    Dragging Main! What a great idea. I am K. Jeanene Haynes Champion. In 1949, I had a 1936 Chevy with a whooptie, whoo, whoo, whistle on it.

    I moved from South Bend to Grandview after graduating in 1949. I started working at General Electric and met Mary Lou (Poehlein) Parker, Mary (Tabelman) Wilgus, Jessie (Young) Schroeder, Nita Meyers and Dot (Lasher) Kessner. My new friends and I loved to drag Main Street.
