Bill and I struck up a friendship close to 20 years ago when he approached me (Bob Hall) at Martin Drag way about a car I had that he was considering buying but i got to it first. That more or less motivated him to turn his Camaro into a race car that we spent quite a bit of time working on together and just hanging around the garage, drinking a Pepsi. Bill was a great guy and I will miss him a bunch.
