I can't remember the guys name but it was the late 80s The boat was a black shadow called The Collection He must have popped a mold because he was trying to sell some boats. Anyhow on the last lap he put the boat on the beach. Well as it turned out the feds found him and gave him a ride to school.
Anybody know this fellows name?

You are thinking of Joey Robregez. He had a Cougar called The Collection.

I see, another boarding school case, what about now is he still boating. There ought to be a book or something on the history of offshore, so us beginners could catch up. We were attempting to tell some friends about the whole Ben K., Don A. thing they asked if it was a movie!
Sorry, I don't mean to get you guys off topic, just want
to know more, like others have said there sure is a history of knowledge on this thread, thanks

The last time I saw Willie was at the world's in KW a few years back..he was throttling somebody else's Pantera in a smaller class......and was very low key.

The amazing thing is that there are a number of Super Cat and SCL teams today that could have a dramatic improvement in competitiveness....if they put Willie on the sticks...... T

This guy took NO prisoners....kept himself in perfect condition...... and never blinks.....

As far as the history thing...DarrenUS1 is currently editing the largest historical race library of the period from 1978 to 1996.....Phil Lewis' NNRT Productions... This stuff has interviews with EVERYBODY including Ben and Don, and Willie, and Willie Falcon, and Sal, and Brownie, and Richie Powers and Mark Lavin, and Bob Kaiser, and Betty Cook, and Howard Arneson, and Bobby Moore, and Reggie Fountain, and Bobby Saccenti, and James Caan, and Tom Gentry, and Al Copeland, and Billy Sirois, and Bill Wishnick, and Rocky Aoki............. and literally hundreds of other characters.....

Oh, and there's some racing too!

Look for a press release soon.
