To be sure,to be sure
Bogeys were the forerunner of grand prix
racing cars.All you needed were 2 sets of
pram wheels a plank of wood and a wooden beer
crate with one side knocked out which served
as the drivers cockpit.Propulsion was supplied
by a willing acomplice(sex did not matter)who
could push the "vehicle" which you steered with
rope and stopped by application of shoe leather.
Usually however you just placed it on top of
a hill and off you went.Not many cars in the early
60s mind on the road.
If Butch can remember his time in Brownville he
would have lived beside the King Bogey maker John
Joe Kenny.He used to build bogeys with makeshift
windows and aroof.Unfortunately these models were
not too roadway and ended up being burned in Chicago style gangster games.
Combo JDP was played on the road at Faulkners and
was merely passing and scoring in Faulkners gate.
