Don Blair of Los Angeles, California was a member of the LA Gophers Car Club. Don was the owner of Blair's Speed Shop in Pasadena, and actually one of the first people to set up a speed shop in Southern California. His success on the lakes before the war gave him a reputation for hot rod ingenuity. Blair was known to stay away from “conventional” engine set ups and would use anything from Roots-type Mercedes Benz superchargers to blown Chevys. Aside from lakes racing, Don was involved sprint car racing and funny cars.
