I have not seen the picture but have been talking with a couple of gentlemen who contacted me with V.V. Cooke memorabilia and one talked about this and a few of the other V.V. Cooke race Vettes. One selling for over $1M I was told.

Also got an offer to bring our car back to the original V.V. Cooke building and do a photo shoot inside (if it is still empty then). That would be pretty cool. Need to trailer it to Canonsburg and do the same thing there.

The amount of help and offers to help we have received from people is amazing. People are coming out of the woodwork with stories and rare items.

That's called karma, Rick. Like I said on the phone, you and Annie deserve all of it!!
