My son and I had dropped my daughter off at a birthday party in our old neck of the woods and we were driving past the service station that used to be home to this hulk when we saw this 1968 Dodge Monaco.
The owner of the service station said it was okay to photograph the car but more interesting was his story of being one of the first African American drivers in what would be known later as NASCAR. He’s a wily old fella with a bunch of hunting stickers on the back of his late model F-150 and it was awesome to hear. I gotta go back sometime and record it. Car folks would enjoy his story, I’m sure.
