Back in the mid
60's, Andy, Bill, and Bob, attended Annandale High School in
Northern Virginia. Later we attended Northern Virginia Community
College. Then we kind of went our separate ways after a couple of
years but kept in touch. I tried to keep mental notes of our
activities as we went through life; high school, college, careers,
marriage, divorce, illnesses, kids' births, and family member's
deaths. Some of the things we did are detailed here; some are not
and should be forgotten as in anyone's life, including mine. These
WebPages were written from this perspective.
If you are not a hotrodder, classic car, or muscle car enthusiast
that have not built your own (verses Daddy buying), do not read any
further. Chances are you will not understand and waste your time.
You may get the wrong impression and incorrectly think this is all
about trying to be macho. Go read something that you can relate to,
like the Wall Street Journal or Vogue or whatever. When I developed
these WebPages, the audience I had in mind were the old street
hotrodders, muscle car, and drag strip car owners who built their
cars in the 60s and 70s and not someone who has not had similar
experiences or can not relate to these experiences. The best way I
can describe the three of us is "old school" and we learned from
some of the best: Sherman who had the "E" Altered World Record and
was recently inducted into the
2005 Hall of Fame. Another person of importance was Pete
Hall who had been Sox and Martin's mechanics/machinists. In addition
Pete had the B Stock Automatic World Record,
Sherman said next time I am in Roanoke he would provide pictures of
his race cars for our WEB site!!! Got to get down there soon -
maybe I'll just retire and move down there ...
As for us mere mortals today, Andy and Richard are scientists (State Police
Forensic Scientists) and are still going after the bad guys. They are keeping
chaos in check.
As scientists they have developed new and improved finger print and fire arm
identification techniques that other local, State and national law enforcement
agencies have used. Andy has taught at the Police Academy and was even in a
TV special about forensics. Heaven help us should "they" retire!!! Maybe they
shouldn't be allowed ... :) As for me, I have been a computer scientist and
seeveral kinds of Earth scientists. Matter of fact, Dan is also Earth Scientist
with a computer background and George is an enigneer and a world renoun remote
sensing/image processing algorithm researcher. Randy is a land baron managing
his assets, an entrepreneur/businessman,
and builder/modifier of cars, trucks and "tractors" - when he has the time. My
daughter Sarah has had all kinds of jobs and has had several American Sport
Coupes. And as for Bill,
he is off saving the world through his "philanthropic" activities ... :) So this
is who we are ...
We make heavy use of the Browser's "Back" button so when ever you
link to another page remember to use tbe back button to continue -
should you have not had enough ... These pages are the private

used to listen to when we tooled around in our Nomads ...long long time ago ... We now
