I'm not too sure.They closed,and then a couple years back they reopened,but then they closed again.From what I hear,they're back in business,but they're private,and I have no idea if they still do anything automotive related.Last time I drove by,there was about 30 Dodge Rams in front of one of the buildings,but that was a couple years ago when they had reopened.I know that part of the property was leased out to a hot tub manufacturing company,but I don't know if they're still there either.This website lists them as being in business,and it seems to have been recently updated......

Thanks.And your welcome.I wasn't old enough to remember Davey racing,but I've seen him on old tapes my dad has of him racing,and I know that if he was still around,he'd be my favorite driver.He was one of the nicest and cleanest racers there ever was.They'll never be another racer like him.

According to Google Maps,Mark III is an abandoned factory.Here's a street view...

Yeah, them was the days, i remember when davey & bobby tried to whup cale yarlborough after the datona 500... funny, they probably got a bonus for that, nowadays they'd get fined for it. I think that was the first nationally televised flag-to-flag coverage of a nascar race.

I'm glad to see the Woods Bros. are still running at least a limited schedule with awesome bill from dawsonville
