This is a tribute to a friend who passed away February15th 2010!!Cliffy lived all his life in Oakville,Ct.!
Cliffy was one of those guys that could have been your brother,cousin,uncle,friend!!He was the kid who lived next door!!
He was the guy with a car he wanted to race and a beer he wanted to drink!!
Cliffy ran Dover,Ct., Raceway Park(aka)Englishtown andThe Valley with his beloved Pontiac and boy did he win!!!!As with a lot of the guys that raced at Dover Drag Strip he didnt have a trailer,tow bar, name on the car or sponsor!!He raced what he drove to school and work!!!
Cliffy rest in peace and this Buds for you!!!
Well said V………RIP Cliffy……….You will never be forgotten by your
fellow race buds !………YES, This BUD is for you !!
R.I.P. Cliffy. I didn’t know you, but I like your style. We also have something in common. You passed away on my 60th birthday, and that makes us “buds”. …………..Mikey 😆
Even though I never knew Cliffy,the way you described him V Bob,and seeing the photos,he seemed like a friend ‘forever’,and was sadly taken too young,and a great loss to all of his friends and family.May he rest in peace.
Hey V…………I never had the pleasure of knowing him but from what you have posted, I wish I did!!! RIP….. No more Bud for me but this BONE is for you 🙁 …………..Don……..
I just wanted to add,talk about a successful “SLEEPER”,his Pontiac (along with his driving skills) sure must have opened a few ‘eyes’ in it’s time! I’m sure Brian M. would have admired him alot,if he were around back then to watch him race!
Don, You crack me up !!! 🙂
OH YEAH NOW THATS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT Cliff your the man ! Fast Pontiac’s and putting them away at Dover. Well gotta go this 12 pack is in your Honor!!!! Brian
