(sorry can't do pvt msgs yet)

If Cam wants to grab the article for the Sun/Province, I'd still love to do it for somebody else I write for: Hooniverse, Road & Track, Autos.ca - let me know, I have an Aussie editor who is beside himself to hear the story. Let me know if you're going to come down the CCA Christmas thing or what-have-you. Cheers!
