Finally.... this attests to the meme - if you don't succeed the first time, try again.

Congrats Len. I was skeptical of the pics but what do I know...

Thanks folks.

I know it's been said before but: there are so many nice cars that belong to our members, it's a wonder that one can be centered out in a monthly contest.

I am honoured to be picked this time by you so thank you .

To the runners up, I'd say what I was told previously: try, try again. Your turn to be chosen may come next month

Probably not this year. Usually off the road by Nov 1 (although weather gods say Nov supposed to be warmer than usual )
