You definitely had the better weather day on Saturday but Sundays weather was not as bad as forecast.  I really enjoyed the experience of showing a car at Greenwich.  As always enjoyed talking to you.

Not many two time winners at Greenwich Howard! It was great seeing you there. This is one of my favorite shows. I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t attended. Some of the finest classic cars on the planet every year.
