    Enclosed trailer needed.. buy, rent ?

    Lou (Sr) and I are going to miss Burley, I can’t get that much time off and it’s a bit too far. Our next race is Long Beach if they can pull it off. We'll also be at the last 3 races for the year. If you don’t mind, let us know when you will be testing. I know Lou Sr. will enjoy.

    My father-in-law will be 92 this June and I spend a lot of time with him motor-homing. He still drives his 40-footer while I enjoy the ride (he drove big rigs for 30+ years). No open containers but you can never tell what he is going to say! The filters are gone. Times are great.

    Your first Boat ?

    Our first boat was a 1977 Caribbean with a Jacuzzi Jet and a 460 Ford. I had to work and my wife went to the LA Boat Show with her brother. She liked the boat and thought it was safe for our two sons, who were 6 and 4 years old. The boat cost $7,000 out the door. We owned a VW bug and a...

    I remember that song being played at a Sadie Hawkins dance at St. Pius X High School in Downey, CA. in 1965 when I was in the 9th grade. The things one remembers.
