    Tony, it was great of you to share your photo with us. I get comments all the time, pretty much every time a visitor comes in my garage that has many pictures and posters, yet almost without fail they have great comments about your print.

    Just wanted you not to forget how many of us appreciate this great offer.

    If you don't have one, get one while they last! You won't regret it.

    Back in '13 when Tony started this project I bought 11 of the prints to do my part to make sure the project to come to fruition. I never posted this to this thread as I didn't want to step on Tony's main way of selling his prints. But since there's been no updates on the thread in 11 months.... I figure its OK now.

    We've had the prints on our website since then and seem to sell one every six months or so. We sold our 8th copy this morning.

    As I have mine on my office wall and its never leaving, we only have 2 left. These are from Tony's original production run of 50 and are SN# 27 & 28. The package includes the print, letter from Tony, letter from R&T and the proof sheet.

    Here is the link to them on our site:

    In the spirit of the Benicio del Toro Heineken adds, buy one for yourself and make sure you get a good Christmas present this year!

    Wet snowy road and XWX's are a bad combo.

    Glad to hear Mike. The project was so cool, I left it on our site with a 'No Longer Available' status. I'm actually sad they are all gone!

    Very cool of you to invest to help the project come to fruition. I wish you had more as well because I'd like to have one for myself at some point. Got this one for an erstwhile friend who was kind enough to share his enthusiasm and F-cars with me before I owned one, so I think it'll have an appreciative and deserving home.

    Thanks again. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future.

    Warm Regards,

    ///Mike

    That's very nice you are giving it to your friend as a gift. We all need friends like that.

    Check with Tony as I think he said he might make a few more with a new printer. The artwork is serialed to 150. But only 50 were made in the original run. So technically he could make a few more without violating the limited series aspect. But I don't know if he ever did make more.

    Glad to see this thread pop up!!

    Notification that the market is satisfied, and he should gamble on another 50!
    I well know that producing these is expensive!

    Well done, JohnB!!

    #27, 28 were good numbers, I recognize the significance...;)

    pretty sure it was my beautiful bride who scored it. the mailing label on the tube that showed up gave it away. look forward to unwrapping and framing.

    thank you very much for bringing this awesome childhood memory of R&T PS back

    Thanks for posting, John. You were definitely a big part of making this project happen with your kind purchase of numerous prints. It really got the ball rolling. To any others who would still like a print, I plan on doing a run of prints in the new year, so if you are interested, you can contact me directly at tonyhavana@mac.com. These will still be from the original series of 150, IIRC, I am at around #80 now. Cheers....Tony

    I have a bunch of framed work in my garage that I like very much, but Tony's picture and caption generate the most comments and interest, by far! A must for all BB owners and Boxerphiles! So thanks again to Tony for making these available to us.

    Aware, probably paid a premium for it. ;-)

    I need to frame my print at some point, its been in the tube for years. Always loved this PS when I originally saw it in R&T.
