COMING SOON – DEARBORN and NYC REDUX – STAY TUNED

In 1957 I was a star of GIANT STEP, a TV Quiz program hosted by Bert Parks.  One of my prizes was a trip to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan with my Dad.  Soon to be re-explored.

A younger me and my Dad in the Museum (I could touch anything)

The letter which sent me the picture above. I cannot find the professional picture of me driving Ford’s 999 Racer, but I have a Polaroid. Note what they thought of me. (click to enlarge)

The Newsletter announcing my upcoming visit

Dearborn-3

And, the detail.  Note the “z” by mistake, and Larry should be Bert

Dearborn-4

A snap of me on TV in 1957

Dearborn-5

And, following my visit with Julie and grandchildren to Grand Central Station last month, I cannot wait to get back to explore the terminal and the city.  Here I am on a visit a few years ago, and my interview on the upper level for the evening news (TV studios were in GCT).  You know I am not shy, and love an audience, even if unseen

Dearborn-7

Above is the note I typed at that time and affixed to the back of the photo.

So…..stayed tuned for great adventures to come in 2015.

    Hey David,
    Great to hear from you. Been too long since I have crossed the hill, but once I get my visa for West West renewed, I will return.
    Come on now, you were too little to remember me, really? But then again, I know your memory. Gee, did I impress you even then?
    Catch you soon, say hi to Butch for me, RAY

    Your writing skills and investigative reporting goes way back. So glad you’re still tapping the keys!
