I owned 11 DYN for about six months, I swapped my Dodge Superbee for it, from memory, Dick Lambert (remember him) bought it from Martin Bonner, I did the deal with Dick, Can't remeber who bought it from me. What a great car, prefered it as the gasser it was, to how it is now, I used to love pulling up at traffic light and looking down at the car next to me, being up so high it seemed huge, then suprise the crap out of the person next me by the speed it would leave the lights, Ah! childish boy racer memories, thanks to 11 DYN for them, again a great car.

We must not forget to mention Pete Leddy, it was his cine film (which I have been the custodian of for the past 30 years) of the Spirit of the Fities , including the footage of 11 DYN , which got the film show off to such a memorable start.
Cheers Pete now when are you going to bloody collect them.
Pete I don't know if you ever get over but it would be great if there was ever another night and you could make it.

Thanks to all that have posted pictures and anecdotal snippets of this memorial and historic event. Seeing everyone mixing, and the smiles on the faces just reinforces my feelings of those special times 30 years ago. I can just imagine the conversations and the questions being asked... Brian to Mike, "so, did you get over that worst cold in the world?", Simon to Allan, "Seen Kenny Rogers lately".
The celebrity lookalikes were a nice touch, Marilyn was good, but Colonel Sanders was the best I have seen.
Stew and Sam, and Milt and Tracy, you deserve all the accolades you have received over this night. You created a one off experience, and set the bar so high that it can not be repeated. Rare is the day that I wish I was back in the UK, but "20th June 2009" will go down as one of them.

That was supposed to be Colonel Sanders ? , I thought it was Rolf Harris but now you mention it there was a strange smell of 11 different herbs and spices :incheek:

For most of the evening I thought Marilyn was a hired in lookalike...I didn't realise it was Stew and Milt's sister. Stunning!:cool:
