Message: Hey Cougs, went to HAN last year, had a ball. Went with a friend of mine in his 47 Chevy Sedan Delivery, big blower motor, no hood, chopped, lowered, flames, got a lot of hoots and hollers every time he revved it up with the open headers. Won't make it this year, maybe next year. See everybody 8/20 (Ctown Cruise Night). Also Signal Hill show Sunday 8/7. Later Don
Hey Don, See you at Fosters, man.

On a side-note, if anyone is looking for either a 1964 or 1965 El Molino, I have one of each available.
Thank you Myrna. Norval buddy, you were a good friend, Rest In Peace.

It has probably been a year or so since I saw it, so it will probably come around again, or they sell copies of all their programs on line. One of my favorite shows.

Message: Hey Gary, I thought that was quite a stretch on the 24 ft thingy. But I too type that way and spell quite the same. But I do remember storm surf would come in, I didn't ride a board by the way, it would be 8-10 ft and be pounders and we would go out and try and body surf that stuff. You end up eating alot of sand. But if you caught the wave, as in all surfing of any kind, it was a righteous, bitchin, experience. But the strawberries took a heck of a time to heal. MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU. Jake N Jude

Some reports indicated that Nixon had considered a Nuclear attack as a response.

Is that right? Why do they have to have so many different measures of time??

I remember saying to him that he would not remember this event but he will be able to tell his kids he watched the 1st man walk on the moon. Great moment. I wonder if my grandkids will ever see anything as extraordinary as that?
