Don,I am new to this internet thing. alot of names coming up here and there yours included that this old Italian rembers. I ran out of the “THE GREAT BILL CASEY’S shop with a 68′ 427 L-88 Chevelle (COURTESY OF JERRY ROBERTS) and was good friends with Joe Arrangio (offical Auto Parts). Freddie is one hellva guy ,Bill Casey ….. I think I heard the same story about him from Frank Madonia (ha! ha! Billy) but he still built the fastest cars in Yonkers,N.Y

FRED’S Speed Shop -Just lettered on the Super Pumpkin VII “Tribute Car” …How cool IS THAT after all these years?
I can’t thank Fred enough for all the help he gave me through the years. Last year Fred had jackets made up just like the ones he had back in the 60’s. I wore mine all weekend at the Adarondack Nationals in Lake George NY, I couldn’t beleve how many people came up to me to talk about Freds Speed Shop and Dover Drag Strip. Last summer while packing up all my old parts in house in Dobbs Ferry to move to LG I found a Holley float bowl with the TRICK CARBS sticker and one of Freds Speed Shop business cards. I gave them to Fred and he was very happy as he had not saved any of the TRICK CARB stickers. I am going to post some pictures of Freds Cars that I scanned for him some years back. Heres a picture of the jackets
