        Skip’s alive & well…Brian (our historian) has visited his house in Millerton,N.Y. Still has a an old coupe & Dover Stuff. He will probably make the Reunion. Was there Last year. Dover Trophies all over his house.

          I think this may be his dragster after being pop started and returning to the line…..not sure though. This pic is around ’71

            Not Skip’s… He Ran the “Soul Sauce” C/D, and The “T for Two” FTA Club Altered. Had the coolest push car at the track. This is Last single engine “Shottgun Express” Chevy big block AA/GD (pump gas)…Heading back to line to stage. Very rare and looking for photos of : Shott’s Twin engine car that followed this and crashed at Dover. Didn’t last too long. Will find my photo of that and post. Skip should be checking in soon …called his house and left a “Attention in the pits”message 😆

              Wild Bill, I’m still here, as reported in an earlier post. Hope you & Billy Masiello are still doing well. I’ll be at the Dover reunion, this may be our last one at the Marcus Dairy. Still wrenching, but no racecar.

                      THOUGHT THIS WOULD A COOL PLACE TO visit ‘The Early Skip Norths Rides” before “Mother”…. Remember ‘T FOR TWO” – “SOUL SAUCE” and of course all his Kool push cars…the merc and the caddy?
