      Hey, Drake! Bill told me the other night you guys we in contact, I’m glad to hear it; he always speaks fondly of you. You were sure one of the good guys to us!
      Yes, I understand the big Ford valve covers, miss those old things too. We pretty much always got along with the Ford guys, win lose or break it was always a hand shake and we’ll get you next week sort of thing. Not so with other brands the way we saw it. Ed Prout; Ford altered, later junk yard dog pro stocker, Harvey Wilson, Billy Kolb, YOU, some of the best folks ever.
      So I’m putting together a ’66 stretched nose Dart, why don’t you put together a stretched nose ’66 ‘Stang and we’ll have at it? Old school, no juice, 500 cubes max, 2600#, 12 inch tires, all else fair game.

          Might be “A little more fun than the law would allow” as they used to say in Hazzard County!

          I know what you mean about your Dad though; Drake. Dad passed away in 2001 while my wife and I were in Bakersfield at the March meet, which was an almost lifelong dream of mine to attend. Even though he was not able to work with us and help with the cars his last few years, it was different without him just “being” there with us.
