I've been waiting for this to open for years, looking forward to taking it all in. And Geno, if you want to see a real "British Invasion" don't miss SOVREN's PNW Historics at PRW, https://www.sovren.org/events/historics/ June 29th-July 1st. The feature marque is all British Cars. Boy Racer and I will be there to represent the Big Healey.

No wonder it looked great - still remember Reid's car from the 2006 issue on the AHCUSA devoted to the 100M.
