Let's bury the Sord

Hey, people......I think this broo haha simmering over something that happened in 1947, 1958, 1997, 1997, 2006, 25 years ago and even last month is absolutely shameless. I went to collage too and can't remember my first blue book exam or the correct order of the periodic tables...I faintly recall the Iron Oxide cimbal as Ru for Rust. I do member doing Janet under the lab table when we did the highly explosive combination of dried ice in a beaker of water. It was a perfect smoak screen to our discovery of the meaning of life.

Anyway, back to the thread....I think we need to give Stu a little slack and a nod for maybe poor judgemint. I think we've all been in his shoes. Maybe after each of youse guys read the website attached in full youse will have a better depreciation for where he is coming from. If you have trouble comprehending the depth of the site, I resemble you. Many thanks for your listening to just a reglar cup of coffey in the world of latttie. Rick

But you repeat yourself and each time it makes no more logical sence than last time you sputter and spout it. Wake up man. You don't mind paying after the fact for your mistaken use of the Tonkin bus, but you decline the same mistaken use of the Concourse? Likewise at a brunch or two. You are a total contradiction from one end to the other. If nothing is said about vendors, what makes you think it was something you could simply invent and do? I could be wrong, but I believe sponsors and not vendors were invited to use commercial space at the concours. Then again, I would logically assume it was not a general offering, thus not mentioned. Do you always just move in? Please don't set up in my driveway, just to make that clear! I know its all about you, but you are not to ever take up residence in my garage, pump house or living room either. GEEZ!

Maybe you just don't understand the law. The concours was a PUBLIC EVENT, and anyone has the right to do what they want at a public event, as long as it doesn't violate the law!

It is MY LEGAL CHOICE to "move in" or not at ANY public event!!! Your driveway is NOT a public place, hence you would have every right to have me arrested if I set up there.

Dead wrong. The event did not take place on public property with unrestricted access. The cars had to be registered and so did the vendors.

The only reason I am "quoting" this post is so that you can't go back and modify it... How incredible it is to read that someone who professes to have three PhDs, from Cambridge nonetheless, could think that anyone has a legal right "to do what they want" or "move in", not to mention to set oneself as a vendor... I would love to see you explain this to a judge.

Time to leave "stupid is as stupid does" alone...

Why do we continue to waste time debating with Stu?

It is summer, and we should all be playing with our cars and projects. Or with our families, friends, and extended circles of friends. Life is too short to spend it dealing with those who complicate our lives.

Stu received the car that I was instructed to hold until his check cleared. Now that the transaction is over, I have no expectations to encounter or interact with him, as our paths will unlikely cross again.

Time to press the ignore button, online and in person.

First, be sure you are abylone; you want it all to yourself. Then, make sure it is dead. The rest is easy.

Smile Anybody take photos of concours?

Can you guys just get done with all the drivel and post some photos of the car at the concours. I did see the 2600 from Vancouver and believed it special. Can you imagine he and Tubot drove that car down and back? But I was there only for the time trials with Tom who drove a tz that Sterling Moss used to own. It was NOT in the concours, nor were the 8c2600 Monza of Novolari or even my resprayed two liter. Sorry I couldn't see everything, but Tom had to go to the Mission BC vintage races too on Friday.

Stu, please desist on your comments about the convention. It's over, and it was great. I wish I had stayed there so I could have calmly paid for the various events for you. I had hoped you would not try to slip in without making those payments so necessary to cover costs of the local club that had to put on the event and HAVE NOTHING TO DO WHATEVER WITH THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE NATIONAL. So, please do not continue making people dislike you. We need your comments on the BB when it comes to history of Alfa vehicles. I am very grateful to you for proving good (almost priceless) information most of the time, at least a good point to start checking. You do not have to comment on every post made by everybody, however. Remember the old Latin maxim: "Si tacuisset, philophus permansisset" (if he had just shut, he would always have been considered a philospher). NOT ONE MORE COMMENT.

SOME PICTURES PLEASE . . .

We tried, most of mine already posted, but some troll keeps ringing the danged dinner bell.


I for one would love to see not one more word from him, but he can enter the oven if he wishes.
