The Cars of Jack Slaymaker

The Cars of Jack Slaymaker

Full disclosure: I never met Jack Slaymaker, and I’ve surely never been to the tiny town of Fostoria, Iowa (population 211)… But sadly Jack has passed away and VanDerBrink Auctions will be selling off his hot rod collection on July 24th, on behalf of his widow. This guy had pretty darn good taste in cars, so I figured I would share six of my favorites from his cool collection with you. If you happen to be hanging around the auction next month, feel free to pick up any of these babies up for me!
