started racing on the street. I think one of the best races he had
was between him and a woman,
beat him in the race so Mickey pulled her over to talk to her and
before they knew it they were married. When Mickey started he had
very little money.
dad was a police officer in LA so the family did not have much money
to spend on Autos.
This lack of money caused
build most of every thing himself
during the early years. We would weld up the cylinder heads inside
the combustion chamber to raise the compression ratio. He was even
known to have ground his own camshaft for his model "A" on
a bench grinder.
