dirty shoes = real

high heels = fake

Fake is image without content and all too common. Kinda sad that Real is unusual and refreshing these days.

Wow and she did it with such a small pit crew.

Yes! finally. She was instrumental in keeping folks up to date during the War (mailing out the news letters and pictorials) and her efforts along with Karl were nothing short of amazing. More of this type of stories need to be done. Thanks!

I love seeing girls that are truely into cars, not just the ones who think buying a fancy new one makes them a car girl. The ones who'll come into the garage and get dirty with ya, and the one's who don't think the exhaust is too loud...

Cool write-up, indeed.
I'll definitely be sending a link of it out to a couple hot rod girls that I've gotten to know better lately....
They've spent a bunch of time out on the salt and in the shop, themselves.

Please tell her I said "hi" and I'm waiting patiently for her to intro on the HAMB. Also mention to her to let her Dad know there are cookies being delivered to Bill's office tomorrow and John should pop in there for a few.

I might be a little bit in love with the girl in the picture. Who knows what she might have have been like in real life, but she's just about perfect in this picture.

Does anybody know anything about Peggy Brendel pictured above?
I met an elderly lady once and she told me at one time she was one of the top woman racers...I cant remember her name though and I wished I could but I know she lives/lived in Glendora Ca.
She told me she was well known for screaming at the top of her lungs all the way down the drag strip, and that people knew her for that. Anybody know who Im talking about?

You got it, Denise. I figured you'd know exactly who I was talking about. I'll give her a little nudge to see if she'll join and do an intro.

They were kind enough to invite me out to their house/shop for the family Thanksgiving and a shop tour. They are the real deal, the best, every one of them. More on that later....

Thanks boss.
I've never quite figured out the fishnet stocking, roller derby chicks with cars Schtick.
Give me a woman with a little grease under her nails and I'm a happy guy.
My ex used to work side by side with me on engine swaps.
