Honest Joe Lombardo Retires


A couple short years ago, we celebrated the retirement of Honest Mike Goodman, and now it’s time to wish Joe Lombardo a happy retirement! Joe has been with Honest Charley for many years, and actually has a pretty distinct connection to Honest Charley Hisself. He’s married to Charley’s granddaughter, Amy! He has traveled to shows, helped thousands of customers on the phone, and he’s been working the front counter at the Speed Shop for years. The guys knows his hot rod parts, and he will be missed by our parts vendors, customers and especially fellow employees. We hope that he spends plenty of time tinkering with his Mercury, or maybe playing an extra round or two of golf in 2018. Hopefully,he won’t mind when we call for help and ask for advice! Thank you Joe for all the great years of service at Honest Charley Speed Shop!

Photos from the 2017 Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive


As the car show season winds down, we’re always reminded by the generosity of our fellow car guys and gals. Toy drive events are held across this great nation, and we’re always proud to have an excellent turnout of cars, people and donations at the Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive, a benefit for the Toys for Tots Foundation. This year, the weather man tricked us into thinking it was going to rain, so the turnout was a little thin, compared to last year, but the event still brought in about the same number of toys and monetary donations. We’re so excited to be a part of the Chattanooga Cruise In Toy Drive, and proud that we have the opportunity to give back to the needy folks in our community by way of hot rods, muscle cars and classic trucks getting together on a cloudy Saturday in November. Check out our favorites from the event!
