Mom and grandma would buy me a 10 cent tootsie toy car if i was a good boy on their weekly shopping
trips down town. Being the youngest in the family I had to put up with this, My older brothers were customizers in the 50s and taught me how to work on cars. They would probably have their own TV show now and be millionaires. We were all just grease monkeys back them. I was forever hooked and still addicted to this day.
