    Dino, Competion Plus was on Yonkers Ave a couple of blocks from Yonkers Raceway.It was a pretty big set up. Pete I think his last name was Di Consenzo worked there great guy he ran a 66′ 396 Chevelle he later worked at the Carbuerator Place.A friend of mine Nickey Dit Dot (yes that we called him) of Nickey’s Towing had them work on his box Nova for awhile then he converted to a Billy Casey Boy. *note as per Don Kauer the word boy should be eliminated …….

    Dino,I grew up in The Bronx N.Y. in the 1950’s.Do Wop ? The guys used to sing it in the hallways.My father was an Arthur Ave Guy… so I grew up on the King of N.Y. Do Wop:Dion DiMucci. For all us old street racers out there (Don Kauer included) there is a song by Dion called “The King of the N.Y. Streets” that can apply to all of us….
