Just got this e-mail:
I received your voice mail message and am saddened to report that I won’t be able to attend the Jan 10 reunion. I have to deal with a unexpected family situation in Florida that will make it impossible to make it back in time. It is a real bummer for me to miss this rare opportunity to see you and so many of my Dover friends. What can I say??…………..I will have to be satisfied with reading your report and Fourms on the Dover web site. Sure hope that there is another opportunity like this in the future.
Please say hello to all the racers who remember me, especially Drake.
Thanks for all that you do to keep the memory alive.
I’m planning to attend the reunion on the 10th with a half dozen friends, including Bobby Lagana Sr.<—–(COOL!)
I had this shirt printed up today ( At the Danbury Mall ) with photo’s of cars that I raced at Dover…. I think you were the announcer in 1965, when I had a successful year in the A/A class, with the 409″ powered red Bantam….
I’m hopeful that the “Shirt” will help others remember the car and the “Club”……
Our appearances have changed so much in last 30-40 years……Would be nice if “Name Tags” were provided on the 10th……
The ’41 Ford was my first car…..The ’39 Street Rod is what I drive today…
Untouochables Auto Club…….Yonkers,NY
