In Memory of Russ Wallace…December 16, 1949 – November 19, 2016
In the past 60 years of being involved with cars and racing, every so often I meet a special individual. Such is the case with Russ Wallace, Founder, CEO and President of Door Slammers Car Club is in Tucson, Arizona. I met Russ shortly after we started Old Iron in 2012. Russ was a true gentleman of the classic car scene. I asked him what I needed to join the Club and he said, “Just buy a T-Shirt and you are in”!
The following was taken from the old Door Slammers Car Club website:
Door Slammers Car Club is established February 21st, 2008. Russ Wallace is very proud of his club, the club members, and Miss Holly, his beautiful 1978 GMC modified custom. We are a Non-profit family-oriented car club. Many shows help raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Society. We love to support great causes and enjoy helping others by having car shows to support their business. We believe there is nothing that goes better together than a Saturday afternoon and classic cars!

Door Slammers Car Club is proud to offer a club with no membership fee other than your club shirt for unity. Door Slammers NEVER charges a registration fee at any of our car shows, we never charge spectators either. We solely rely on the good hearts of Tucson for their generous donations which help raise funds and awareness for local charities. We never limit the type of vehicle to enter our shows either! Depending on the wants of the business we are hosting the show for, we may end up with trophies for each class but in many cases, we have 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Best of Show or People’s choice awards. All vehicles registered can have the opportunity to win!
Russ is sorely missed and will always be remembered for his love of people, classic cars, and trucks! R.I.P. Russ
