Good eye, Justin! There at 5:23, then gone at 5:49 :)

Speaking of RV8, I saw one live & in person at the 32nd annual Springtime in the Smokies British car show in Townsend, TN this past Saturday.

The RV8 belonged to Terry McClain, who will be at Wytheville in June. BTY, He also has an XK8 Vert. Usually rooms next to us at Townsend show.

Yeah, he told me he would be in Townsend. It will be great to have an RV8 there.
