WILD CHERRY

As a teenager Don Fox became interested in the automobile in general and body and paint work in particular. Don’s curiosity led him to seek out one of the masters of the trade in South Denver , Jim Albey. Don pursued his dreams and quickly began to improve his skills and soon became a master of metal and paint in his own right. Don Fox was involved in drag racing in 1961 with Lovell Baker. Baker had come out of the stock car ranks and had quite a reputation in that class. Their gas dragster was powered by a Blown Small Block Chev V8 and sported a very attractive paint job sprayed by Don. This car was very respectable in its class. At the end of 1961, Don ventured out on his own, to build a dragster that would become the most distinctive and beautiful dragster that had been built in the Denver area up to that time. Don’s creation debuted at the Sabers ‘Tri State Auto Show of 1963’ where it won Best Paint, Best Engineered, and the Peoples Choice awards. Don was on hand at Continental Divide Raceway in June 1963 for his first outing with his new ‘Wild Cherry’ digger. This was one of the first dragsters to be fitted with a full body, and a very impressive paint job. It was truly a ‘Thing of Beauty.’
