    I will always remember you Willie. Those were great times in LA in the '60's.
    Rest in peace my friend.

    Found this video while looking for footage. Really cool to hear Big Willy telling a little of his story




     
  8. Big Willies COLORS should be hung in the Petersen for all time.....this is a major part of our automotive history in the U.S.A.

    I was parts hunting today at U Pick in Sun Valley and came across Big Willies old van. Was shocked to see it here.

    What will become of his 73/74 Charger? Yeah It was rough looking and kinda goofy but cool in a "Mad Max" way.
