The Race Car Bed That Connects Bruce Meyers, McLaren, and Parnelli Jones

Matthew NGO was not the first driver of the Night Racer. He inherited the seat from his cousin Jack Stewart, who took over when Azra Schorr got a little too teenage-cool to sleep in a car-shaped bed. Schorr, who had the livery swapped from Petty blue to McLaren orange, got driving duties from her father, Stuart, who got them from his father, Martyn, who bought the B.F. Meyers & Co. furniture new for his son back in the early Seventies. Much like a real race car, the Night Racer has moved from team to team, always finding an eager young pilot. But who dreamed it up in the first place?
