I'm said to have to post this but my long time friend Bob Gerdes passed away early Monday morning. Gerdes was one of the best painters in the business and did cars for Jungle and hundreds of other drag cars that passed through his shop. I had a lot of good times with the dude and we talked on the phone weekly until his passing.

See ya in the movies....

Yes, I know some of you on this site hate when the older folks say "Good Old Days"
They were the "Good Old Days" They were the Days of our Lives!
Thanks Phil for another fantastic article.

Not to change the subject. Mike, I think I've ask you this before, can't remember.
(It happens when you get older...LOL well it's not that funny) Do you still have
train sets and do you have "American Flyer" on the dragster.

Yes Weisgerber is Glenn's last name, sorry to say that he's not doing too good right now and he's currently in an extended care facility. He is a gifted drummer and search "The Love Pirates" to hear some of his band's music.

He turned my vw bug into a drum set by tapping around the car for different sounds, it was amazing what he was able to do, he told me he had done some studio work with Gordon Lightfoot, he airbrushed a polished sharp 75 spray gun on the paint booth door at Carters, from five foot away you could not tell it was not a real gun, won a few bets on that one, thanks for the info on his band, I will send my prayers for him and his family
