In 2020 Larry Ewing told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that he remembered seeing Dawn's Merc at Dick and Dale's Upholstery Shop late in 1958. "She was in the same high school as me, Sequoia, class of '59. She was out of my league as I was a shy guy and never approached her." According to Larry, Dawn was a trendsetter. "The only female in a male-dominated world at the time." Larry recalled hearing or reading that her dad was killed in WWII, "maybe at Pearl Harbor, and this Merc was in his honor."
