    Dear Panthers,
    Got to visit briefly Sunday about 9 on my way home to Virginia from Canada w two sleepy teenagers and two sheepdogs. Festers were coming alive, finding coffee. Got to meet some legendary listers and as a wagonman beelined to two fine machines. A must have been garaged stock CP with 50k. Great car. Made my Boulevard Cruiser seem, er, battered. Also a CS set up for motocross with 17 inch wheels, suspension, 140 mph speedo and an exceptional engine compartment.

    Great to put faces and cars to you all.
