Planning on visiting Doc soon …will take my camera & video to do Live remote -interview and history for Big Video Project.
Check out that photo! Doc about to make a run, Helen standing right by the car, Doc with the window out of it and his arm on the sill, and Al holding Robbie! Those were the days!
About the photo…… I Found it in the Terry O’Shea Galleries…THIS is why we feel by Rescuing the Terry O’Shea photo Collection (In the Big ODF gallery) …..WE REALLY have saved & can Share “The Dover Expeariance”….Terry’s Candid Photo record Shows “how it was”. Most “Track Photographers” just plant themselves at an angle to the starting line, and shoot “launch Photos’ …..Not so withTerry, he was all over, capturing golden moments for Us ….he really was a Talent. Now consider the “Doc” opening this up , not having seen it ,in all this time !…..Wow
lets think about this… were else does the starter babysit while your making a pass ,,, I can’t think of any 😛 😛 😛
Al was the greatest!
I know I’ve mentioned it here before, and I don’t know how many other folks let him do this, but Dad let Al make a pass with the max wedge “Storm King’ one Sunday after the races.
He came back with his eyes as big as saucers; babbling about ” all I did was push buttons!” It was the fastest thing he’d ever been in. He was such a good guy.
AS mentioned back in Nov. here…I’m getting ready to make “A DOCTORS APPOINTMENT” …he’s up the road from me and Papa smurf And I are heading there soon for the long awaited Video interview.
Bill and I would love to visit doc and Helen, I know my Mom would too.
Dino, please make sure you mention us to them and send our love.
I sure will…We’ll have on Video …writing up a Question List now…Got any Tid-bits Guys ?…you want me to ask ? Reply here .
