Congrats to you!  I met Bill Warner at Lime Rock last year with his group 44 Triumph in the paddock.  I spoke to him about his car and racing in general.  I had no idea who he was at the time.  He was very gracious.  The Tucker looks great!

Howard, last year’s Open Houses had with your divine intervention?? manage to have mostly excellent weather, however this Sunday Open House weather looks questionable (unless you can pull off another intervention??). Most likely it will be wet, your collection will be indoors with assess through the hallway/garage doors??
Howard Kroplick

It is rain or shine! The cars will be safe and sound in the garage.

Thank you for the great open house you had yesterday Howard.  I brought a few friends and they were very impressed with your wonderful collection.
It turned out to be much better weather than anticipated and you had a big turn out.
Thanks again for all you do to promote the old car community !
