Mr. Baskerville is someone I would have loved to have met. His writing style somewhat influences my own,as far as the occasional "tweaking(twisting?) of our under-appreciated language. As a fan of,and occasional(Shhh...) "participant" in nocturnal speed contests,I loved his articles on the really fast street cars of the late 1970's and very early 1980's. A couple that stood out in my mind were Lou Mancini's '68 Hemi Dart, and Nick Zuk's '71 Ford Maverick(with a 427 Tunnel Port mill under the hood). I spoke with Nick back in the late 1980's,(and if you're out there,I hope you're doing well! Same to you,Lou!))and the subject of that article came up. He said that they had a ball together,laughed long and hearty,and Gray loved the fact that Nick's car was pure Ford hot rod. That is evident in his writing in the article. I still have that issue of Hot Rod,and often go back and check that and other similar articles by Gray for the sheer pleasure of a good read gone better. Damn;I would have enjoyed a ride with him in the roadster,whatever the distance. He probably would have chastised me for consuming rye spirits,though... RIP,Mr B'ville!
