We as enthusiast should be researching and looking for evidence to preserve this masterpiece.

It would be great to see if we can find the original contract.
Fear not my friend! PACO is going to rescue it.

Mentioned to the wife......she told me she would be 'off' if I spent that kind of money, or, I needed to sell my restored 1973 MG Midget. I told her I'd get on Ebay and see what MG's are going for. I was smart enough not to give her the suite case !!

I remember a dealer in Roanoke, Va. had a H&R T-48. I flew up there and looked at it and actually had it in my lap. This was in like 1973. I did get some scraps from one that i sold here on Market Place about a year ago.
