This picture was taken in 1955 on Manning St. just north of Ninth Ave. in Winfield. Donnie has just turned 15 and his dad Bus Jenkins has had this car customized for him as a birthday present. Bus Jenkins owned Jenkins Lincoln - Mercury on 9th in the background of the picture. The car behind Donnie's car looks like Biff Hess's '49 Ford. Donnie was fullback on the Vikings football team.
