John,
Like Brett said... thank you for all of the work you do.  The information you have gathered over the years has helped me document or gain accurate restoration information for more than one car.  Great choice Brett and WoW... gorgeous TA!!!!!!

Oh, I didn't know that.  

Well, it is STILL going to be REAL tough choosing between all these gorgeous TA's!!

I don't think I will vote, because I love them all!!  I can't choose one!   ;)

Is there a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place?? l ;D
