Hey Oldtimeracer...here is a hint. There was one building between your house and mine. Not to mention all of the bicycle races in the alley behind your garage. Who's sprint car did you paint on the door?

There was two sprint cars I painted on the garage doors. One was Mr. Beef and the other was the Gambler house car.

I forgot about the gambler car. If you have pictures of them you should post them here. BTW how's Florida?

I have no pics of the doors. The last time I was up there which was 4 years ago they were still on. Love Florida should have moved here years before I did. I might make it up to Bubba Raceway this month or next. I will break the camera out and go at it again. It depends on funds. It is 3 hours one way and trafffic at Tampa is not pretty depending on the time you go by there.

Great pix, High In The First Turn. As you know, I was close to Johnny for many years and saw him race since he returned home from, I believe, Korea. I still have one of the baseball caps with "96" on that he gave me years ago. Some of these pix instantly take me back 60 years -- like it was yesterday..
