thanks for posting, I couldn't remember. Earlier there was a '55 Chevy with Swamp Guinea on the side aslo if memory serves me right. Long time since we would race at Cummins, Hartwell or Lavonia and run into different folks than the mountain tracks.

Doug is what we used to call "good people". He was (was, because I haven't seen him in years) always friendly and enjoyable to be around at the track. He once had a Chevelle that had a trailer hitch on the back bumper, it had been on there when he found the bumper, he said that since he had added that bumper seemed like everyone wanted to hit him in the rear.

Falcon Red he is doing well a good friend of mine shoots either bows or guns with him and his son David . He said he shot with them for quite a while before he every figured out who Doug was. He said he is quite a humble man never bragging about any of his accomplishments which were many. I remember the year he won 42 races I think that is right including the world 100 like you said good people

I was hunting near Washington with Fulmer years ago and we met up with Doug and someone else coming out of the woods. He had been hunting in the same area.

Slick, is that the Mickey Mouse car you are thinking about? That was what he drove when we started going to Thunder Valley in 1979.
