Hi, my name is Charlie Wilson, I’m sorry never got to go to Dover. I used to pal around with Steve Gabriel in Danbury. Used hang out at House of Speed on South St. after he took the place over from Paul. I helped out Steve with his cars and other guys cars that he did work on like Al Lombardo’s yellow coupe and his Willys that Steve almost got killed in at the valley. We helped out Jim Norman of Waterbury with with the ex Scott Shafiroff Camaro . I also helped Brian Bennett restore the Gene Snow Jake Johnson driven 71 Dodge Charger funnycar Rambunctious. I used to own Tony Mone’s “Quickshot” Pro stock Camaro which was a project I never finished, I sold it to a guy in Bethel Ct. who chopped it all up. I live in Florida now. So that’s enough about me . So Hello everybody! 🙂 Charlie
