My name is Red Bogart. I used to go to Dover with my brother and friends that ran their cars in the early sixties. They ran a 55 chevy called the Ulcer. They ran D/MP. When I was 16 I bought a 55 Chevy that a guy named Livesy ran at Dover. It was a six cyl. and had many wins. The rear windows were full of win stickers. I think he ran at the Winter Nationals. When I got the car, it was pretty tired, so one night I dropped a 327/350 hp. with 2 fours in it. Very fast. Sorry, lost pictures of it.
Hey Red …Welcome aboard…I’m guessing Warwick ,N.Y.? Near my old Haunt-Greenwood Lake…back in sixties-lot of Rock Clubs.
Your right. Remember Mother`s. Saw some wild things there.
Ah yes…21 drinking age in Jersey…the border bandits (girls!) came over to New York where it was 18. Mothers burned down…Big Daddy’s and Long Pond Inn ring a bell? We Had same deal At Fore ‘n’ Aft In Brewster,N.Y. -Conn. was 21. ….two miles from border.
I can`t tell you how many guys I have met over the years that made the trip to Greenwood Lake. About 90% of them raced at Dover at one time or another. I know a lot of guys wrecked navigating those roads after a night of beers.
