I started cruising Woodward Ave with my dad in the early 60s. He worked for GM and his job was to test muscle cars. He would bring home a different car almost every night and my dad would would take me and a friend or 2 depending on the car and go street racing. My dad was a professional driver. He was a backup driver for NASCAR in the 50s. He would have to report on the results. Not only GM he would bring home but also the other big 3. It was mostly for testing. Then I got my license in 68 and my 1st car was a 65 Chev Impala SS convertible with the 409-400-4 speed. 400.00. Woodward and Telegraph was my 2nd home until the 90s when I moved to FL. Lot of good times on the AV. Never wreck or got a ticket. Just some of the cars that I had through the years street racing. The 57 Bird had a 427 Hi Riser, the 63s had 409s, the black truck had a 454 with a tunnel ram, the green truck had a 327 375 fuelie. The red 62 Chev Clone car had a 427 Z11, very rare engine.
