By the way, thats the starter in front of the cars. We didn't get a tree until late summer 1965.
Quite cool!

I got hooked early also. Dad had a '61 Bonneville w/421 4-speed, my future brother in law who lived nearby had a '58 Chieftain w/tri-power and 4-speed. Black on black, an absolutely gorgeous car!

Before I left central FL ca. '95, a friend had just finished a '64 wagon. Looked a little like Beswick's wagon from a ways back.

The first drags I went to at Valkaria (sp.?) FL were flag started, too.

OT- You might have heard that Micky's and his wife's killer was finally caught a while back.

RIP old son.
