Wish I hadn't.

 

When I entered high school in the mid '60s there was a 20 something around town with a '55  409 that was a legendary street racer. The car was absolutely insane and every Monday at school there would be rumors of races he won out on the 4th concession road out of town that past Fri and Sat nights. The car was black like the one in American Graffiti and well known on sight. He would drive around town and if you caught his eye, pointed your finger at the car and made a circular motion he would oblige with a chirp of the tires. I saw him once just before graduating, working as a gaffer on our high school stage lighting climbing ropes and swinging around. He wore leather pants like Jim Morrison and was cool as shit.

 

So when I saw that 409 I googled Ken Zayette and found his obit. I guess he worked at the nickle mine in Sudbury for 40 years and retired in 2010 and passed in 2014 at 69 making him about 5 years older than me.  I guess you never really die for as long as you are remembered.

We had a guy like that, he had his 409 stuffed in an Anglia gasser that was made street legal. Instead of chirping the tires he would pull the front wheels about a foot off the pavement leaving a stoplight. His car got featured in HRM in the late 60s or early 70s.
