|"It begins with our local Rotary club, which puts on an annual art
show. Ken Smith, a fellow member of the club, has run the show for
the past two years. Some of the entries are miniatures, so I figured if
anybody could put me on to someone who could do my little job, Ken would
know of them.
So I phoned Ken, got about halfway through my story, when he said,
"Wait a minute, I'll put you on to Maryann" (his wife). Ken is a retired
schoolteacher and looks the part - mild mannered, soft spoken and scholarly,
so you would never guess that for many years, his wife was pit boss at
the local sprint car races. She in turn knows a a guy who builds
miniatures: trains, buildings and of course 'customised' sprint cars.
So I called him and he not only did the job, but wouldn't take a penny
He of course worked from the picture on your web site and for a freehand
job, I think it looks pretty good. He even managed to get the PSCC
(Pacific Sports Car Club) lettering on to the little shield. The framed
photo from your web site now resides behind the model and is my pride and
joy. I only wish Bob was around to see it.

You never know who might turn up after all these years!
