I am so very sorry to hear that Van has passed away. Your whole family has my deepest sympathy. I can't begin to tell you how many times I saw Van Hatley go down Shuffletown Drag Strip. Also when you heard the name Van Hatley you always thought of a 1955 Chevrolet. One other thing I remember is it was always "Van Hatley" Never just "Van" or "Hatley". He probably never knew most of us, but we all were big Fans !
