A few hours ago, I recieved a call from Leon, from London, offering to
imburse me for the cost of the hood repair. He said he felt it was his
responsibiltiy, as the car was under his control at the time. The
problems were, of course, beyond his control.
As a result of Leon's offer, I will not be out the money I originally

I am deeply appreciative of the strong support and good will of the
this list. I only hope I can live up to the good words Tom spoke of me.
Again, thanks to all of you, and to Tom for initiating the offers. And I
promise not to let the repairs cut into my time on this list (I can't
