|The rondevue time is 9am Friday morning. We're set
with all the parts and supplies stacked and ready to go! It was like clock
work and 9am sharp we could see the tree tops moving as this giant rounds
the bend. Look out! It's Bob Hallock in his big shiney red and black beauty
of a semi,....he slowly saunters her into the space we have saved for him
with 4 cars, 3 tables, 2 neihbors and a friend(thought I heard x-mas music).
This was such a side show for the entire neihborhood. Everyone young and old
alike were out in their P.J's with cameras, posing infront of the car. There
we are in our tiny suburban street with the Dragster at the edge of the
grass ready to load at 9am on a school day(we live next door to a high
school, new drivers, permits, etc. You know the nightmare!). As planned, we
all take our positions! (Drum roll please) Frank calls out, OK! YOU CAN LET
THE DOOR DOWN BOB!. . . GREAT! NOW. .
.LET..IT..DOWN..THE...REST...OF...THE...WAY! (clears throat). . . .OK! BOB!
. . . .LET HER DOWN!. . . . BOB? . . . . .BOB?
