>> Hi John;

Love it when ya talk like that! Dream mode on, too. What would it take,
money-wise to Sponsor something like that? Yeah right! Like Vanderbilt said
about his Yacht" IF I had to worry about how much it cost I wouldn't have
it" Racing is an expensive hobby, be it sailboats or cars. Anyhow. Curious?
John you do so much for promoting the EV cause, here it comes, a List Racing
fund to help John push the bounds of racing. I.E. It's CHEAPER to let him
break stuff so I don't hafta!

So I'm stepping up to the plate with 100 bux toward the "Racing Fund" I
would offer more, but I'm retired and sorta on a fixed income, no 14 hour
Acela jobs with fat overtime, anymore.Sigh! Yeah, it isn't much, but in
numbers we have strength? My reasoning that I couldn't afford to race like
Zombie, but I can enjoy her running, for a FRACTION of what it would cost me
to field a vehicle like that. Now IF I can find JW's Snail Mail Addie, in my
archives.

OK Over to youse guyz.
