Done with the obsessive attention to detail and quality that fellow members Paul and Christine are famous for, its modelled on the famous diners known throughout America and made globally famous during the rock and roll era of the 60's. Freestone’s Roadhaven has been painstakingly researched to reflect the best of Americana nostalgia, with a custom-made fit-out made in the USA by the same families that have made the iconic booths and bars that children and children-at-heart have enjoyed sliding into for decades. (They even had the Amish make their diner chairs…) Say you're Club members and they'll make a fuss over you, it's good fun.
With memorabilia, his race and special cars on display (and the red big block Galaxie is for sale very reasonably in the mid 20s) it's a great place to eat, talk and marvel.
