Taylor & Judy Merrill

H 706-882-5070

Taylor was raised in western Kansas and Judy in Ohio. They met while attending Michigan State University. After marriage and several preliminary jobs, Taylor started working for Rubbermaid in Ohio. When an opportunity arose to help start up a new plant in LaGrange, GA, they volunteered to come to the South, where they lived and worked until Rubbermaid sold the factory in 1981. Shortly thereafter, the entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and Taylor purchased the local Dairy Queen as a birthday present for Judy, which they still own today. Their Model A interests began on a tour with the Wichita, KS, Model A club in 1991, where they also maintain a membership. They enjoyed the experience so much they returned home and purchased a 1929 Roadster which, today, has accumulated 50,000 miles, much of it due to their participation in numerous Greatrace competitions across the U.S. They also have a 1928 "Sunday go to meetin'" Tudor and a 1931 Panel Delivery Truck. Taylor's current project is working on their 1931 AA dump truck.
