MISS HURST & MISS FIREBIRD

A great Lady that Raytona and I get kissed by her every year in York Penna., at the York US30 Musclecar Madness Show. . Linda and Richard Petty have the greatest memory of any one I know.
As she stated at her induction into the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame in N.C., "the only thing false about her, is her eyelashes".
Love ya Lady!
Starting time! Linda Vaughn, with the big blonde hair and blossomy breasts, puts down her Coca-Cola and the potato chips and slips off her red stretch pants and her white blouse and walks out of the officials' booth in her Rake-a-cheek red showgirl's costume with her long honeydew legs in net stockings and climbs up on the red Firebird float. The Life Symbol of stock-car racing! Yes! Linda, every luscious morsel of Linda, is a good old girl from Atlanta who was made Miss Atlanta International Raceway one year and was paraded around the track on a float and she liked it so much and all the good old boys liked it so much, Linda's flowing hair and blossomy breasts and honeydew legs, that she became the permanent glamour symbol, of stock-car racing, and never mind this other modeling she was doing...this, she liked it. Right before practically every race on the Grand National circuit Linda Vaughn puts down her Coca-Cola and potato chips. Her momma is there, she generally comes around to see Linda go around the track on the float, it's such a nice spectacle seeing Linda looking so lovely, and the applause and all. "Linda, I'm thirstin', would you bring me a Coca-Cola?" "A lot of them think I'm Freddie Lorenzen's girl friend, but I'm not any of 'em's girl friend, I'm real good friends with 'em all, even Wendell," he being Wendell Scott, the only Negro in big-league stock-car racing. Linda gets up on the Firebird float. This is an extraordinary object, made of wood, about twenty feet tall, in the shape of a huge bird, an eagle or something, blazing red, and Linda, with her red showgirl's suit on, gets up on the seat, which is up between the wings, like a saddle, high enough so her long honeydew legs stretch down, and a new car pulls her -- Miss Firebird! -- slowly once around the track just before the race. It is more of a ceremony by now than the national anthem. Miss Firebird sails slowly in front of the stands and the good old boys let out some real curdle Rebel yells, "Yaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhoooooo! Let me at that car!" "Honey, you sure do start my motor, I swear to God!" "Great God and Poonadingdong, I mean!"

Seen her at Bakersfield, Ca. Famoso Raceway last year at the March meet and she really looked great.
I just found a picture my mother took of Ms. Vaughn and I in the Goodyear Suite/Tower on the 4th turn at Daytona International Speedway. I wish I knew how to post an already developed picture on this page. When I figure some way of doing so I will. My mother Pamela Roberts took the picture.
Many moons ago, I got this book as a Christmas gift with Linda on the cover. I took it to Nashville in the early 80s and had a ton of drivers autograph it - King, Kyle, Tim Richmond, DW, Rudd, etc. I even got autographs from CooCoo Marlin, Junior Johnson, Dale Inman AND country singer T.G. Sheppherd. All those in one night & then the book was shelved.
To this day, the one person I'd really like to have sign it is Linda herself. But I really have no clue as to the best way to get it to her.
