Ford W. Heacock III is a dedicated insurance professional with a passion for the Collector Vehicle hobby. He had immersed himself in the Collector Vehicle and Vintage Auto racing from an early age. His family was intimately involved in the 12 Hours of Sebring racing event throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s. His grandfather, Ford Heacock Sr. was the Chairman of the Sebring race in the early years of the event.
This early exposure to the Collector Vehicle hobby piqued Ford W. Heacock III interest. After being surrounded by the Collector Vehicle hobby throughout his early years, he founded the SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association) and Vintage Motorsport in the early 1980’s. His passion for Vintage racing and the Collector Vehicle hobby is clear through his work and personal interests. He is now an avid car collector, vintage auto racer, car show judge, and he is the founder of the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival that is held each October in Lakeland, Florida.
