one of the new car posters Robert made for Jacques of Jacques 1937 Figoni Falashi #676
Delahaye (Click here) That won "Best of Show" last August 2000 at Pebble Beach. In fact it is my framed
and signed poster given to me by Robert that is Pictured here above on the wall that Robert is going to mail
to me since we were not able to carry it on the plane ... (Update .. 9/12/10 .. am still waiting for Robert
to mail this to us ... grin)
Jacques and his brother Father Raymond
(a Catholic Priest, served 40 years in Africa) .... Hey that makes a great riddle! How can a person be your Father and your Brother at the same time? .... Jacques took Raymond, Becky and myself to their favorite local French restaurant .... it was a wonderful 4 hr experience! The best food we have ever tasted in our lives!
It was a pleasure to meet Stephane Poux (President of the De Tomaso Club De Fance) while at Retromobile where he was maning the De Tomaso Booth .... Especially since Becky and I own a 1973 Pantera L (click here) we bought new in Sacramento. My camera disk failed just then, so no other pictures than the one above ... the middle top is the prototype of the newest Pantera due out in 2002. It will cost $160,000 U.S. dollars. The one on the upper left is the one Stephane drives daily, I saw it parked out front here today.
