Another special episode to spend more time with our dads, as we continue and return home (again) to speak with Lalita’s father, Morgan Chemello, lending the story of his early days of tearing apart tricycles, his few years working with Roush and the pace cars of the IndyCar series, and his work now of over 20 years with the General (GM), with much in-between. Examples: Double-front cars. Datsun trucks with Chevy engines. Pace car drives around Laguna Seca. Blackwing. C8 work. Tune on in.
Note from Lalita:
There’s something special about spending time with your family and really listening to their stories. Not to say that Josh and I don’t and haven’t (cause we do), but these episodes gave us a platform to hear stories that were never shared with us prior, something we will cherish moving forward. I know there are many more stories to hear, and in having done this, I hope we get opportunities to do these episodes again in the future. And maybe not just with our fathers, but others too.
If you ever have the opportunity to sit down with loved ones and hear some tales, we absolutely encourage it. Even try to make some time to do so. Hear what else they might have to say. You might learn some really neat things. Things you can share with your family in the years to come.
Included this week is the article featured in the newspaper of my father’s high school shop creation. I’ve seen the picture before, but I thought it would be just as fun to share it.
A big thanks to both Frank Pohl and Morgan Chemello (thanks dads!), for letting us pull them into the podcast world. They were incredibly open to it, and I find both of them quite enjoyed it.
