Norman J. Green lived in Richmond in the 1950s. In 2016 he told Kustomrama that he would work at Clyde's Body Shop after school and on weekends; "It was there I learned to appreciate the skill these body men had. My stepdad was really into cars, and it was through his interest and knowledge that I became interested in the car scene. If you had a custom you were most likely in a car club called The Pacemakers. There were several others, but those guys were the kings. The weekend car scene was always at "Gordon's Drive Inn, and there were gas stations where you could hang out, and guys would pinstripe cars for $10.00!""
