    Wow. Such a great and touching story and so fitting that the car should find you after all these years. Thanks for sharing and enjoy what looks to be a fabulous car.

    You are a VERY fortunate man, those kind of stories don't come along very often. As the PCA saying goes (started by a Maverick region member) "Its not the cars, its the people" Do you know if they autocrossed at Parades or was it just SCCA? That car will be your 'keeper'

    I had the chance to autocross with/against them when Chris and I had our first 911 in the late 70s. Fun days.
