I'd just like to say a little word of thanks in here even though I didn't go. A BIG thanks you to the Spirit of the Fifties guys , and associated others ,who contributed so much to our early days.I always marvelled at those of Yank 'tanks' and the guys who were rich enough ( or so I thought and that's been put right by all the stories shared on the various forums ) and focused enough to to souce spares to keep them running in the days pre 'net .
Likewise I never knew Dave Grady other than by reputation and articles about him. I am truly touched by the obvious fondness with which you all remember him and also his input into the scene in general .
We have lost , far too early , many others from those early days .
That my friends is what history is about , not just the cars but the characters and the shared laughs and moments .That's why we must remember it and not allow memories to fade or be brushed aside.
Well done to Stew and Milton for putting this together and keeping the spirit alive.
