ABOUT.....ME continued.

Some other cars I had while in Palm Beach High School, were a 35 Ford Roadster. We chopped the roof and it looked neat.
Here's a picture

MY 35 FORD ROADSTER in front of my Dad's 52 Olds, and MY 46 HUDSON across the street:

We used to go to the races in Daytona, when the Speedway was located on the beach.Here's a picture of what it looked like in 1953.

High School was fun...and we had lots of it.
We had Fraternity's when we went to school and I belonged to the "Tekes".That was short for Theta Kappa Omega. We did everything together.There was 4 frat's and 4 Sorority's as I recall.I have a picture of the Teke's at a dance we sponsored in 1951.

The Jolly TKO's in 1951:Thats me 5th. from the right.My best friend Jim Bruner is 2nd. from right.

Beach parties were a popular sport.Here's a picture taken at one..We would build a big campfire on the beach, spread our blankets, and have a nitetime picnic...Really neat, but they won't even let you build a fire on the beach now you'd have to be armed to protect yourself.Glad I grew up in a time much better than nowdays!!!

Me & Pat & others On the Beach in 1952.
