Re: The Great Missing Cars

Dear Dave,

As I mentioned on another chat line, it is quite a mystery as to what happened to the second from last 500 Mondial Series II serial 0574/MD after Sbraci ran at Pescara on 8/19/56.

Best regards,

Robert

Re: Help identifying radiator blind control.

Dear John,

Many years ago working on a Lotus Europa with all the cables and sheaths from the foot well to the back of the car I found that a Marine Supply Store had all sorts of different cables and sheaths in all sizes of length and diameter. That might be a solution for you.

Best regards,

Robert

Hi Tom and Tom, HelenAnn and I and the blue car will be there. The car was invited back as a previous Best of Show winner.

Re: Houdaille Shocks

The total price tag at that time was just under $1,200. The estimated cost for a total reproduction seems in...

I can safely say that a good time was had by all. Tom thank you for the help in Bryan's photo escapade. Best regards,...

Re: Who's Coming To The Monterey Gathering?

Hey guys, after attending the latest Garre/Yang extravaganza who would want to go all the way to Pebble Beach??? After all, been there, done that.

Seriously, regret that I will not be attending Pebble this year, sounds like a great time to be had.

Re: Cayman museum

Dear Steve, I have not been to the Caymans and do not know where the cruise ships dock. I found out about the museum from a postcard sent by a friend visiting there.

May I suggest a magnesium tro...
