Ray and Kathy Fairfield 750cc motorcycle. Back in 1979, Ray’s first restoration was a ’34 Ford pick up. In 1981 they joined the Valle Del Sur Club. It has since become their major social scene with the monthly meetings and tours. Ray has served as the club’s treasurer and president, and Kathy is the current vice president. Kathy’s dad was into cars and the fascination has stayed with her. The Fairchild living room is home to a beautifully restored Union 76 gas pump that stands about ten feet tall! Autos are in this familie bloodline. In the living room is an elegant photo of their daughter with her new BMW. The ’30 Packard is an elegantly restored classic..the beautiful lines, the etched glass and even an antimacassar in the back seat. This one was made by Kathy’s mother.
