"Just finished watching 'Memory Boulevard' and all I can say is WOW! 5 Stars. You've managed to capture all the great cars and the happy faces of those of us who were fortunate to have grown up in that magical time called the fabulous 50's. You can be sure that I'll be sharing your video artistry with my family and friends, especially during this winter as we look forward to summer sunshine, old cars, great music and a few precious days to be '17' again. Bob Hope said it best. 'Thanks for the Memories.' " F.L., West Milford, NJ

"I viewed the video
and, SPECTACULAR. AS USUAL! You and your company are true professionals. This
past year was my second year at Lead East. The second of many! Whenever I get
the winter blues here in Rhode Island, I just pop in one or both of the videos
and relive the two greatest vacations I have been on. I truly mean that!
"Best video you guys ever did. It is outstanding. Very well balanced. It truly gives you the feeling that you're at the event. I have tons of tapes, but yours are the models of how event tapes should be. I'm thrilled with 'Memory Boulevard'." N.D., Olean, NY

quotes we could have included.
"I just wanted to write to say how much I loved your video of Lead East ‘93. I ordered the ‘94, too. Your staff is excellent. I hope you always cover this event." J.L., Howard Beach, NY
"Don't stop the creative juices from flowing. I've watched "Lead" several times when I'm on the road and it's a postcard from home." D.D., Wanaque, NJ
"We have both of the ‘93 tapes and I've watched them both 5 times. Outstanding. Seeing a tape is one thing, but the sound of customs going by makes your tapes the best over all we've seen." B.C., Tinley Park, IL
"We just wanted to tell you that you do a great job capturing the event! Both the 1993 and 1994 videos are extremely professional and enjoyable to view. We particularly like the way you incorporated the Joel Katz & Twilight song "Back in the 50's" in the ‘94 video! It is a wonderful song which summarizes the feelings of the patrons of Lead East. You were able to capture the spirit and the high points of the weekend with the images you set to this music. Great job! We look forward to attending 1995 Lead East and to seeing your next video." D.L., Germantown, MD
"The videos are the life of the party here in K.C." S.S., Kansas City, MO
"Thank you...for producing truly one of the best ROD tapes I have ever seen." J.R.H., Bergenfield, NJ
"I just received the two videos ordered from the 1993 Lead East Weekend–the Event Video and 1949-1951 Shoebox Fords and Mercs. The quality, content and audio are excellent. They are first-rate videos and welcome additions to my personal collection. Thanks for a great job. I look forward to attending next year's event and purchasing your great tapes!" J.P.M., New Rochelle, NY
"My hat's off to you and everyone at Fairway Productions for the "GREAT" job you performed on putting together the LEAD EAST 94 video. If the whole weekend activities could have been compressed into one hour, then this video is certainly the proof. One terrific production job. You should be very proud of your work." M.R., Phillipsburg, NJ
"The metallic Green was vivid and not washed-out like some other footage I've seen. Very well done. During the whole film I was treated to power aerials sliding down into cool fender recesses, "Marque" ornamentation, air brushing scenes, and the detail on the glass engraving was epic!! You get high marks for these little "goodies." Of note: the scene with the man and his wife cruising in the ‘59 Ford Sunliner with the great "rug" music was a total hook to all our sensitivities to the ‘50's." D.D., Mesa, AZ
"Parties are never dull with these tapes. A class act." D.W., Derby NY

for your fast response. Since moving to Florida the only thing we miss about the

is great. Will need more. How can I order?"

"Got my tape today.
Love the cover. I feel that your work is most important to document our enjoyment.
Just to know that we might be in the video is exciting. We have seen ourselves
in many during the last ten years. It reminds me of American Bandstand when the
couples were on camera for the viewing audience. Your filming seems to add to
the importance of the event."
