Yes indeed those were the days ! I can't recall too many names but the cars sure stayed with me.. I will try and take a few pics but I'm not a picture taker...
I believe these pics were early 60s....The car on the right has been fully restored.

Don't recall the coupe but that orange sedan delivery in the background looks like Carl Carpenter's(Fiberglass Engineering out of Cochituate)40 with the blown Olds.Remember that car well because he bought it from a friend of mine(Ken Frederick who built the Iced T).Think it was a trade deal that included a couple of fiberglass T bodies.Ken used it to tow his B/R that Floyd Masters eventually got by trading his Latham blown 339" Chevy that was in his 60 Corvette to Ken which powered the Iced T. As an aside when Ken bought that delivery it only had 3,000 miles on it!Had been in storage since 1943!

Wish I could come out there this weekend but I have several pinstripers converging on my shop for an impromptu panel jam and to do up my friend Shane's daughter's truck.

My friend Dick Lindkvist,who just got back from his nearly 10,000 mile trip around the USA in his 33 Ford coupe will likely be there.He lives in Auburn.If you see him tell him I said hello and hopefully will be at the All Timer's bash in August with the Safari.

I've known Dick since the late 50's;we used to do a bit of street racing back then in Massachusetts.He has several cars including a yellow T with graphics,a white Deuce roadster with flames and a couple of bikes;one of which Kelsey Martin and I painted for him in 1970.He also has an old helmet of mine I did back in the early 60's.Good people.

Just got off the phone with one of the club members and I guess Dick is going to meet up with us...
Seems like a lot of interest for this reunion but you know how that goes....
