What a legend bloke. I remember a very tall man walking into the shed where the cars were stored and I approached him and said , " hi mate, can I help you" seeing a stranger in the shed with the cars. He said " Hi, I am Steve, looking for Scott"

It took me a minute cause he is a lot taller than I thought and there was no attitude or any indication that he was the man Roop. I walked up and said sorry I had no idea who you were, he was astonished by the cars in the shed and said this takes me back 30 years. The humble way he conducted himself over the day was a credit to him.

The rest of the day he signed autographs, said his lines and acted like an absolute legend, nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Steve for coming and like the other guys who came thans for beng so accomodating and giving to us fans. A highlight of the weekend for me was riding in the front of the Big Bopper with Roop driving yeling out lines from the movie, what a blast. I know John from Scotland will never forget the time he spent with you and the effort you went to to give him the shots and memories.

Thank you Steve.

I cant wait for John to get home and post the pics to this story

I have to say i did the same thing when he was at the shed. I had no clue who this tall fellow was !
I had the pleasure of driving steve and george to and from the shed and listening to those two guys chat about the movie was simply the icing on the cake!

Just a pity it was a damned rental car... lol

Steve Millichamp, the man himself. I really love this shot with the Bopper, and i love the way the seat belt is hanging out of the door. True "Roop' style :D
