You really hooked me man! I comin’ back for the event. Made contact with Ray Hinkley and we are getting together to make the trip to Island Dragway on Sunday. This really is gonna be fun!
Received the ODF packet the other day. What a great deal. I love the t-shirt and the enclosed items. Gonna frame the event poster.
Hope we get a chance to talk a bit on Sunday. I want to share a short story about the Tiny Tim Volvo and my life as an adult (?).You are doing great work with the site making a place for us geezers to relive a whole bunch of great memories. Can you believe we are over 60? I never thought we would make it to 40!

Les M. JUST SENT THIS:
While just browsing the web site, I came across the Woodstock / Dover posts…… The Prock & Howell coupe, which later on became the , Ellison/MaGarvey car, now resides in Westchester County, NY…
My friend and fellow Westchester Street Rod Association member, Walter Hasselman purchased the car…..
He hopes to bring the car to Island Dragway for the Race.
The car has been semi-restored at Bobby Lagana’s shop in Eastchester… Big Al’s Toy Box in Gaylordsville, CT freshened the motor…..But the chassis has not been upgraded to meet today’s safety standards….. Bottom line, can’t race the car….
Just in From “Mr.J’ …famous New Jersey Airbrush Lettering master (Did Jungle Jim Funny cars) :
Dino, hope to be there on the 7th. I’ll bring Gerdes & any of the “Circus” survivors I can find, “J”
