"Fast Cars & Women" Perfect Circle 91 Indy 500, 1926

Orange's Blog

Orange L. W. Howell, a spirited person of 153 years who occasionally moonlights in luxury retail, lives passionately in New York City's East Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Orange L. W. Howell is my name and @ 151 years old I can assure you I speak with opinions in their various shades of gray. Black n' white thinking is fools talk, easily palatable for most folks, but then most don't live past 90 before they can't think right. About the name +color, "William & Mary of Orange" I was born in 1861 the year the Civil War began. Eighth generation American, Quaker, Hoosier, Welsh, originally a Farmer. I grew up Henry County, Blountsville, Indiana. Parents were Hilary Howell and Fanny Bedwell-Howell, and my first lovely wife was named Ella Chamness, we had four children. Everyone is in the ground.

Thanks to my old friends at Perfect Circle, those Teetor inventors and Wilbur Wright  who was always coming back to his birth place...P.C. created a special invention for me, knowing I was a seventh son of a seventh son...So I can go forever into the future flying, just can't take me back, only forward. My stomping grounds are the streets of Manhattan, New York City... especially the East Village. The neighborhood spirit is most like the home in my heart or at least it was in the 80's...♥

Perfect Circle 91 won the Indy 500 in 1926 (Lockhart-Miller) Congratulations to a century of racing @ Indianapolis Motor Speedway 

LORE: Frank Lockhart qualified on the pole for the 1927 Indianapolis 500 in his Perfect Circle 91 Miller. Lockhart led the opening 81 laps, and a full 107 before his car broke a connecting rod, setting an opening lap-leader record that stood for 64 years. The Perfect Circle 91 represents the epitome of 1920s American race car design and ownership.  Teetor Brothers of Perfect Circle Piston Rings became friends of Orange Howell through the marriage of his grandson Ralph Howell to one of Frank Teetor's twin girls.  Those two ladies could drive and clutch smoother than any man at the shop, hence the origin of "Fast Cars & Women".
