When I was in HS back in 60-64, I had a 1936 Plymouth convertable with rumble seat and running boards . It was custom painted a candy apple red with silver flake and a white rag top. It was "the bomb" Wish I still had it today. I would be down on the square during ventage car nights. Your video brought back lots of memories. . . .Thanks

Your story tickled me LG. Everyone wanted to race me. I had a triple black 59 Corvette with a white convertible top, 283, 3 speed, wheel hopping 373 (I think) rear end. Just a looker - not a runner. It'd be worth 6 figures today on the block at Barrett Jackson. And that's how it all began.

Had a '67 vette, black on black, stock 427 Turbo-Jet with 3 deuces. With good shifting and just a little burn out of the hole, I could turn low 12's in the quarter mile. We raced on the "Connecting Hwy. in Queens.The Connecting Highway in New York in the '60s was THE place for street racing. Everybody knew it and so did the cops. The Connecting Hwy. is a stretch of road that connects the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to the Grand Central Parkway. Overpass to overpass was a quarter mile. Money runs were usually after midnight on Friday nights. Guys would arrange races at a diner on Queens Blvd., and then settle-up later that night. The cops finally closed it down in the early '70's by blocking the exit ramps with baracades. This little strip had the dubious reputation for the most tickets ever issued in one place in a single day in NY....the record still stands I think. Spectators would get ticketed too if they didn't run off. Won a few lost a few. Survived. Never saw any serious wrecks but I did see more than a few blown engines. When dudes began towing-in their specially tuned cars, it was time to just watch. That's about the time the cops got really serious too.

Did have some hot cars but the most fun was a 1936 WC Allis chal Tractor with a 283 stroked out to 339 with a Chevy truck trans in it(tractor pulling in the beginning) that was a lot of fun. Took the eng. out of our stock car, old days not nascar.

1967 Yenko Camaro. 427 and hot!!!! I miss that car -- it put me through college. Guys wouldn't bother finding out what was under the hood and you just know that girls can't drive!

Wudda if I cudda -- it got totalled when the CHP set up a road block around a curve with no warning flares. Scratch my baby and I ended up in hospital for 18 months. But I'd probably still have her but for that. She was bright orange, with the stripes and YENKO on the rear fenders. She really was an awesome car.

Even worse, this was in the days of contributory negligence so if you were found even .0001% negligent, you collected nada and there was no question I was speeding. Ultimate settlement was they pay for my medical bills related to accident for the rest of my life. So far, that's been over $3M.
