A news paper reporter ask him, when did auto racing get started?
He replied, Five minutes after the second car was built.

That is right, "Mr. Ford".
Age 16 I got my first car. A 1952 Chev. 6 banger with 3 on the tree. Froze and cracked the block soon there after. Next one was a Ford 1952 flat head V8 with 3 on the tree and over drive. 90 MPH in 2ed. over drive. I was the only eighth grader that was driving my own car to school. ;) :o That was the best thing to happen to my sex education. :P I got my first speeding ticket racing the Muskegon County Sheriff. :roll: 8-)

1964, Light blue Chevy Bellair. 6 cylinder, Automatic. But boy will one wheel spin when you go backwards about 20 MPH, then put it in neutral, floor the engine and drop it in drive. Never raced anybody as it would have been a loosing proposition.

But I put an 8 track tape player in it, with two big speakers cut into the real shelf. That improved my sex education, but if you went parking, and left the tape player on too long, the battery would leave you stranded.

Girl friend had broke her leg playing softball, Had a walking cast on. We both walked about a mile up a muddy ole back road, went into the Home ec teachers house and used her phone. House was unlocked, they came home from a school meeting and found us in their living room using the phone.

Called her folks house for a ride home, her brother had just wrecked the family car coming home from the local rodeo. Mostly drunk.

Fun times
