We lost a good one a couple of days ago.
Tom Silver, whose 1965 Mustang was always a top attraction at Targa Newfoundland and at other vintage car rallies across North America, has passed away, following a bout with cancer.
I still can't make hyperlinks work in this blogging software, but if you cut-and-paste the following into your browser, it should take you to his obituary in the Duluth (Minnesota) News Tribune. If you wish, you can register on that site and post a comment which I assume his family will eventually see.

Tom was a wonderful gentleman, a tough but fair competitor, and truly represented the spirit that events like Targa Newfoundland - and all classic car rallies - strive to exhibit.
He will be missed.
