Went to the Portland, OR ABFM today. Had a great turnout, over 650 entries.
There were two Rover's there. A 1959 P-4 90 and Reed Elwyn's 1968 2000 TC.
Reed took a first place in Unique Marques of the 60's. Those of you that
have seen this car know that it would be a winner in any class. This is the
cleanest original 1968 of any marquee that I have ever seen. I would buy it
in a minute - are you listening Reed?
By the way, I took a second place in the MGB 68 to 74 class (later chrome
bumper) with my 74 MGB. This car is almost done. A few more tweaks and it
will be there.
While there, I met a new gentleman, Jim Tanzer, who has recently purchased a
1959 P-5 with Auto. It was serial number 00002. I saw a photo of the ID
plate. It was like a 63000002 to the best of my memory. Unfortunately he is
not on the internet. I strongly advised him to get a computer or have a
friend monitor for him. I will be giving him some information on Rovernet
and Ruth's phone number to get him started correctly. He needs a few bits
now, but as we all know he needs to connect with this great group to more
fully appreciate and enjoy his new toy.
