    SWDP 8th annual BBQ 8-22-15

    Folks ! ! First, I want to COMMEND You all for carrying on with Our 8th annual event ! ! You all know that It is the PASSION of Us ALL, not just one or two of Us, that makes this event happen every Year. I will still make every effort to be there but in the final few months of My railroading career I had the opportunity of a lifetime to learn how to operate a locomotive by the new remote control system. Most railroad yards over the past 10 years or so have changed over to this form of operation. The typical locomotive engineer that has been operating locomotives in switching yards all over the country have been removed and a remote control "box" worn on the chest of the switchmen has been adapted. A class opened up in Winslow Arizona and I was accepted to learn the system. Mark is also in Winslow and in the off time We have been able to explore this wonderful part of the country. This is important with all that We both have been having to learn. We both know that all of You will miss Us this year but We also know that work and family come before hobbies. We have been in contact with many of You and have heard that You will be doing Your best to still attend the BarB-Que. Make it the best You can ! ! This is YOUR yearly event ! ! Thank You and the best to You all ! ! Mark and I will be there in spirit ! ! Mike

    Generally the Wigwam has been the "after party" location due to a few of Us staying there. I am doubtful if that will be happening this year. I DO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE WIGWAM FOR NOT ONLY THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME BUT SECURITY IN FONTANA. MIKE

    Hi Guys. There is IMPORTANT information to tell You. This year is going to be VERY different........................ Mark and I will not be attending. Rest assured We WILL be there next year. Both of Our jobs have taken Us away from all truck activities this year. PLEASE ! ! ! PLEASE ! ! ! We NEED all of You to pitch in and make this years event happen ! ! Hopefully Guy has reserved the gazebo, I have NOT. If that location is not available, I would like all of You to pick a spot to get together on SUNDAY August 23nd. You all know what to do and bring. I hope You can make it still happen. I will find out if Guy has made presentation plaques and let You know everything I hear. I have been told that Tony, Danny, Austin and Darren will try to make the Bar-B-Que happen. Hopefully Lawrence, Chrisanto, Rucky, Robert, Gene and Charlie can get it to happen. More details as I get them. Please either PM Me or email Me with suggestions. THANKS

    SWDP saves the Lepricaun (sort of)

    I wanted to add that I think the owner that turned it over kept the airbrushed glovebox door. The yard said it wasn't on the truck when they picked it up. When I first met Him (top 2 pics) He told Me that He had Joe's club jacket and all of the dash plaques. Sadly, those are gone too.

    SWDP saves the Lepricaun (sort of)

    This Ford courior was owned by a guy named Joe from the San Bernardino,CA. area. It survived all of this time intact and was actually driven by a second owner up until about 5 years ago, where it begin to just sit and get moved a few times. I tried MANY times to purchase it but the owner was unwilling to sell. Two months ago it disappeared again. After about 3 weeks I walked up to the door and again inquired about it. To My dismay it had been handed over to the local salvage yard ! ! After all of this trying ! ! ! It was released last week in the yard, with NO WAY to purchase the complete truck. It was very dismaying that the owner just turned it over, not even taking one cent for it, but that was His perogitave. Monday morning I was there when the gate opened and within 3 hours had purchased the fender flares, sunvisor, bumperettes, side mirrors, wheels and tires with all lugnuts and chromed fan shroud. Thursday Mark, Tony and I got the GT Spoiler camper shell and steering wheel. All that is left is a chromed valve cover, header and the complete crushed velvet interior and seat (which I might go back and get). So there it is................. Another significant show truck from the past heads to the grave. We have done all that We can do. I get real moody about such fine examples of mini truck history fading and needlessly heading to the crusher after surviving for so long. All that will be left of the Lepricaun will be some pictures. :crying: THAT RABBIT'S FOOT DIDN'T WORK VERY WELL AFTER ALL ! ! ! !
