August 27, 2014- Silent Running ( teams up with BareSpeed and Good Mark to bring a new concept to the feature vehicles display. Unlike other display vehicles at SEMA, this 67 Mustang build will feature no interior accessories in order to showcase the benefits of using Silent Running.

Clarence Chan, owner of Bare Speed says, “I saw this car and thought, this is going to be amazing! Everyone else saw this car and just laughed at me. Most people said it needs to be scrapped. I then spoke to Silent Running and told them about the project. They loved the idea, they had not seen the car though. After they saw the first pictures, they were speechless, “Are you sure we can do this by SEMA?” The next call was to Goodmark- I spoke to them about the car and they loved the idea. They knew exactly what I was talking about and agreed it was a great idea.”

During the following years, Bobby would suffer both physically and emotionally, losing both of his sons, eleven months apart, in tragic accidents. After the crash, many of his memories were lost, including his 1988 Daytona 500 victory, alongside his son Davey. 1988 was also the year that Bobby purchased a 1950 Studebaker R2 Pickup Truck. The truck was to be his own project. A restoration project that he would enjoy long into his retirement.
