Itís getting there.
John are you going to stick around for Caffeine and Octane on Sunday? If you do you might want to contact them, they always have an area set aside in the main section for special cars. Your R107 with the V12 should qualify.

You need to learn to to present these things to your wife. Instead of saying to her. "Would you like to come to GA with some of us 107 owners" Try. "Honey, would you like to come and see where Gone with the Wind was filmed"
