Hi Steve,

I must have seen you! I wish I had stopped to say hello. Had a fantastic time
overall. There couldn't be a sweeter victory than watching that MGB do honors
for the breed! The whole day was awesome.

We should touch base before these events. You have applause due you too. What
company to be in between: a Ferrari and a Porsche 928, and beaten by a Jaguar
XK140! Not at all shabby. Congratulations!
