EPISODE SUMMARY

In retirement, do we always seek the refuge of our favorite golf course or the comfort of that familiar rocking chair? While Tim Coffeen has retired from Indy Car racing, he has never truly retired from the challenge of working on race cars. In Tim’s case, rocking chairs and golf clubs have been replaced by the lure of vintage race cars.

As a kid, Tim remembers the swift Offy-powered machine driven by A. J. Foyt in the 1960 Indianapolis 500. Now, over six decades later, Tim is part of a team restoring and maintaining vintage Indy race cars, including that very same Foyt racer.
