Recently I was trawling my extensive photo library, and filed in an obscure folder I found this quite wonderful memory from the last Concours I attended at Amelia Island in 2006, the year I retired from Bentley Motors North America.

I sent the photo on to Amelia Founder, Chairman, and my good friend, Bill Warner. I will post his response below, and bittersweet the memories were too.
