On Saturday November 8, 2004, the 11th Annual “Hearts of Valor Car & Motorcycle Show” was held at the Ahwatukee Community Center (Phoenix) to raise funds for wounded veterans. Ron and Diane Waller took first place in their division, 1951 – 1969 “stock” automobiles. In addition, they won the award for “Sponsor’s Choice,” which was given by Discount Tires for “show favorite.” There were more than 70 cars and motorcycles on display.
Their 1967 VW is the fifth the Waller’s have owned which included a 1960, 1968, 1971 and a 1972. Earlier this year their car also won 1st place at the annual “Bugs-O-Rama” which was held at the Wild Horse Pass Raceway in March. Waller is a veteran himself, serving as a sergeant in the Marine Corps from 1967 – 1971.
Congrats again! Thank you for your service, Ron. Semper Fi.
