Portrait of Joey

Joey had a 1966 Mustang which he acquired at 15 years old. Joey and his father restored the Mustang in their garage. His father had been into car racing his entire life and that’s how Joey grew up.

The Mustang was Joey’s first and only car and he drove it everywhere. Joey noted that he always had to be very cautious while driving.

Joey was from Santa Clarita, California, USA and completed Mission View Public Charter for high school. He was working in the structural steel industry. Joey mostly installed I- beams all over Los Angeles, and sometimes even worked on skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles.

Joey said that anyone who’s never been to Willow Springs International Raceway, “should definitely come out and see what it was like.”

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet."
