You Remember ....2 stores ...Duchess Turnpike in Poughkeepsie and Rt.9w in Kingston. Home of "Mr Ed" Mopar! Had their famous "Friday Sales " at both stores. Supported a lot of Hudson Valley racers and regulars at Dover.

Hi guys, you too Dino! Long time. I met someone at a car show (JJ) in Florida who had a Dover Drag Strip T-Shirt on, needless to say I flipped we spent sometime talking about Dover and you Dino, he gave me your web site, GLADE he did! Anyway M & M is still pedaling parts, now in Florida (Ft, Lauderdale 24 yrs.) mostly G-Body new & used and some speed parts @ good prices. I see you have a picture of the Dart on the top of your home page and one in our page, thanks for remembering us. Dover and all you were so much of our lives growing up (not that anyone has). I have some pics I will dig out and send to you.
Anyone wanting to contact us can by e-mail @ http://www.mmspeedcustom@aol.com or phone 1-888-327-0454 also visit our web site @ http://www.mandmspeed.com (not completed yet,don't leave mail there).
Thanks so much Dino for doing this I'm sure everyone must feel the same and if we can help in anyway just let me know. Rich Marchese, M&M Speed and Custom
PS: Sorry to say Tony (Chick) Chickery aka Mr Ed has passed away of cancer, I know he would love to be remembered on your site!

We've been real busy lately, but Bill (stormking2) has a great Tony chickery story. We were running him for the eliminator title one sunday, and it started to rain. They decided to run the cars anyway. Try THAT today! anyway; Tony was sharp enough to short shift his car to pull the motor down to hook up, and Bill spun. Tony beat him. Tony picked up his winnings and came over to Bill and handed him half! He made some comment like, "that was't a real race" or "we'll race again " or something to that effect. He was a class act. We broke something one day and Tony sent his crew back to his shop to get us parts to run. he was one of the best. we were very sorry to hear of his passing; we were hoping to see him again.
I'm sure I've got Tony's words wrong. I'll try ot get Bill on here with the real story.

Got a great Dino Chickery Story, Dino might rembember. The Dart was painted three colors, base color was white, right side (pass) white w/red hightlights & driver side white w/blue, well Dino always being in the tower only saw one side of the car (pass) well one day someone let him out of the tower, he came down to the pits and was bs'n with us and was on the driver side of the car he relized it was a different color and said I didn't know you guys have two of these cars!! We always loved u Dino.
