Car sorted

Hi Guys

Just to let you know I have organised for The Limey Model T to be at the reunion, well with luck I am attempting to drive the old lady from Joplin MO to Richmond starting the 27th April, so if you see a lone Limey between these two points you know I started the drive and hope to finish in Richmond on 6th May, thnaks to everyone who offered help and a car for the reunion tour - look forewward to seeing you all in June

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(frankkwabena99@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
