Ray Hershey Jr. was a hot rodder for over 50 years, back when you would peel out, lay rubber, did burnouts, fishtailed, and drag raced on the streets and back roads. Back when triple carbs were the hottest thing you could do to your V-8 Flathead or your 292 Ford. Drive in movies were always a kick when you hid your friends in the trunk and snuck them in for free. Cruising the drive-in restaurants on Friday and Saturday nights and showing off your glass packs. Continental Kits, Fender Skirts, Baby moons and spinners, Lowered in the back, Raked , Nosed, Decked, and Pin Stripped was the call of the day.
Kind of a "Blast from the past" with the worlds oldest teenager.
One day, Ray took a chance on a redhead with impeccable handwriting and a slight knowledge on classic cars. Brittany was brought on to the team and was a perfect fit. The guys love her, and she brings a level of spunk to the group.
Car shows were always a passion of Ray's and he tried to create great venues to show off and display friends cars with the same passion.
In April of 2018, Ray Hershey Jr. went to run car shows for the Big Guy in the Sky, while Raymond and Brittany tried to fill some pretty large shoes.
His son Raymond Hershey III has obviously been raised around hot rods all his life and actively involved for the past 18 years. The difference is, his generation doesn't just burnout or lay rubber, they have added drifting, fuel injection, and stereo systems that cost more than Ray's first car. Raymond has built cars from the ground up and does automotive restoration along with full car details and basic maintenance. He has a passion for the old classics but has a flare for the latest technology.
Kind of a " Back to the future" if you will.
The name "Time Machine Car Shows" just seemed fitting.
In August 2021, Raymond and Brittany FINALLY got married and now Co-Own Time Machine Car Shows
