Last time I talked to him I think he was moving to Florida to be near some family. He just disappeared.

I thought it was somewhere in the Carolinas.
He was going to work for a Company involved with the stock car races (maybe Charlotte?)
His son worked for them.
Bill was going to be in charge of parts inventory etc.
I used to have his cell #.....can't find it now.

PM me and I can do a search for him .... can start in FL and Carolina's. Would need last name, approximate age, what city he formerly lived in, if he had a son what the son's name is. Land line phone numbers not hard to find but cell numbers may be inaccessible without paying site fees, hard to access. Anything helps.

Thru all the years of visiting the store, I never got his last name. Excellent to deal with. Also remember him saying going south where his son was.

I am a newcomer to the hobby and dealt with Bill only a couple of times. But he became my standard of excellence. I expected that everyone should be as friendly and helpful. I have met a couple of people that measured up (James at job lot and Joe at Joe's Antiques) and wish that there were more as good as Bill.

I agree with FireEngineMike, Bill (and my good friend Dick) were in a class by themselves.

William Hoellerich. Works at the same company that his son does. I believe the company owns the monster trucks among other things. The only person I know who he has maintained any contact with is Frank Spadaro, Dick's cousin. Had to dig his old business card out of the boxes of cards I got from Dick's. Couldn't remember the proper spelling of his last name. I estimate I have 10,000 cards, names and leads in the 3 boxes and Rolodex's so it's was amazing I found the card!

Not guaranteed but I find:

William R. Hoellerrich
6308 Rock Creek Circle
Ellenton FL 34222
(518) 477-6564 (apparently still using a cell number based on a NY State area code ... when dialing, include the "518" regardless of where you are calling from)

I had a great ride with Dick in that coupe from Saratoga Springs to Altamont and back to Saratoga Springs in his '32 pickup.

Anybody connect with Dick? I was looking to buy a early 3 bolt to 2 bolt distributor adapter from him. his website still shows them.
I realize I can just order from Speedway but figured I would buy from someone here first if possible.


Thanks
