I'd like to have as many enthusiasts from this site,go to the link below and cast a vote for my Speedster. It is represented as one of the "your favorite cars". Hopefully you'll agree that "Ruby" is special,and is an all time favorite. Thanks for your support. See alot of you at Carlisle.

I voted for Ruby (of course!)  Al has done a remarkable job with this car and not only does it look fabulous it runs like a scalded dog!  Al and Bobbi once drove to Hot Springs and caravaned with me and Alice to Carlisle and we weren't passed the entire trip.  

btw--the voting on this deal is suspect to me because the car that has the most votes has a picture on the voting page that is so dark it could be a mule and a wagon.  No way folks could tell what it is enough to vote for it. I suspect Hillary is somehow involved.  Y'all get with it and put a vote in for Ruby!!

No catch Bill. Free is free! I've been receiving the magazine for almost 4 years.

I don't get the magazine, but they did do a nice story on my IM6 Speedster a couple of years ago.  The fellow writing the article was great to deal with, and the only error was in calling me a physician.  But that made a nice angle to the story :-).

I'll give a plug to the magazine as well.  It's free and yet the quality is better than any previous kit-car related magazine.  It covers a broader spectrum of collector cars beyond kits, and is really a good read.

You're right Lane. But, it doesn't have Max's column. That column alone made the rest of the mag worth the price of admission.

@DannyP  Danny:  Max has a weekly email column that he sends out.  It's not always car related, but it's a great read.  I love his writing.

And you know he has a Facebook page?

Two years later, in 2011, I attended my first Carlisle adventure. Odd, but there I was with a small group of attendees trying to stay dry  from a downpour under a tiny roof. And then, there it was, Ruby, in all its gloriousness, parked right in front of us and other more experienced members all mumbling something about Ruby. It was at that point I realized that you owned a Speedster with a high bar to jump over if I were to get into this group. It certainly needs to stand head and shoulders over those two Cobra replicas. Can I vote twice?
