"The Earlier Days..."

 

My First Teenager Car--1964 Chevelle

The photo of the Chevelle was taken around 1973.  It was my very first car right out of high school and I know where this car is today.  It is sitting on blocks in an empty field near Phenix City, AL with a Big Block under where the hood used to be, if it still had one.  I visited its location a few years  ago and it still had things like the Pioneer speakers I put in it in my parent's back yard one night, a hole in the inner front fender panel where the harmonic balancer flew off one day while driving down my neighborhood street, and a sheet metal patch riveted into the trunk where the driveshaft came flying out one night when I had it to the headliner with girls.

 

Herman "Big Mac" Baker's 1968 Camaro

The photos of the Camaro were taken probably around 1976 at the Phenix Dragway in Phenix City, AL just before I moved to California.  Look at me behind the wheel with that big Afro!  That was a big fashion change since the Chevelle days just a few years before.  The car had a 468 cubic inch Big Block with one carburetor and at the time these photos were taken, it was equipped with a Powerglide.  It was a consistent 10-second bracket car.

 

Herman Baker can be seen in the burnout photo with his hand on the roof.  He was 6' 9" and weighed over 300 pounds!  He died in 1992.  He was my best friend at the time and had a huge influence on my interest in drag racing, especially PRO Stock.
