    Default Allison 50th Anniversary Pictures

    These are just the first set from Friday at the Allison Craft 50th reunion. I should have more by tomorrow when my family gets back

    They've been calling me and telling me about all the people I didn't get to meet. Like Bob Valachovic and Kenny Kitson But hopefully I'll get to meet you both at the Switzer Reunion in Sept. I just had too many things going on to make it to this one.

    I think everyone will recognize this first picture --- my son Parker called me on the cell phone and said, "MOM! Guess what I am standing next to!"

    The next pictures are of a rare Allison from the past...

    They also payed a visit to Paul Allison's unique home. He is quite the artist!


    I believe the man second from left is Jim Hunt (?), followed by Louis Collins and Paul Allison. The man on the far right is Jim Contzen, current owner of Hydrostream.

    Look who is here. I didnt expect to have representation from Mercury there, especially with the race trailer so i went to see what they had for sale and I thought the shirts were a bargin at 6.00 . I said to them to place this logo that is on the shirt back on the truck like it should be . They just smiled. (Only having fun with them).
