Once I had purchased the ’59 Sport Fury for drag racing. I wanted to start my own Company based on my new career. Although I was an amateur racer I aspired to have a professional career in drag racing. I called my new Company “Northern Racing Enterprises”. At the same time I was apprenticing for my Mechanic’s License at Mount Pleasant Motors and racing my ’59 Sport Fury. As it turned out, I did not activate the new Company. Instead I devoted my time to racing. I was 19 years old.
