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
