Very sorry to report the death of Bill Wishnick.

His wife e-mailed me a short time ago, I will fill in the details as I get them.

A Sad Day
Remember seeing Bill race offshore in NJ, and also with his street stock car at Wall Stadium in NJ A real racer ,, boats and cars. He picked the lowest class stock car just to have fun on a Saturday night.

RIP.

Thank you
Jim

Damn Bill was cool. What other CEO of a huge company wears a pony tail.
