Keith, My very best congratulations to you on your retirement. Your retirement bash looked great. Liked the cake. I remember so clearly when I said good bye, the guys presented me with my helmut. It definitely was a moment. Even as a "Vollie", the gang were close. You did amazing things with the truck. I always highlighted your rig when talking to others about restorations. You did good Keith.

Here is the invitation my wife and her friend made for my retirement party. The old picture was taken in spring of 1983.

Hello Gentlemen, I finally got the book on my truck printed! It’s been done for over 4 years and I couldn’t wait any longer. I had to use a different printing company then I had anticipated due to costs. I had planned to print around 250 copies which would have cost me 6-7 thousand. This option would have kept the price down a little. I just don’t have the funds to do that right now. Instead I used Blurb, which is a print-on-demand book printing company. They are charging me $39 a copy and that’s with me making no money. I am OK with that. Blurb often runs 25-30% off coupons frequently or if you purchase 50 or more copies then they take 25% off the lot. It’s a good quality book which is hardcover, full color and comprised of 120 pages. Best of all, I designated a few pages to the comments made by my FTE brothers who supported my project/thread. So, 25% off puts the book at $29.25 plus shipping $3.99 I will be making the book available on their website so everyone can order directly from them. If you would like an autographed or inscribed copy, then I can order bulk and it will cost a few bucks more because it will be shipped to me first and then to you. If you want to wait out until the 30% discount is advertised, then it will be a few bucks cheaper. Below is the list of people that said they were interested in obtaining a copy. I know it’s been a few years and some people may not be interested anymore or are not active on the site as I have been the past year. I just want to thank everyone for their support over the past few years. Thanks again Keith dennisb56Wmrdalydvm 1948F1dude
