Jim and my Father worked together as locksmiths at Penn State in the early to mid 60's. One time he had trailer problems while racing at Houtzdale speedway, and couldn't haul his stock car back to his house. He asked my Dad if he could park it at our house and my Dad said sure, no problem. I was the hit of the town when all the kids found out it was parked in our driveway. We all climbed in and sat in the driver's seat, great times as a youngster. In 1967 I was in the military and had an old 57' chevy and my Dad asked Jim if he would paint it for me, Jim replied yeah sure no problem. How much Jim? nothing for a son that is in the military. Many fond memories of Jim. RIP God Speed Dennis Dillon
