Sarge....  give us some details on the old DKP Top Ten board....  you were always in the running weren't you?
Were members positions on the board determined by e.t.'s @ the strip, or by street warfare?

There must be some good stories behind this....

 Angry  where's the love??? Wink  I can't remember whose idea it was to have the Top Ten board but it was a good one.  Most of the bragging rights were settled after club meetings... sometimes right out in front of the club house on Chestnut St Shocked Shocked.  I've shared a number of photos with you guys of the Bug-In in 1972 when DKP went all out on a club display and I think the top ten deal was an idea we came up with for that event.  I made the board from plywood and wooden house numbers that I spray canned silver.  The names I did on illustration board and we all had one.  In my pic, #1 Underdog, #2 Mahaffey, #3 Dave Patrick, #4 Thurber, #5 Whit Haydon, #6 Fleming, #7 Edmiston, #8 Jim Brooks, #9 Steve Liekus, #10 Sergio Rampone.  Most importantly, your car car actually had to run to stay on the board... no resting on past laurels. Wink  Wish I had got the pic centered for the chopped off photos on the right Sad.

Sarge,
What do you remember about Steve Liekus? I went to Anaheim H/S and FJC with him. I was driving my '63 Kombi ('glas flairs and scoops with Keystones w/big meats on the rear) at the time and he and I would hang out at Tastee Freez across from Anaheim H/S. I remember him talking about trying to get in the club, but my music career took me in a different direction in '71 and I lost track of him.

Jim, after I sent my comment I thought how tacky it was, so here and now I do say, I'm sorry. Sad Sad  Moving on, I had no idea that YOU made the board.  Guess I never thought about it, cause it always seemed to be there.  Once again guys, I must say the Sarge was and is a driving force of the DKP legacy and my hat's off to you.  Cool Cool Cool Cool

Sarge,

I was driving my '63 Kombi ('glas flairs and scoops with Keystones w/big meats on the rear) at the time and he and I would hang out at Tastee Freez across from Anaheim H/S. I remember him talking about trying to get in the club, but my music career took me in a different direction in '71 and I lost track of him.

I sure do remember Steve Liekus.  He lived on North St. Between West St. and Lorara.  It was a two story home that had been moved into the location.  I think his folks had that done.  This was only about three block from my parents home.

Steve was known as "Mr. Music" because he was quite well versed on the subject.  The other thing I remember was his long hair and he was always jerking his head to move the hair out of his face.  It became a thing for all of us to do as a "mock".

At the DKP I Reunion Steve showed up with short hair and no one knew what to say.

What years were you at Anaheim Hi?  Sharon (Johnson) Edmiston was there '61-'64 along with Ron Fleming.  Myself, Huggins, Dayton and others '62-'65.

If Mahaffey's split was still around in it's 2180cc incarnation, I think it would STILL post on a DKP III Top Ten....

About all I can recall was a skinny kid with long stringy blond hair that loved his music as John pointed out.  So it was strange seeing the "new" Steve at the reunion  in 1990.... Shocked Shocked Shocked
