I'd imagine a safe bet would be on Clyborn where the serious racing took place. I never saw him race the car and unfortunately for me, never got to be part of the street race scene on Clyborn.

Your correct Bob D. Clyborn was a Hot place to be on Friday night until the boy's in blue would shut us down, so we moved over to Old Mannheim Rd. Just west of the New Mannheim Rd. Old Mannheim Rd. Was next to O'Hare Airport out in the sticks know one would see us,hear us, or bother us it was a great time 1969 thur June of 1970 then Uncle Sam called.
That's funny (49) years latter the grandkids and myself are still playing with this Camaros and Corvetts of the 60's. T

I'm a transplant, I started hanging out in the car scene in 1992. My buddy used to street race this car I'm guessing in the 80's.
