More From Mark…”Hey Dino,! Dad went by Pee-Wee from Stamford, started out as Perfection speed shop, then in 1972 turned into a regular machine shop, H&L Tool, 581 Hope st, below Deluca industrial supply. They use to bring me down to Moroso’s (Dick’s) storefront on post rd in Greenwich, sit on the counter. at around 1-3yrs. old. Hank was my uncle. Dad use to work on Jeff Jerus Hemi cars, (sox/martin) Good friends with the Terenzio’s, Mark Dean, who later bought the Chevamoco Falcon and returned it to tunnel port ford. Going to leave the Anglia in flat black for now until we get it sorted out, just want to put my shop name on it. (RPM) than later Plum carzy purple like my Vega was, grape-ape character on the side, all 1970’s style bass-boat. metallic. My Dad told me about the first time he raced at Dover in like 1965 with his mostly stock 55 chevy, it had no front bumper so they put him in C/GAS!! says he got his doors blown off, he was only running high 14’s against 11 sec. Willys! Wish I lived those days, but I was not born until 72′ Parents use to take us up route 22 to Dykemans for pumpkins, showing us where Dover was, stop for lunch back at the Red Rooster.”
