Hi Dennis.

Thanks for your kind words.
I live in Roswell (Atlanta) Georgia.

I wish I could keep Black Beauty but circumstances won't permit. There's no
emergency to sell her but she'll have to go sometime over the next 90 to 120
days anyhow. I can't leave a new model Corvette convertible sitting outside
very long!

I've just today paid an entry fee to put her in a antique/classic car
collector's auction that is being held this coming Saturday. I've set a
reserve minimum so if I don't get at least my asking price there, I won't
sell her - and, I stand a chance to get a lot more. We'll see what happens.
There are going to be 300-400 cars in the auction. At least if I sell her,
somebody that cares about classic cars should get her.

Nice hearing from you. Carry on with your hobby. I had lots of fun with
Black Beauty - and I'll also have lots of fun with my Vette too!!!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Hi Jerry,
        I've been looking at your "Old Friend" that you've put so much love
& time into... It is a beaut!  I got a '77  (locally) about a year ago and
after the initial apprehensions wore off I started to really love it.  I'm
doing some suspension work and re-carpeting this winter. After some other
work on the engine and Z-S carb this past summer it was pretty dependable.
(only 64k miles on it)
        So, I was curious where you live...  Sometime I'd like to own a
chrome bumpered MGB.  I live in upstate NY and I wish I had built my garage
a little larger!!  I'm on the autox list and I am inspired by enthusiasts
like yourself.  I hope to continue in my new hobby as long as I can balance
it with all my other interests!

Good Luck,

Dennis Luther
