I would like to thank the person who gave me the "Devin" embroidered patches at the Akron ECH. I am embarrassed to say that I forget names easily and I should have written it down. My race seat cover came with the manufacturer logo which quickly converted to the Devin logo thanks to you. Thank you for your support.

My friend Chris Duerr runs with VSCCA so I might attend a race.

1965 356C There is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.

Thank you to my good friend Vic for moral support at Sebring this weekend. I had a few small problems with the car but my major pre-race concerns turned out to be no problem at all. The Devin is great fun to drive and seems quite competent. I will attend to the issues and see how she runs at Road Atlanta in April. Thank you to the well wishers. I will post some pictures when I am home and have a real internet connection.

Doug, I will pass on that one. No more projects for me! Unless....

Thanks Wes. My Gopro mount cracked in qualifying and the camera was found on track and returned after the race. I do have some qualifying footage though. I will get that together.

Cliff:

Fine thing to see our fellow 356 brethren " on the podium " I am starting to think we need to have a vintage racing forum department.

It it my imagination or is Tom Olson everywhere? I wasn't expecting to see him 3000 miles from home, but I was happy that he showed up.
