    My Grandfather fixed cars during Prohibition, putting in secret compartments to hide illicit booze.

    My maternal grandfather in Mississippi ran a still, and his sons (my uncles) delivered the branch water by car. I still can get shine when I want. I have cherries soaking in shine in the frig so come next Christmas we’ll have chocolate covered cherries with a surprise!

    My Dad told me a story about when he and my uncle were young and sent to clean out the cellar of a relative who had died


    They found a quantity of moonshine it sounds like two drunk boys had themselves a fine time loading up the horse drawn wagon and driving it back to their own farm

    This has got to be confusing for her to hear. This is like the stuff I heard about my relatives. My parents carefully calculated what they said about relatives because they knew I was mining for information on how to prepare for a career, before the days of the Internet. So my mother told me her dad was “royalty” and “and economist.” It would be tough to prepare for those gigs, which was nonsense anyway.

    There was also a demand to maximize the performance of those vehicles to enable the drivers to outrun law enforcement trying to crack down on the spread of illegal alcohol.
    That was the beginning of Nascar.

    “She was just a moonshiner’s daughter, but he loved her still.”
