Don Neal couldn’t believe his eyes.

It had been over a decade since he last sat in the driver’s seat of his very own demolition derby car.

But suddenly he had one – a surprise from his friends.

It was just like Neal remembered his cars from the old days: royal blue on both ends, white in the center, and bold red lettering across the side.

“That was my old paint scheme,” Neal said. “It looked just like my last Figure 8 car. Even one of the sponsors is the same.”

Neal was tickled by all the details, right down to the TATER 26XX stamped to a metal plate on roof. Neal IS Tater – an old nickname given to him by his uncle when he was 7 years old thanks to his overzealous love of potato chips.
