Dear Chip and family,
My name is Bill Smeltzer, I met your father along time ago at U.S.
30 dragstrip in Merriville IN.
I have a personally autographed Photo of Bob from the mid 60's.
I am now 50 and I drive the Adrenaline Rush Jet Dragster.
I have always wanted to own one ever since I met him !
I'm sending you a photo of mine.
Got into helping other guys with there jets, Ancel Horton, Chuck Haynes,
Joe Douthit, Bruce Abbott, Mike Pond, about 6 years ago.
Always wanted one since about age 13, after seeing and meeting Bob, and one
of the Arfons at U.S. 30 dragstrip.
Here I am at 50 years old and my dream came true.
Last year was first year with car, made about 85 runs with it.
It is no doubt the best move in my life I've made.
I just love it and hope to do it for at least the next 15 years.
Your Dad motivated me about 37 years ago to get into JETS.
Thanks Bob, God Bless you.
Hope he heard that !
