Zyla Brady

This photo from Ranshaw taken in 1973 shows Greg Zyla’s grandfather’s store with the Holsum bread logos at 251 Main St. and the family porch on the house to the left at 247 Main St. Zyla stood on that porch until 1958 watching all the cars and trucks pass by. The photo shows one of the many Studebaker coal trucks that drove by back then.

Q: Greg, I was born in the late 1940s and am very interested in how you came to become the person you are today when it comes to cars, racing and getting cars to test drive? I have a grandchild who loves cars and would like to become a writer and test driver, too. Could you tell us about growing up and how cars influenced you and how things came about? Thanks and I enjoy your stories every week.
