    Fond memories of the Kilt !

    There is now one next to the light rail near my kid's condo in Hoboken. Son-in-law now has a close game watching spot.

    I remember quite a lot of this. And now it's come full circle. I planned the first show on the lawn at FoD (pre-Boardwalk) with Rob, and now my wife is the Events Planner for the Boardwalk Auto Group! I remember checking FChat multiple times a day instead of lurking once every month or two as I have lately.

    Somewhere in a box, having moved from office to office, is a plaque/trophy from ICF from the year the Enzo we brought (was a client's car, obviously) won best in show. I remember repeatedly stalling Chris's F40 on the lawn at ICF for fear of tearing up said lawn.

    I remember the 1-5-7 incident in Ennis. I was there with Jonathan in a RUF Porsche. I remember another run in a different RUF Porsche (borrowed) watching Manny's Fire-arri get small in the rearview, then seeing DryHole in my rearview trying (unsuccessfully) to pass me on the twisty parts.

    What I don't remember, though, is my old screen name...

    Changed it to that after I moved to Houston. Gave it up to the company as they were paying for the subscription and advertising then.

    Bump.

    Hey Jim -- if those models were 18 when this photo was taken, they're 32 today.

    Your thought for the day :)

    Are you a little bored T?

    Here's a thought, Rob looked like he was 18 when that photo was taken (see post 33), and now he's in his 40's!

    Wow. Just went through the thread, again. Lots of hair that no longer exists, lots of youth that's gone. Lots of pounds have been found. :)
