Excellent story and I have been fortunate enough to meet Lucky a few times between 1971 and 1973. I was a kid that Jack Jackson of Charleston took under his wing and was learning the sport and working on his racecar. He hired Lucky to paint a couple cars over those years (No. 97 and No. 37). He was definitely a unique individual. Never bother him when he worked and he only spoke a few words. We did talk once when he was done painting and he was interesting. He also painted cars for James Dew and I believe Walt Knox in the local area. Brings back great memories. It was sad to see his old station wagon leave when he was done because he was such a great artist!
