I lived in Tucker for 10 years but didn't have my Vette then.
you are NOT FastFreddie unless your last name is Spencer.
the one and only FastFreddie is Freddie Spencer..
PERHAPS NO SPORTSMAN in the history of motorcycle racing
ever achieved as much, as quickly, and at such a tender age
as the young man who, in the mid 1970's, rocketed to the
attention of the American public as Fast Freddie Spencer.
Born in 1961 in Shreveport, Louisiana, Freddie Spencer began
riding motorcycles as a toddler at the age of four. At five,
he was competing in TT Scramble dirt track events in Dallas,
Texas. By the age of eleven, when most young boys are
thrilled just to hear the sound of playing cards in the
spokes of a bicycle, Freddie Spencer had already won ten
state motorcycle racing championships in Short Track and
Dirt Track events.
In 1972, with those ten championships under his belt, he
made his first foray into roadracing, fielding a 100cc
Yamaha twin at Green Valley Raceway in Dallas, Texas in the
0-250cc stock production class. The dirt track experience
paid off for Freddie: by 1977, he had won twelve national
roadracing championships competing in both AMA- and
WERA-sanctioned race events.
Great video ... and Vettes I remember from the 50s and on. Nostalgia -- in
a friends 57 with dual quads ... driving a 63 340 hp (I think it was ) and
being blown away .. a friends 59 fuelie. running my 71 454 down a country
road at 130 plus. My Honda Accord is great car .. but quite boring. But
my wife likes it.
