    Golly, is this ever a feel good thread.

    Just wonderful what you're planning for your Dad. And what a Dad to have!

    Please let everyone know what happens!

    Awesome pic, VWBug! I love it. Good luck. I hope you get not only a GM response, but many, many responses! What a great, thoughtful gift.

    To everyone who said GM would write back - you were right! The card came in the mail yesterday. He wrote a lovely (handwritten) message, remembering Dad as a top rider in his day. Then he wished him a happy 80th birthday, saying he wasn't far behind.

    I'm so happy - thanks COTH for all the encouragement!
