Girls Like Them Fast And Furious Too!Written by Sue DeFiore
While today we have women racing in Indy, NASCAR and a variety of different racing venues, years ago this wasn’t case.
In fact, during era I grew up in women were looked upon in a very different light. If you deviated from norm you were labeled as a “tomboy”. However, there were many, like myself who loved to drive, work on cars and got a lot of satisfaction in doing so. Just because we did however, didn’t mean we weren’t women, girls, ladies, whatever you wish to be called.
Many of us so called “tomboys” were product of being first born girls with dads who wanted prodigal son first, but got a daughter instead. My dad and I watched sports together, baseball, football, basketball. In fact, my dad was neighborhood dad (those who grew up when I did will understand) and played with all kids in neighborhood. We would have touch football games, kickball, baseball, t-ball and even badminton and volleyball games.
I developed an avid interest in cars, because my dad worked for Rolls Royce and was always bringing some great cars home. He brought home Joe Namath’s Jaguar, a Silver Cloud Rolls Royce (owned by one of builders in area I grew up). In fact I got to drive it, which was a thrill to say least.
Cars had character back then, you could tell them apart. While my dad for years drove a Ford Station wagon (for business), he also owned Dodge’s and some Chevy’s. My mother loved Mustang and got one in 1965. I liked them bigger, so my first car was a 1962 Chevy Belair (2 door). I nicknamed her “The Black Beauty” she was a great car.
