Congratulations, Lance! Vindicated at last. The British
V8 website is indeed a treasure trove. I find it
difficult to fathom how Curtis Jacobson has avoided seeing
a P6B, but I trust you gave him a thorough education.
Well done. I look forward to seeing the pictures.
In the restoration business it pays to be
