New Year's Eve at Roberta Truppi's - December 31, 1974

Almost there, but Boast's (parents') car breaks down.
(That's Feather, Varmit and Terry pushing the Buick. Photo by Harry)


Tier and Nancy
(Looks like T is drinking a 16 oz. Pabst)


Jack with his hands full (but of what?)
- with Kim Boetcher & Roberta Truppi

What is Howie saying?

How about: “...'67, cherry red, 427”


Making Mel submit


Clete and Peggy
(The kitchen is always a good place to congregate.
That looks like a bottle of champagne near the sink.)

Left: Vince Borelli and Bummer. Vince is high as a grit. Pépé Freeman and Tony Pross sitting down behind them laughing hysterically about something. Roberta Truppi lived in Morris Plains.
