I never told her that I drag raced her Lark until about 30 years later. I also drag raced her Hawk.

Here is me and my friend getting ready to run 'em.

I hate to admit it, but I never won any. I came close several times, but got eliminated at the last round.

Here is the time ticket of the Lark. Very slow nowadays!

My friend, Joe traded his 56 Bel Air for a 58 Corvette and then lost his license, so I had to drive him around!

Here are a couple from my collection of family photos. The first one is a picture of my Dad's service truck. Probably around 1956-58. The second was a good friend of the family that ran the local garage, this shot was from 1958. It was his tow truck my Dad borrowed to tow me out of a field after I drove on ice for the first time around 1964. Nothing was said other than was I ok. He pulled me out, asked if I thought I could handle it to go where I was going and did I learn anything. Yep don't touch the brakes when you are trying to correct a skid.
