Brian Hit a Giant Car Show in Kingston today…Had his GTO on display.Home runs all around …plenty of Dover Guys-Great Car club connections And Get This….He thinks he’s FOUND THE ORIGINAL Christmas TREE ! -Really ! …he’s heading out to see it tomorrow.
More day by day the old tree is said to be in my area at a old shop also some new stuff coming to the forum 1975-76 i am waiting on a call to see bike drag photo’s from 75. Dover shirts going like hot cakes at weekend car shows too !! Brian M
Brian really on the move lately…today he was at Jungle Georges ! Hawthorne Auto parts. I’ll let him fill ya in.
Brian called me the other day, said he found some pics of the Datsun truck I ran in P/Stock. Ran the truck 19 times, won 18 trophies. Snapped off the shifter the 4th time I raced it. I had a lot of fun with that truck. Took it to the 73 Summer Nationals, and they would not let me run it. Said there was no such truck in the books, only a B-210 car. I could have smoked them, that thing would run almost a full second under the record at that time. Oh well. ………Mikey 😆
Today was cool… hung with George Olszewski of ”Hawthorne” Auto Parts. At same location over 40 years .He had many cars run out of his place and personal cars. George’s pictures coming soon to the site.He was there right up to the last day, he said he even sold his car when Dover closed.He didn’t want to run anywhere else.They have a lot of speed parts, more than I have seen in a long time .I’m going back soon .

Brian Infiltrated the Track again today and did “recon” in Wingdale.They All know him Now!.He made some moves on 50th contats and even got into the American Legion.Of Course had to say hi to Lisa at the Post Office and ended up selling Dover stuff all over ! .He can give you the details…. Brian -tell them about the Other Ariel shots we’re getting .

I had lunch at my favorite pizza place ”Cousins”, Bam!- sold him a Dover poster for thier wall …they wanted thier peace of history. Then over to Murphy’s speed shop with my new Black Arrow pictures ,with Fred in them -he loved those. The track property was just mowed and looks good …the survey will be next. Brian M.

Brain just called from Shelton,Connecticut!!
He has a search warrant for a house there with DDS goods!!!!
The Valley isnt a safe haven from Brian !!!
Oh, Shelton ,home of the Wiffle Ball http://www.wiffle.com/,maybe he’ll get some leads on Blakes gold 55 gasser ????
I like the sound of that. That sure would be a fun car to restore back to the way it was during the Dover days.
Brians updated cell call at 12:34 ,the Shelton,Ct. search and seizure went well.DDS goods are loaded and headed back to Brians DDS Museum in Kingston, N.Y.!! I didnt get the mans name but he raced an Olds and others at DDS from the 60’s into the 70’s!!Way ta go Brian !!Brian was short on time so heading straight back to N.Y. We will hookup next week and recon Wingdale for the beer pizza gig and start to survey the old DDS site for the 50th!!
Brian is On The Move…nothings safe from our DDS historian. Museum is going to need another room!
