Postby Dino » Mon Dec 27, 2010 12:44 pm

Bill Casey....Known for his "Super Pumpkin" Drag Cars...from his original '57 Chevy Gasser to his Camaros.

William T. “Billy” Casey, 64, beloved husband for forty-two years of Donna (Palmieri) Casey of Westerly, RI died November 8, 2010 in the Westerly Hospital.
Born in Bronx, NY, he was a son of the late Edward P. Casey, Sr. and Mildred Casey.
His lifelong love of all things automotive, he formed Casey Engineering, and was free to share his knowledge and help with all who asked. He owned and operated an Auto Service Center business for several years, was assistant Harbor Master in Mamaroneck, NY and then a Property Manager for GRP Realty Company before retiring. A regional hero and icon in the Drag Racing World, he was a lifetime member of the Dover Drag Strip Alumni.
Billy leaves a daughter Cheryl Casey of Westerly; two brothers Edward Casey of Cape Coral, FL and Robert Casey of Pawling, NY and two sisters, Mary Casey, of Poughkeepsie, NY and Judy Vitolo, of Fishkill, NY. He will also be missed by his extended family, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Bill Casey was a friend and neighbor of mine several years before his creation of the "Super Pumkin" '57 Chevy.
I wrote the parody; "Casey At The Track" for him on the day if his surgery just to cheer him up a bit.

I hope you'll have a look...! :D
