Dippy Derby, 1960Ciao! We're off on another adventure.
Okay, so the derby hat is a bit dippy, but oh what fun we had in that go cart! Ciao! We’re off on another adventure. That’s me waving at you from the Cocomobile, and the crazy driver is my kid sister, Joy. She’s a much better driver than she was back then. Look at the car in the background.

The Fearsome Foursome, 1963
The fearsome foursomeThis is a photo of the four Coco children taken in 1963. My sister, Risa, is the sleeping baby; my kid sister, Joselle, has the pixie haircut; and my brother, Larry, has the curly hair.
