Guess Who ??


HELLO MARSTON,
AROUND ABOUT 1965-66 THIS FELLOW GOT TIRED OF DRIVING FENDER FLAPPING HEAPS OF JUNK. THE CONSTANT UNDEPENDABILITY OF THE OLD CROCKS MADE
HIM SNAP. FOR AWHILE HE VANISHED, INQUIRIES WERE MADE. HAD HE CHANGED RELIGIONS, MOVED, TAKEN A TRIP, FLUSHED HIMSELF DOWN THE TOILET??
WHEN WE FOUND OUT HIS WHERE ABOUTS WHICH WAS AT HOME, HE WAS SORT OF SECRETIVE, HILDA HAD HER LITTLE BOY AGAIN, HE WAS NOT RUNNING THE ROADS
WITH US, NO HE WASN'T PREGNANT.
THE REASON FOR THE SELF IMPOSED CLOISTERING AND CURFEW FINALLY CAME OUT, HE WAS SAVING FOR A BRAND NEW CAR. AFTER MUCH TELEVISION WATCHING,
NO CENTRAL HOTEL, ONLY NOSE TO THE GRIND STONE, THE DAY FINALLY CAME.
THE GM DEALER IN LAPRAIRIE HAD RECEIVED THE NEW SET OF WHEELS. OUR HORDE
WENT TO SEE, TO DROOL. VERY LITTLE CHROME, NO GOOGAWS, A PLAIN
JANE CAR THAT LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING YOUR GRANDMOTHER WOULD TOOT AROUND
IN. AFTER A SORT OF GENTLE BREAK-IN PERIOD AND TAMING, THE CAR WAS READY. TASCHEREAU BLVD HAD TO BE RETAKEN AND TAMED.THIS CAR WAS A SLEEPER, NOBODY
GAVE THE CAR A SECOND LOOK AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS. WHEN THE LIGHTS WENT
FROM RED TO GREEN, THE SCREECHING OF TIRES, PLUS THE SMOKE, JAWS DROPPED,
ALL OTHER TRAFFIC RACERS WERE SUCKED IN ONE EXHAUST PIPE THEN BLOWN OUT THE
OTHER. THE BOULEVARD WAS TAMED, NOBODY CAME CLOSE, OTHERS THAT HAD BOUGHT
BIGGER AND BETTER CARS DIDN'T BEST THE TASCHEREAU TERROR. ON TO BIGGER AND BETTER CONQUESTS MAYBE.

The pic is a bit fuzzy but I think we can put a name on him..
Marston: The fellow standing beside his sleeper drag car is Don Ridewood.
