Twenty-one members showed up for breakfast at the "Breakfast Inn"; we were all able to sit at one table and our waitress, Usura, took great care of us and here is taking Brad Reed's order.
Then we convoyed to Richard Gordon's house for the tour. His basement contains his Austin- Healey model collection with more than 1,200 nicely displayed. Lots of other AH related items including posters, banners, clothing, etc.; an amazing collection. Here Richard tells one of his "400" stories to Vernon Hill and Liz Reed.
The group then went to his garage and looked at his AH 3000, a 64 MB coupe, a Volvo P-1800 and a couple of other cars. Richard does most of the restoration needed and only farms out for paint and upholstery. Here Andy DeVisscher and Jeff Heller admire his 3 bay garage with a lift in each as Richard describes some of his work.
We finished by looking at his beautiful Tesla Model S85 electric car. It's the 85 kWhr battery pack model which gives it a range up to 260 miles on a charge.
Thanks to Richard for a delightful tour.
