Vehicles? Dennis' family owned an air conditioning business when I first knew him; he would sometimes take company trucks on our outings...

Here in 1965, we were in C4, preparing for the Sunday night return to L.A.

L. to R.: Dennis, Scotsman (can't remember name), back of head dude, Bill Eicholtz, Russ McLean (standing supermodel), Chouinard, Becky (standing on ground).

Guido, I'm not sure that Lauria wrecked that many vehicles; I remember driving that West Ridge van up Hwy 99 to Yosemite and Don being all over me if I took it above 56 MPH; he was a pretty conservative driver, not like Kor or Rowell...

Here's one looking thru the chimney of Dennis' oil lamp on his table in C4, 1967.

Driving out to Jackson for the Pratt Memorial, from Bishop with Don, I casually asked him if he had ever been in a wreck?

Several hours and many miles later he was still describing some "incidents". My fav was the one where he is the baseball coach on the way to a game with some of his team and he wrecks his car.

cheers

I guess I just never heard those stories from Don. Doubtful he'll share them at the Taco stand...

For those who don't read French Polynesian or might not believe Guido or trust my memory, I just spoke with the "Supermodel" hisself (Dennis), and he confirmed that it is, in fact, McClinsky. Dennis took the Chouinard Equipment picture and some others that day as well...

Somebody get Dennis to post up the classic Chouinard's yard shizzle! Good to scan all your slides anyhow because they fade after a half century!

I don't think Dennis has his scanner yet. I'm not even sure that he has the "Chouinard's Yard" pix tho he probably does. But the photo person at Pataguchi should have them as well. And maybe even someone at Black Diamond.

But I agree, Steve, lots of folks who haven't seen them would love 'em. I guess if you had one or more of them, you'd have posted them already.

A bunch of the "Ascent of Chouinard's Yard" series of West Ridge ads are posted on the Mystery Boots thread.

I am a big fan of the totally homegrown funk industrial look at the GPIW back in the old days.

For god's sake Guido, post up those great and splendid Dennis images I did for you. Like the one with Dennis in the engine compartment of the old truck; ones around the making of the Shanachie; the one of Krisie and Dennis on the unfinished deck; the picnic table scene with everyone...ah kind of...enjoying it all...and it goes on. Dennis is a great man. Loved by so many and even today referred to as Von Hennek. This image above comes via ST and emails so i can put it up:

L to R: Hennek, Boche, McLean, Cohen
