Told Dad about folks saying hello. He obviously says hello back! I am working a few ideas to get him out to the races, or atleast involved in racing? Thats where his thoughts are alot, he talks to folks everywhere and still keeps as close as he can, without being there. hehehe!!! Thanks everyone, BG

Thanks Bill for telling your Dad about us,asking about him.

Maybe you could talk Dad into getting on here and giving us a shout here at RJ,we'd love to have the legendary Bob Glidden stop in and join up and say hello.
What do you think guys,wouldn't this be totally awesome? :idea:

Imagine that Bob Glidden here with us Nobodys.Well Next to Bill he is truely someone. 8)

I remember a year or so ago, your dad taking test laps in your car, and turning in faster times than most people, really brought a smile to my face. Can never get the racing out of him no matter what you do. 8)

I met you and your wife I believe at a race in Michigan a few years ago, got one of your Glidden Racing Engines shirts then. It's one of my faves, I wear it to Chevy shows just to rile people up. :lol:

Yep, at Atlanta I think. When you get old sometimes you don't remember things completely.

Yes this is the "Legendary" Bob Glidden.
