Just talked with TV TOMMY IVO via the e-mails ! He’s so ‘Stoked’ seeing his car in the Teaser …he wants a copy …No problem …sent it out today -just His car clip .Tom will be in our Big Video as a telephone interview .
After telling him we sent him a “Courtesy “Clip DVD and asking him about Running at Dover.. Details …TV TOMMY SENT BACK THIS ! …..
“Yes, well as you figured out, I don’t chat a bunch on line. I just didn’t want anyone to think I was “snobbish” when I didn’t participate with them.
Yes, I was at Dover at least 2 times and I’d like to say 3 or 4 times. But that was a long way back. The first time, I’m fairly certain I was making single runs, or at least on racing the local guy. But, Preuhomme and I wasn’t the “first” time. Now don’t bet the house on this, because with me now days — The lights are on but nobody’s home, when it comes to my memory at times!!! <grin>
Thanks in advance for the clip. I just always try to collect those things for my own amusement and as a keepsake.”
V-Bob.. is there anywhere,you haven’t been???!!!
V Bob…..you keep some pretty good company.
TV TOMMY IVO WROTE BACK THIS ! :
I got your DVD and want to thank you very much for it. Since we would go to a track on the weekend and then leave immediately for the next one. I was never around to collect any pictures from the event, let alone any type of filming that was done. So you can imagine how rare it is from me to find any of these types of things, especially film.
(DVD) Plus racing my old nemesis Prudhomme.
So it really means a lot for me to come across something like this at this stage of my life, where fond memories mean so much. It really comes to welcome hands. Therefore, once again, I thank you, thank you, thank you for you generous efforts in getting a copy of this to me.
Your too, too kind to me!!!
TV Tommy Ivo”
Jeesh! he’s like an expectant father…OK…Ok…Friday well do one…just got this new blown & injected computer about figured out .
This shows the Aug.25 Match race That was supposed to be Schumacher Vs. Billy Meyer. Meyer was replaced by Wild Willy and Terenzio Ran Willy in the final when Don Broke. Anthony ?…Who Won ?
thats not how I rember it, we ran shoe in the last race and i told ant to shut it off so shoe could win, cuz if he didn’t there was no way he would win record to record, and i didn’t want to make him look bad, “ant would have just smoked his ass” :DI’m pretty sure that we ran willy another time when fitsgerald broke. Ant? hes in texas today.
Ok …mixed up there …Willy Broke.
Anthony DID post this way back :
“Hey that’s my Terenzio Bros BB/A doing the burn out and making a run.And it’s problably the same day i ran Don Schumacker in a match race when Wild Willy could not return for the final and they gave me 300$ to run him.”
….So the Altered WAS faster Huh…? Had to make a show ,so the “star” looked good…Most of these match Races were “rigged” anyway “best 2 out of 3” Right !…always had a “final run ” to see who’s “Best”…. And some of the early shut-off times were phoney …sorry Fans. What kind of times that day?
Don’t know the #’s that day, But The Italian Way BB/A set the record one month after we built it and I reset it 5 times after that in a 4 year period, Ant set the last one@ 8.05 and he ran a best of 7.86 183.54 at the world finales, quicker and almost as fast as the Let It Fly AA/A, 186.97 and this was on Getty high test, we were to cheap to buy race gas, hehehe.
