The Hall of Fame Museum opened it doors for the 14th season on March 5th. The feature car this year will be the “Voodoo Spider” built by Elden Titus. It is a completely hand built all metal car. This car was built from a model that Elden designed and built when he was a teenager with the long time desire to build the real thing, his dream finally realized. Along with the “Voodoo Spider” Darryl will be debuting his latest creation the “Duzeybird” inspired by the Duzenburg of the early 30’s/
