Dave - Look for Bob Drury's Studebaker he's a hoot as is one of his sponsors John from AutoCraft. They look like the odd couple height wise.

Nice pic, but I can hardly tell what kind of bike that red thing is, next time, use a telephoto or get closer.

Apparently lots of different classes for competitors. You've been busy!
