Default Thank you Lucky Strike! You made my day!

I actually found OSO quite a few years ago while looking for pictures of my dad racing back in the late 70's. He passed away about 2 years ago and I only have 2 pathetic photos of him, one is a black and white photocopy of the Long Island fisherman where he had a record Tuna and one other 2" x 2" photo of him. Since I don't have contact with most of my family i had no way of getting photos of my dad. I posted on here several times over the years with the same question "does any one have any photos of a boat called the Executioner racing back in 1978 or 1979?". I had someone promiss me a video from back then but it got lost in the mail.
Today Lucky strike and Lucky strike junior walked in my office with a dvd of the 1979 Benihana and sure enough the boat and my dad were in the video. Instant goose bumps.

I can't tell you how much this video means to me. Thank you so much for finding it and taking the time to get it to me. I will treasure it!
