      For me the Wedge Inn didn’t happen until the late 70’s………….I did not run any street cars there but I ran what I was racing at the time…That was freaky on top end with the bumpy surface, but fun…….Billy, have you told everyone the story about the 57’s flight into the creek……………………………..Don…………..Oh and great hot peppers on the counter for the awesome wedges……….

        Remember my brother taking me to the White Castle on Boston Post Road,,
        had some heavy runs come out of there,
        he had a ’55 4 spd 283, had the normal front bumper & panels below the
        directional lights removed..
        O,,, and is was black primer too..

          Grover and I were fixtures at the White Castle on Friday nights,racing for $20 dollar bills. 😎
          Storm Crankshaft grinding’s Jerry,and “Big” Ralphie’s parents owned the Wedge Inn.
          Never remembered any street races out of the Village Barn……Plenty of women for sure. 😉
          Someone mentioned Kent(Cliffs).Coming back from Dover,on a rainout,went through Kent with some of my buds.Got into mischief,drag raced some road graders on a new road they were building.Got caught,because we didn’t know how to shut them off(pull throttle pedal up),anyway had to go to court. 🙁 Penalty…Stay out of Kent Cliffs forever,or go to jail. 😯
