A great american dreams Are shattered in Many ways. The Young Man fresh out of College is full of ideas and intentions that will change the course of the world. Soon however making a living and getting along in the society in which we live become his biggest goals. The Young lady seems destined for a career. She s going to work right to the top travel see the world and let nothing stand in the Way of her career. But a Little band of Gold shatters most of the dream and usually the children that follow shatter the rest. Then there is the dream of the inventor the Guy who has a plan but no Money. Or there s the Guy with a business plan of making Money but no Cash to get started. Kace Drivers have a lot of Contact with these people but sometimes shatter their dreams. What happens is these people read where certain race Drivers Are making a lot of Money and that they Are pretty Nice Guys. They make Contact wanting to share a plan in Exchange for Cash to get a project started. A this Guy came to me once with plans for a cockroach trap a Cale Yarborough laughs. A yeah he said if id put up a few dollars and we could get this thing on the Market everybody would buy one because they would t need Poison to kill Cale recalls another Guy who wanted to go into business with his Money building parts for space ships. A you usually get most of these Type Calls right after winning a major race a a he says. Richard Petty says Stock brokers and real estate peo pie Are the ones who usually Bug him most. A but ill Tell you what a a he says a this lady Ead once and said she had read that i was a Nice Guy and had a lot of Money so she wanted me to build her a House which would Cost $15,000 a i talked to her a few minutes and tried to be Nice then i forgot about the Call. About a week later she called Back and said she had been thinking it All Over and instead of $15,000 it would be better if i would give Hei $25,000 so she could have her House keep smoking and get her hair fixed once a week a Petty says he gets Calls on new engine ideas. A we get a lot of Calls on automotive ideas but probably More Calls from Stock and real estate brokers than anyone How does he handle these Calls he now has some business people w to will listen. If the idea is Worth considering. Then they come Back to Petty with the idea a we consider some of the business deals Quot he says a and we lose on some. Remember the country tape several Drivers including myself were involved in where we Sang country songs a we All got Hung on that one or at least i done to recall making a single Buck off the Petty enterprises could have acquired the Chrysler ply mount Dealership in High Point not Long ago. But turned the Deal Down. Bobby Allison says the recent thing with him has been Calls from people connected with offshore Oil drilling. A these Guys keep calling and it s All pretty much the same. They Call one week and want to sell me Stock in this project and i turn them Down. They Call Back in about two or three weeks and Tell me How much Money they Are making from the Oil Well i did t get in on. And that All they need to Start another project is just a certain amount of Money from me a i Tell them if they re making so much from the first project they probably can t handle Money Well or they need my Cash to begin another Allison has a business manager who listens to a deals Quot and then explains them to Bobby a i have invested in some deals which did t pay a Allison admits a but i m More careful about it now than i once was. I Call it racing a i Don t even let people explain their deals i be heard so Many of David Pearson says. Pearson has several investments ail of them in his Hometown of Spartanburg. A people who Bug me most Are Stock and real estate brokers. After every race i win they keep the phone Busy and i Don t Deal with any of them. A i suppose the biggest Deal i got hooked on was a few years ago a Guy called and said he was with a Magazine and wanted to make a family portrait. I did t ask what Magazine and told him to come on. A few weeks later we received the portrait in the mail with a Bill for making it. We did t have one so we bought it from his company which had nothing to do with any Ewe Lascar Drivers now claim career winnings of at least a million dollars. Petty Pearson Allison Yarborough and the latest to join the club is buddy Baker who passed the Mark last week a what used to Bug me most was the 4 a in Calls from people who had these ideas Quot Baker says. A i have a business manager now who handles these Calls the ones that usually get me Are from people who want to build a 1950 race car and take it to the end of the Earth race track and me drive and great american dreams go on japanese girl takes Golf Lead by Benny Phillips associate sports editor Talladega Ala.
