I'll be thinking of you on Monday Henry.  More importantly, It sold it for multiple times what you originally paid for it.  So as an investment, which was a big part of it (I believe?), you made out very well.

Now let's work on that cool car idea you had.

Henry, we realize that's something akin to losing part of the family...well, maybe like losing a long-time girlfriend...Great memories, though.  Thanks for all you've done for the Region.

Hey Henry.  Sorry, to hear she's gone.  Keep your chin up and enjoy the next phase!

Henry,
I am glad that you enjoyed the shelby all of these years.
I knew it was going to a good home when I sold it too you !!!!!
One of the true rare ones !!

I remember my aunt sent me a picture of the car from a newspaper article and I think a show you had it at.
Hope you invest wisely, was a pleasure doing business with you all those years ago.

Henry,

It was a pleasure to meet you, your son and 0078 at Indy in 2017. Sad to hear the car is gone, but look forward to anything you or the new owner would care to share about it in the future...

Thanks,
