I waited a long time and never did see them come back! I would like to purchase her Avanti, but she never offered me a ride <G>.

        Thanks Brad. The gentleman in the picture with me is Tom Curtis, the new SDC President. It was great to see him there and yes he does own an Avanti. He was on his way home on Saturday with Ed Reynolds and came all the way to the Concours Field to say "Goodgye." Really appreciated the effort he made to do that

          Thanks guys for the kind comments on the Gettysburg Meet. I'm sorry I didn't get to talk with a lot of you during the meet. Taking care of the details of the meet don't leave you a lot of time to enjoy the show.

          Thank you Andy and Becky for making this a VERY special show by bringing the prototype to the meet. Thank you, AOAI for making the show a meet to remember, and, thank you Don Jones, for all the help in making this a very successful meet.

            Just want to acknowledge that I finally met Matthew in person and we spent some quality time at the show. A wonderful young man.

            Thanks Dennis and Don for an incredibly enjoyable event. Jeff

              Your pictures have convinced me to try to make the Gettysburg meet next year. Your pictures of the Rutland Car Show are great. I saw the beige 1940 Cpe rod in South Bend years ago. I believe that is the prettiest car I've ever seen.
