Thank you Jim.

We both lived in Yonkers at the same time but didn't know each other. We both did know Anthony "Tinny" Vistano who ran a 1940 Chevy Gas Coupe at Dover. I wish I could find a picture of it. Tinny and my brother doubledated with their future wives at the Roosevelt Highschool senior prom and they both live in the Denver area now.

Thanx... for the good information on Richard's pictures. People here on this board are interested.

Maybe... I didn't know about it. He is a pilot now and flys freight planes. Maybe for Kalitta. but I don't know that.

towed the MODIFERS b/d to R.I. with my 58 chevy impala 283 racer brown 36r, roller cam 4 deuce carbs, stock mufflers, headers were capped.GOT a ticket for too loud pulling out off toll booth on I 95. the sound he heard thru the 365 louvers in the hood, was the 4 rochchesters sucking down some of chets, shell gas. got to the track early,the seagulls were dropping clams from 100 ft. up on the concrete to break them open. first time with 4:56 gear in rail, pulled a 5 ft high wheelie off the line still had the small HEMMI in the rail. i think we ran low 11,s TIM hallock
