Oh and for my non-birthday I finally joined Facebook. I haven gotten off for two days, and I'm beat. I have forgotten how many friends I had growing up in Atlanta in the 60's and 70's.

It's very possible. Even at that age I was a big flag waver and didn't care who knew. As patriotic as they come.

Happy birthday Gary. I grew up in Winder Ga., but now live in NC. I will be going down to Winder for my aunt's 90 B-day later this month. Pretty sure I want make it to age 90, if I do, I'm pretty sure I will be out of money.

Thanks Eddie. Wow Winder...whenever we wanted to get away from Atlanta for a few days we would always head to a friends house his parents was renting in Winder. It was on a Black Angus farm. Remember the skating rink? We use to hit that place up for the country chicks. Man, what memories. If you were around in 69 to maybe 72 we may have met. Use to hang around a pool hall in town. Is Winder still a small town?

That was my dads car. 390, auto, Galaxy, red interior. We had a blast in that thing. Dad had a new top installed and the afternoon mom brought it home my younger brother Andy opened an umbrella in the back seat and poked a hole in the top. The kicker...he was singing 'Rain drops keep falling on my head" I couldn't stop laughing , he was only 3 years old so dad couldn't really get mad at him. Andre, my dad, we didn't call him dad we called him Andre, he asked me to fix the hole so I got a bicycle tire patch kit and used the big square piece and glued it on. Stayed that way until my brother got a hold of the car and cracked the block one winter. There was a problem with that big fill tank that Ford used over the top of the rad. The neck broke, work was done and no anti freeze was used. Cracked the block. Not a big Ford fan but really miss that car, miss my dad, he's gone now.

Gary,
Winder is still seems like small town to me when I visit there.  There is a lot of growth to the north and west side of Winder.  I lived there until maybe 6 or 7, so saying I grew up in Winder was not totally correct. My grandparents lived there, so we were down two or three times per year, until I got married. Only to return for racing at Road Atlanta or the GM National at Atlanta Drag way and funerals.  I have one remaining aunt that tells me "don't wait until I'm dead to come and see me".  So, for the past several years  I have been going down once a year to she her.

My fondest memories was the rabbit hunting with my uncles and the "Fourth of July" celebration where they had a "Greasy Pig Chasing" contest where you got to keep the pig if you could catch that slippery rascal. When I found out, that I could not catch or hang on to a 50 lb.  pig,  I just started watching. What a hoot, I laughed even harder as I grew older watching kids and some adults try their luck for some bacon, pork chops and barbecue.

My wife and I celebrated our 41st at the Carlisle GM National.  Congrats to you and yours !!!

I've been in a few of those greasy pig chases, great fun, especially after a few beers. I mentioned to some of the local farmers here where I live in Delaware and none have ever heard of it. Fourth of July was always at Stone Mountain for me. Best place I have ever been for fireworks. Must have been on that mountain 1000 times. My wife and I went to Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia when we got married in 85 and the fireworks weren't too bad there on the 4th, but Stone Mountain was the best I think.

Well..  (should I be ashamed to admit this?)...  while I was in Frederick for the Camaro Nationals... One of the guy's wives mentioned it was her birthday, and her husband said he would buy her lunch from the vendor outside..   Smiley  

That triggered something in my head.. so I glanced at my watch to see what day it was... and realized that it was the 20th of June..  Mine and my wife's 44th Wedding Anniversary!...   so I said....
'OMG..   I probably should call home and wish her a happy anniversary!"...
... Which I did later that evening... Smiley   and I took her out to the most expensive restaurant in town the following Saturday night (a week later) after I got home...  Smiley

PS.  We were married on 20 June 1970 in the Chapel on Keesler AFB, MS... and took a honeymoon trip to New Orleans in my new lime green 70 Roadrunner!  Smiley      Forgive me for posting photos of an 'off-brand' in a Camaro website.. Smiley

Great pics Gary. We all want to see pics like this? Good looking couple. You got married on base too. I got married the first time at Dover in uniform. Have to see if I can dig out that picture. Knew a crazy fool that came from Keesler AFB in 76. I bought a 69 Charger 440 Magnum from him when he first got to Dover. Car had  crushed quarter right where the flip top gas cap was where he poled it. Had to finally sell it because the base police kept giving my wife tickets for parking in the wrong spots and speeding on base. Remember those parking spaces with the big round painted dots? NonComs couldn't park in those, at least at Dover.

I almost forgot, since Gary brought up the pic with his Roadrunner and wife, I remembered a friend took me to the dirt track races at Delmar International Raceway in Delmar Delaware for my birthday last week and I found this. I know it's not Camaro related either but couldn't help myself. Don't see much of this locally.

Not sure if it was a shower cap, way too big. He was just about ready to cover it up for the main events coming up when we were getting some beers out of my truck. The dirt flies at this track. Got smashed in the nose with a chunk of dirt while I was filming, caught me totally by surprise. Got hit 2 more times, once on the right cheek and once on the left shin and we were way up in the stands. Looked like I was in a fight. Run a lot of crate modified's, modified napa big blocks and Modified small blocks. Outlaws run here too. Will see them in August. I think Tony Stewart is supposed to be here when the outlaws run.
