This set will be very cool. The early years of NNRT and the obsolete Rich Luhrs are some of the best offshore racing footage ever filmed. It was from an era that I fondly remember as, “Build a Boat, Install huge motors, Race it, break it, build a new one.” You were supposed to “Drive it like you stole it”, The “V” bottoms were wave crushers, and the Cat guys seemed to have a hard time telling a 3 foot wave from a 6 footer. Just watch Bobby Sheer or Willy Diaz. If I am right, Phil Lewis started filming in 1979 or so, and the suave debonair Rich Luhrs started hanging out of a helicopter door in 1982. Some of Rich Luhrs comments alone are worth the price of the collectors set. Darren will deliver a primo collection. I am sure Darren and Phil are looking forward to working together.

I'm thinking aloud...but maybe you can work out some sort of deal with Steve to sell those DVDs/Videos exclusively here on OSO...I'm sure you'll sell more than 57 and the only reason I bring this up is I'm sure both you and Phil and Darren have a minimum number in mind to make this worthwhile. All I can say is "build it, they will come" I for one would hate to dee this idea go by the wayside because a minimum number can't be reached...

All the best

Hey Rich, Darren & Phil,

Also include in your count a 500 peice mailer to NJPPC members and former members - NO CHARGE!

I just want a set for next year's NJPPC Winter Party in Atlantic City.

Hey - how about a private preview party at a bar with a few dozen TV's & Big Screens.
How cool would that be?
