I remember Baltic Auto, I bought a few parts there, I also bought stuff at Kreb's Auto; and place around the area between Pecos and Tejon south of Alameda, it was owned Charlie Brotherton; my other racing amigos were Jim Binkley and Bob Couch Sr., and Bob Wallace who was Pat Frazier's step dad.

If my memory is working right, I had one car that Matt Lane and I was building that somehow mysteriously found it's way to ABC or is it ABZ Truck parts/wrecking just off West Evans, between South Broadway and South Federal, anyway the who this car belonged to was straightened out and I got a few dollars for it, and the not finished '56 Ford 2-door was finished (not by me, it's new owner) and made it's way around Englewood Speedway in the F-8's, it was a Baltic Auto car number 2, it was the car that rear end got tore out of when it rolled a couple of times in an F-8 race. I'm sure some of the old F-8er's will remember.

LAKESIDE - Late at night by the old Lakeside Speedway, you can hear the ghosts - The barking, crackling "Flathead Fords", the zinging "Chevy Stove Bolt's", The rumbling of the "KK-Offy's", and the snarling "Ford V8-60's". Listen and faintly hear the announcer say, "Ladies and gentlemen, the line up for the trophy dash," and the place would erupt with the mix echoes of cheers and boo's...Remember...
