    Hi Guys,
    Just got back from my first Dover Reunion. What a good job they did of putting this together, very nice. Spoke to Smokey and he told me this will be the last one at Marcus Dairy. Met at lot of real nice people from back when and had a good time. Brain M. had some photo’s of me in his big collection from Dover. I took a few pictues for you guys,but don’t know how to attach them, but I will try.

    guess everybody slept late today ? burned out from the Show. We’ve got plenty off photos promised..got to wait for the good ole U.S.Mail to get the monster CD to us…….Reminds me of waiting for the track clean-up crew – Ugh

    here’s some quick notes…Big Moe Deluge made it (He Ran DEBS), Al the Starters Daughter was a there for first time ( Tear in her eye-when her dad was mentioned in my recreated ‘welcome to Dover’ over PA)…old Chickery & Hamp S/S, pulled out of a barn still with old letttering….Ground shook and people amazed as Paul B. fired up the 34 Willys and inloaded the blown big block NETO racer.

    Hey Guys …Check in with your Reunion Comments !

    Dino,
    We had a great time at the reunion yesterday. We saw alot of people and had alot of fun. We really missed you!! Wendy Swift said ” it would have been so much better with Dino here”. You have done so much work for the reunion and website and we really appreciate it. Billy has been having THE BEST time playing with the computer and is trying to get old folks like Bobby LaRegina to use the computer

    Thanks Again Kathy

    The show was great but when Dino rallied the troops he put it over the top and thanks to Video Bob for putting that together. The FTA members were great to see and Chris Swift cool guy we’ll stay in touch with him . Nobody could miss the 34 Willys. THE pictures brought everyone back many times I was busy from 7am to 4pm. I was shot by the time I got home. My favorite car was BOB Krosky’s 68 bird ‘ Breakaway’. FTA club was the best of all them from Dover and most creative.Who saw Tink Schaefer? well, he was there too “Bewitched” the baddest 55 chevy on the f@#*’ing planet I’ll be back later with more. Brian THE Historian.

    Hi All!
    Lil thunder kid checking in, the reunion was really great! Dad (Joe Walko) was thrilled to get the T-Shirt and window decal. I have LOTS of photos, maybe 100….. Perhaps I’ll tease here and upload or snail mail. DINO< jump in and advise your preference.
    I brought dad’s photo album and his old Danbury Modifiers license placque. The
    E TEE ZER photos were a hit I also brought my old SIZE 4T pit crew shirt from 1969.
    Dino, it was great that you called in, you sounded great!
    here’s a couple of shots with many more to follow.
