About Bill Abatecola
Let's start from the beginning…I started building race cars in 1958. Most of them were stock cars and raced at Seekonk Speedway, (Action Track of the East.) I was 14 years old and building competitive cars that were outstanding winners. Put in roll bars and crash bars, built headers and fabricated wheels and heavy-duty spindles for stock car racing. 1961, started building drag cars at the age of 16 (long before he was born). Built gassers, 1941 Willys BB/G. I fabricated chassis, headers, built streetcars. 1963, worked with Bob Tasca Sr. to build the 63 Fairlane AFX car. Built King and Marshall AA/F dragster. FABRICATION SHOP 1965, I opened a fabrication shop devoted to race car building. From 1965 to 1980, I built, modified more than 400 cars, 22 national record holders.

License Plate Readers Ticket Cars For Polluting The Air.
It has taken Siemens only two years to combine license plate reading cameras with vehicle pollution sensors.
The people who approve of the “Green New Deal” are at it again. They want to put a limit on how many miles you are allowed to drive. They want to limit drilling and fracking. It seems they want to get rid of all fossil fuels (oil).
If you look at the history of this country, you will see that oil was and still is the lifeblood of this country. The turn of the 20th century brought on a new age of progress in many different areas, such as automotive, industry, medicine, and new and better products made of plastic which comes from oil.
The best time was sportscar racing with Paul Newman. I helped build his Datsun, Bob Sharp campaign. and Tom Ciccone drove backup Lime Rock, CT
