What do you drive or race today?
Mostly watched the races from the Pit Side of the track (Sure wish I kept a few of my old pit passes). I was from the north end of Eastchester, lots of guys from the north end went to the track on Sunday’s. I had a 1962 Chevy, it was nice but not fast. It was a 283 and I raced it in I/SA. When I didn’t take my car to the track I usually rode up with friends. I ate a lot of hamburgers and drank a lot of Pepsi, but it was fun and I always got a nice sunburn. I have a 1976 Stingray and 1976 Malibu Classic today. At one time I owned a 1966 Chevy Impala with a 396 CI, 325 HP, it was too fast for me and I wrecked it. Great website, I will come back often.
Hey Jim, I think I remember that accident you are talking about. Was this the one behind the A&P in the North End.
Wasn’t there a pole involved and a telltale positraction burnout marks that you Dad noticed. I may be an ODF but my memory is not completely gone.
Charlie…You do have a great memory. It did happen behind the A&P…Lots of burnt rubber and tire tracks…You guessed it, Pam was in the car with me at the time, I think she wanted to see me smoke the tires…It wasn’t long after that my journey to Air Force basic training began…Ah, the good old days…BTW I did join the ODF and I just finished looking at every single picture…You have some great shots…Take care..Jim
