Default Richard petty in australia ??

Thought some of you may be interested in this story -
Recently I visited a property here at home with a car club that I'm a member with.
One of the members knows a bloke called Barry Graham who apparantly has a lot to do with "Petty Racing" in the States.
Barry graciously invited our car club to his home & workshop.
Here are some of the photo's I took -

Arriving at the workshop -

You could eat your dinner from any part of the workshop floor it was that clean.
Once inside everyone just looked in awe with jaws on the ground.
