This 70 yellow Mustang was owned by Doug Batson.
I have said that you should never have as many close friends as you have fingers on one hand. If you have more than that you are a lucky soul. Doug was a friend that would do anything I would have asked of him. He was the kind that if you was in jail he would be sitting beside you saying were did we screw up. I meet Doug about 8 years ago and until his illness there was few car shows that you did not see us parked together then racing out of the show and down the road to some place to eat before we said our good-byes for the week. In the off season we still got together and talked on the phone a couple times a week.
