   Wiesbaden Oldtimer Rallye

Here's a picture for "Who we are and what we look like."  This picture is of me, my wife Theresa and my daughter Shannon.  It was taken in June at the "Wiesbaden Oldtimer Rallye," just before we took off for the all-day rally through the German Rhinegau and Taunus.  The rally is really fun- well-organized, good company, and a wide variety of cars from 1904 (Reo) to 1965 (Mustang convert).  I came in #40 out of about 200 cars.  Not bad for a rank amateur.  The Jag ran beautifully all day long - never missed a beat.
 


Here's my row at the "technical inspection" for the rally - in good company, as you may notice.


Here we've stopped for refreshments at the Henkell Trocken. The Henkell family are sponors of the event. Henkell makes a sparkling wine - a champagne, really - from Rhinegau white wine. Needless to say, the "refreshments" here were well worth the stop. This is one checkpoint I didn't want to miss!


And here we are on the last day of the Wiesbaden Oldtimer Rallye - the concours. This part was a drive-through in the park in back of the Wiesbaden Kurhaus - an elegant 19th century Casino that's been visited by royalty and notables since it was built. Dostoyevski was one of those visitors, and based on his rather miserable luck at the tables, he was inspired to write "The Gambler." As you can see, the Jaguar fairly sparkled!
