Richard Petty is an American racing legend with the most NASCAR series wins, a shocking 200, over a career that lasted 34 years. Now, one of The King’s iconic race cars is up for auction, the very 1971 Plymouth Road Runner that he took to the #1 spot at the NASCAR Grand National Championship race. It just so happens to be one of his favorites, too. Painted in Petty’s famous blue hue inside and out, the Road Runner houses a rebuilt 426 CI Hemi V8 engine and a four-speed manual transmission. The seat is a special Petty custom houndstooth fabric, which makes the car even more special. It also happens to be only one of two factory-sponsored cars, and it’s the only one that finished the 1971 racing season. Expect the car to hit the gavel at over half-a-million dollars when all is said and done. Not bad for a museum-worthy race car.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
