    Driven Dirty: 100-year old race cars saved from life in museum

    "A race car that sits in a museum is a travesty," says Brian Blain, founder of the Blain Motorsports Foundation. Brian's obsession with pre-World War I race cars began decades ago when a family friend gifted him a trunk full of old racing memorabilia. He was already an avid motorcycle and car racer, but the contents of the trunk opened up a whole new world to him. Now, he centers his efforts on finding, preserving, restoring, and most importantly, DRIVING these amazing vintage race cars.

    Good for them and it's a shame that there are not more owners like them.

    Yes it is and they really enjoy driving those cars. I like to see them driven and not just put away as something to look at.
