rods. 

    If we didn't catch you this past weekend, see our Event section and say "hey" next time.
