Where the Old West Never Died: The Melings Story

Recommended Posts

I just got my 1st edition 1968 hardback copy of the book today (finally). It tells the story of how the Melings came

to be where they are today. Well, in 1968 at least. I thought I'd share this w/all of you & maybe pass along some interesting stories.

Got the paperback version last time I was at the ranch.

Amazing stories, good reading.

I remember the fights between Ada Melling and Mike Leone back in the mid 70's. At the time Melling Ranch was VERY anti off-road. There was one 500 in particular where Ada had the gate on the fence bordering Coyote/Melling/Mikes "hard wired" the night before the race. The first bike had to break down the fence!!! Thank god Melling's is now off-road friendly it is a great place with great people!!!
