    Got from reliable source that Moroso isn’t doing to good and operating on 1/3 the work force after four rounds off lay-offs. Some that were there for over 20 years gone .Only producing 1/3 the product they used to .Banks seem to maybe be calling the shots . Anybody up there have anything to add to this ?

    I’ll try to get a feel for what’s going on. I have long-standing friendships with people who are both near and at the top, and plan to go there either before or after Englishtown.

    Thats our Tomatoehead….,loyal as they come…Hey…already PM’d Rick And Some times ya gotta hear all sides of the story. Bein’ down here….I only know what guys tell me & assume the info is correct. If it sounds like a “rumor” …lets treat it like one…We’re all new to this Forum game and stuff like this is a good lesson. My line about “Buying Junk from China “and repeating things before checking them out. which I try to do …was out of line and Apoligize to Rick for that….Won’t be the first time I screwed up…see the post, of how I got Fired from Dover! Old Big Mouth inserting foot again.

    I am sure that Dick would be very proud of the job that Rick is doing. Dick was very receptive to any of the old Dover guys that would contact him. He gave me a tour of his Guilford facilities once and gave me a copy of “Money” magazine which had his picture on the cover. I have to go into my pile of stuff and dig that out.

    i worked for dick in the late 60,s in the greenwich ct. store. if dick sold it, you needed to have it. he didn,t sell junk and i,m sure his son is the same way. they didn,t get where they are selling junk. dick was a great guy i loved working for him.

    Dino. Thanks for the reply. Apology accepted. Especially at this time, I think rumors like this can do more harm than the economy, and I tend to be a little protective of our company and products. When Randy is here, he will see that we are chugging along doing our thing. No need to delete the thread, I just wanted to make sure everyone heard it from me.

    Thanks guys! I truly appreciate the kind words, your support and business!

    I would like to come to the Island event, but until the date gets closer, I don’t know. It just depends on what’s happening. If I can I will bring my Dad’s car of course. I have attached a pic of what it looks like right now.

    Everything is good.

    Whew! Glad we all kissed and made up…didn’t want to get fired again. Won’t be the first time ,us Dover Guys had a problem in the “Pits”….cool thing was, we were back next week…and went on with racing. THAT CAR IS ABSOLUTLY OUT OF SIGHT ! …the retro details…wheels-tires are dead on. Going to try to “match” up an early shot of same car ar Dover. Unless you beat me to it. Rick….you will enjoy Randy’s visit….he’s quite an “interesting” character ! You know of course, Randy’s Drag Racer Magazine will do a feature on the event….courtesy of our In-House camera dept. (Bobby.S.) and the Race WILL be part of our BIG VIDEO documentary project. I could “montage ” actual footage of that car we have back then, with it running now . Video -Bob and assocites will have multiple units rolling…..need that vette in the mix!

    Hi Rick

    the vette is a KILLER, really good to hear that a
    local family/company is still in the running with the way
    things are now-a-days. I know that the racers in the area are supportive
    to you, Always see your items on our NETO cars
    and any of the other nostalgia racing groups in the area.
    I sure that any racer in any NHRA division
    especially Div. 1 or the Ihra circtut
    will be behind you 100+%.

    If you are in the area for any of the special
    Nostalgia events up here, you always have
    a HELLO waiting for you at the NETO tent. 😉

    KEEP 😀
    Bobby S.
