    Thank God we don’t drink like that any more . I remember Seymour would go for lunch at sam’s every sunday I was afraid to let him pack our parachute found that one out the hard way . Right off the end of the track and into the dirt. When I got out of the car the chute fell out of the pack and onto the ground.

    Seymour realy never had much interest in driving. He tried it one time and said thats it you drive .he was a good partner and a good friend still IS. He just got tired of it and just wanted to do some other things. WE sure had alot of fun.

    I remember everyone calling Billy “Speed” at his Getty station on McLean Ave in Yonkers. When was that, early 70’s Bill? You kept wishing you were cool enough to race a Ford! I remember it well. 😆
