    Just Got This:
    Dino,
    I went to the reunion this morning, it was good to see so many Willys coupes, 33 & 40-41, Thought I might see one of the Cambusters, but after I thought about it, it seems unlikely I would recognize them or them me after 46 years.
    I am planning to go to Island Dragway in October, maybe I will see you then.

    Thats Why we Had name tags at the Winter Dover Fest 😀

    Yes, I do live in Winston Salem…planned a long weekend around the Reunion, a ballgame(Mets), and seeing some old buddies from my Norwalk Neighborhood. It was a Great Reunion, saw some old(er) familiar faces, some great cars. I e-mailed you some pics, I’ll put the rest on a disc and send them to you. Looking forward to Island in Oct.!

    well this is probably my 10th or more reunion, but it is the first one for my Uncle Al, the owner builder and driver of the Bee Line Willy”s. I can not thank you guys enough. When Paul fired up his ’33, Al perked up and said to me now that sound brings back some very serious memories. On behave of all my family, I want to thank Grover, Smokey, V-Bob and all of you who made this such a special day for him and his family.
    On behalf of all of us in the Al Zerberini-Bee Line Crew, our heart felt thanks.
