If you know why Chick gets his own post, then you're on the right website. Seriously, who else celebrates a legendary Indy mechanic and spark plug company rep

Chick Hirashima was the last of the riding mechanics. I've posted about him before I'm pretty sure, but 7 or 8 years ago.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I've worked at Autolite for 2 years now, and I've never heard of Chick Hirashima. He lived a hell of a life. I forwarded this story to my co-workers.

    1. Cool... ! You're welcome! I posted about Chick many years ago, but, that's lost somewhere in the 26,500 posts. I tried to find it but no luck, it takes too darn long, sometimes, to find something I posted before I started using tags
