If you were a teenage driver in Westport around the time this photo was taken — and judging by the car, it was the 1970s — you remember this scene:
The target was painted on Bayberry Lane — the hill just north of the Merritt Parkway.
It was a real hill then too — not the measly mound it is today. (It was probably flattened because someone painted that target.)
I don’t know the artist. Someone did a great job.
And had the right idea.
You really could get air, particularly with a good rate of speed southbound.
Of course, those were the days when auto repairs were fairly cheap.
