Tere's photo of this weekends car shows

Replica of a '33 Riley, terrific owners, they said the only original parts are the huge headlights

An XK SS, and those are very rare. You probably knew already that Steve McQueen had one, and about a dozen were built before a fire at the plant destoyed the machinery and parts to make more
The most beautiful front of any car I can think of. Style and great proportions... just marvelous.

After the Jag concours show we went over to the Main Street America show, Corvette club

Unrestored, original, and formerly raced. Hank has loved this car a long time
This Cobra is worth about 1.6 million US dollars. Standing offer for the past 10 years is 1.5

Restified with 550 or so HP, and 600 or so ft/lbs to the rear tires, with 3.23 gears and 5 spd od
