Tom Wolfe wrote about those days and the birth of stock car racing interviewing lot of those characters in an Esquire article back in the 60 s or early 70s.If you want a copy Dan send me your mailing address.
Except for riding through downtown Knoxville, it sounds like a fun adventure. Spring is my busy work travel time, but I will do what I can to participate if this comes together.
Always enjoyed the movie. Keely Smith was a famous singer in the '50s. Worked with Louie Prima. The acting is a little stiff.You never know if he made it out alive. OK, I guess we know. That what he gets for driving a Ford.
Is it just me or did the motor and exhaust of the cars they used in the movie sound like 6 cylinders with split manifolds?Actually back in that era of moonshine hauling, many of the haulers put Cadillac motors in the haulers. When I worked for ABC we made a still bust in Yadkin Co NC and the old guy actually had a 40 Ford coupe, that was actually a retired runner from that era, in and old building that had the Caddy motor. We couldnít take it because it didnít have any liquor in it. But it almost did🤔👿A little more trivia I learned during the 9 years I working at ABC, part time after I formerly retired in 07, was that during most all runs there was a lead car that would BUST through the route and lead the ATF (FEDS) on a chase and the hauler would just cruise on through. It was a constant cat and mouse game between the LAW and the Shiners. The biggest discovery the Feds made was that they didnít have to depend on snitches, which was far and few between, nor stomp all over the mountains looking for the Stills. They discovered that all they had to do was to follow the SUGAR trail.My unit that I left a couple years ago now busted 3 large stills this year. However the worst punishment thatís handed out now days is that the IRS gets involved and the back taxís shuts the stills down for years to come.
Please let me know when you find the actual location of the parked dozers in "Vanishing Point"
i think it was some form of Chrysler product...
The Mayor most likely rides on those roads, he lives right there Dan. (hint, hint)
