Re: Needle in a hay stack...

Crashed at Hill Top is my recollection. Went off DSL into the tire wall.

1970's Slides Available

An acquaintance gifted me with a box of slides, pictures he took at Waterford in the 1970's. I have no way to use these; they are free to someone who can digitize them for possible use this anniversary year.

Re: Clift Corvette Asked and Answered

As I remarked to Joel on his face book page, Bob Clift couldn't have been a fool. I have to think he would have been satisfied that it was his old car - the one I turned up as having been restored. I think the E-bay listing is not Clift's old car. I don't know if the whole Bob Clift Corvette story h...

Re: Thoughts, Hearts, Prayers

Since I brought it up: My son in law called me late Monday night from their house; it was untouched, not even the garbage cans moved. The house behind them was crushed by a large fallen tree. There was, apparently, no flooding in south St. Pete.

Thoughts, Hearts, Prayers

In May and June we spent 5 weeks moving our daughter and son in law into their first house in south St. Petersburg. Late Sunday and early Monday it will be in the way of the strength of the hurricane. Many of us have friends and family and racing family in the way in Florida. Our thoughts, hearts an...

E.J. Faasen Dies at 91

My son called me to draw my attention to the M-Live obituary. He leaves his wife of 67 years, 9 children, 27 grand children, 31 great grand children and 4 great great grandchildren. After two interviews, he invited my wife, to whom he took a shine, upstairs over the office to see his most prized pos...

HR 350 Recognizing Protection of Motorsports

Reported on the Frank Beckmann show in an interview with an official of SEMA. The law would insure the EPA could never go after people converting street cars to racing cars.

Re: putting her to bed

Not a race car, but...I keep my Miata in the garage attached to my house, where it seldom gets down to freezing. I start it once a week, move it around in the driveway and run it up and down the street when it is reasonably clear. Seems to be doing OK.

Clift Corvette Asked and Answered

My own research has turned up an answer to what happened to this historic race car. The Spring 1997 The Corvette Restorer Magazine has a beautiful cover picture and story on the Clift Corvette. It was reported, at that time, to be in the possession of a man in or near Laughlin, Nevada who had restor...
