Mike Eddy is an easy guy to figure out. First impressions might make you think this is a shop right out of the late'60 or early'70s. The decor tells you Mike's world revolves around early Fords and Trans-Am racing. What is taking place in an adjacent room is the ongoing restoration on his 64' Falcon Sprint that competed in the inaugural year of the SCCA's Trans-Am series in 1966, finishing inside the top 10 as the only Falcon in the field, and is currently one of the oldest surviving Trans-Am cars. What makes that an even better story is that the car was owned and campaigned originally by Mike's neighbor, Pete Cordts, who unfortunately passed away last year. Mike's Dad also helped work on the car when he wasn't working full time for Carroll Shelby.(The Falcon was used as a test bed for many Shelby suspension ideas.) Mike's connection to the golden age of Trans-Am racing spills over into what could be called a dream job building and maintaining Vic Edelbrock's fleet of vintage Trans-Am cars. Among the machines Mike works on every day include Smokey Yunick's infamous gold '68 Trans-Am Camaro and the Bud Moore-prepared, George Follmar-driven '69 Boss 302 Mustang, along with a slew of other very famous road racers. All this leads us back to Mike's garage and the history injected into every square inch of his shop.
