I may have been one of the unnamed gentlemen to whom you refer; black
polo shirt with the Celis Brewery logo and the pearl white '89 90Q.
It was a pleasure to meet the few enthusiasts that I did. I didn't go up the
hill for the first run, and opted not to go up in the afternoon, since I wanted to
beat some of the traffic and get to my dad's camp in Ossipee on Sunday PM.
I left without meeting many other Q-listers and before getting my t-shirt.
BTW, that black S4 license plate read "CAMRA-1". I was curious to know
if the owner was a member of CAMRA (the CAMpaign for Real Ale).
Humorous incident: I was under the tent (out of the gawdawfully hot sun) where
Byrnes Audi were displaying many beautiful new Audis. They had been set up
there since Friday. Someone wanted a look under the hood of an A8, so the
sales critter popped open the hood and took a few steps back. Seems a mouse
found the top of the A8's engine an irrisistable place to build a nest with grass
clippings. I joked that the car had an annoying squeak and at last they knew why.
The sales critter replied that there was no squeak and that the car was a joy to
drive. Jeez, save the sales pitch for someone who doesn't already own an Audi.
Well, this is my official delurking note; I've been here for a few months taking it all in,
and have already gotten much good advice. Nice to be here. Happy motoring to all!
