Wallingford, CT

Wife: Sherry - married for 30 wonderful, glorious years

Children: Heather - 27 yrs old, married to SSG Chris Prokup, who is currently serving his second tour overseas. She has an Australian Shepard named Rotor Blade & a papillon named Pazzo. Kelly - 24 yrs old, a 5th grade teacher at Moses Y Beach Elementary School and is currently finishing up her Masters degree. Megan - 22 yrs old, part of the first generation of Congenital Heart Defect survivors. She is currently learning to drive while taking care of her mini dachshund, Fiona.

I have always been into cars - from learning how to drive on a 1962 Buick LeSabre, with a 410 Wildcat engine - to a 1964 Malibu - to a 1964 Chevelle SS - to my current car, a 1937 LaSalle. If it goes fast and straight, fast with left turns, or just fun to drive...I like it. Sherry and I got married in 1975 and have 3 daughters. Heather, our oldest, shares the same interest in cars. She went to her senior prom in Steve's '34 Sedan, and then used his '56 & '57 Chevy's as wedding limos.

I have worked at Tilcon, a construction company, for 32 years. I currently run a front end loader, and am in charge of the sand pit area used for the Swap Meet parking, where I earned the nickname, "Sand Pit John".

I enjoy working on my "Big Toy" and trying to decide on the next project car. With the wide variety of rides that C.S.R.A. members have, this choice may take awhile.
