09/22/06 John McCaughey The pic of the 3 cars....I think, but I won't swear on it...that the 125 is Earl Elzer from Staten Island....Whitey Kidd may have been involved in it also, maybe when he was 1st involved. I'm not sure, but I think it is....
09/27/06 Walter Onora The 125 was driven first by Whitey Kidd, Sr and then Earl Elzer. Both Whitey and Earl co-owned this particular car. I remember this particular car was housed at a Mobil station on Staten Island.
02/20/07 Dale Puff Yes, that #78 was (me) driving (in this photo). The #78 was owned by Pat Rissi and myself.  We did not have money but we had a lot fun.  The second year, I changed the body to a Falcon.  The one Pat Rissi had on his car.    I sold the car to Andy Belmont and he changed the body to a Vega.    Pat used the Falcon on his car.  I never had the chance to thank Frank Cervino for all the help he gave me.

09/14/08 Frank Cervino I worked with Pat Rissi and Dale on the #78. We had great fun. The good old days.
