    Hey Dino, Bikeair1 mentioned JJHS. Would that be John Jay High School in Wappinger Falls?? 😯 😯 That would really be WEIRD. We might know, or have known some of the same people!! 😮 😮 …………Mikey 😆

    Mikey …JJHS I went to is still in Cross River,N.Y -Katonah-Lewisboro School District.Took in Katonah,Goldens Bridge,Lewisboro,North Salem,South Salem & Vista …Right up to Ct line by Ridgefield. Old 60’s guys may remember the Cozy Cabin on Rt.35 in Cross River where the Greatest Rock band in Westchester,”The Continentals” played in the mid 60’s .

    Searching for Anything I lost, from back then, in Photos. What I posted is about all I can Find. I did run a old Light blue Dodge Pick-Up lettered on doors with ‘Dino The Weirdo’ But….No photos of it ..Looking for photos of Menglers Mouse T-bird (only one found in Kathy V.collection -not too good) and the Fair Auto Supply Altered I Did. STILL looking for photos of Hofmann’s ’55 Chevy.This might be a long shot…but back in Danbury…pre 1993, I remember “Lending” my photo album to ‘Somebody”…can’t remember who…By any stretch of the imagination…If anyone has it …I sure would like it back.

    Dino, I just looked at some pics of SP VII that Shimer posted. OUTSTANDING!!!! That is “old school Dino” with assistance from two others. If the lettering for my car is HALF that nice, I will probably have a coronary. Beautiful job by everyone involved.

    Thanks Don…you – me – most of the guys here …We span a long period of Race Car Trends…the New kids don’t have a clue…I didn’t even own an Air brush ’til the Neri Nova days…learned Gold Leaf after Dover closed. Then on to complete paint jobs. Still keep all the tricks in my ‘toolbox’ and looking to do real Nostalgia Lettering and paint on restored and clones of the “Good Ole Days” …new kids try to do it with vinyl…just don’t hack it.Just a few Brushman left…was glad to steer Pat to Howie up there.Car done right. Schlegel used him too..others still applying the paint with brush….Louie At Economy in Danbury and of course Walter Von Egity did the stuff on The Shimer fleet.

    Dino , you got that right! Howie lettered my car and it looks exactly like it did when it was first lettered back in 64. I wish I knew who did it then.

    Dino I often wondered what happened to Al Sanuta (letterer and pin striper back in the day)? Last said on the forum he moved to New England (fact ?).He did nice work,but no ways near your ‘artistic’ talents! I remember back in 1960 when I worked in a gas station-auto repair shop.He lettered the 50 Ford P/U service truck.When it was done it looked like a ‘circus’ add vehicle! Stripes and swirls all over the body! And yes,it drew attention around town! I caught up with him in 72.I had a 67 Mustang fastback.It was lime gold.The insert in the center of the side body panels I painted dark green.I instructed Al to pin stripe (in yellow) between the two colors,and NO ‘WILD’ swirls at the ends! Well, he listened about 75% of what I said.Oh,lesson I learned,stay ‘far’ away when he’s doing his thing! He’ll get that ‘point’ across to ya in a hurry!
