1937: BEFORE JOEY CHITWOOD AND "LUCKY LUCY" THERE WAS A LUCKY TETER
Only we over 70's oldsters will recall "Lucky Teter." He was a household word back during the many Septembers he appeared at the New Jersey State Fair. I was only a little toddler when I went to the fair so I can't really say I remember seeing him. However, as I grew up, so did a guy named Joey Chitwood who did most of the same daring stunts as his predecessor. Perhaps my favorite was the beautiful "Lucky Lucy" DiNatale. She and her lovely ladies brought a certain class to the art of daredevil driving. I can still see a lovely Lucy DiNatale, her jet black hail shimmering in the breeze. All of us neighborhood guys hung out at Rocky DiNatale's "Rocky's Auto Service" on Edwin and South Olden Avenue. I remember Rocy and Lucy's two beautiful children, Janice and Ronnie.
