      Dust off your cars because it
      is only three weeks until the
      Gould's Eleventh Annual
      Microcar & Minicar Classic

      This year's event will be held
      on July 7, 8 & 9, 2006, in
      Newton (near Boston),
      Massachusetts, and we have a
      whole weekend jam packed with
      activities and treats for all
      who participate with, or
      without, a car.

      We have a "Seats & Asses
      Program" (SAP), so if you come
      without a car, we will find a
      seat for you, so that you can
      ride in the microcars to all
      activities and all events, all
      weekend long. This is a great
      opportunity for those of you
      who have been thinking about
      acquiring a Microcar, or those
      that are Microcar wanna-bees!

      We also have the "Gould's
      Certified Roadside Assistance
      Program" (CRAP), which means
      that we will have at least two
      tow vehicles with flatbed
      trailers, several extremely
      qualified mechanics, several
      spare containers of fuel (for
      those of you who are too
      preoccupied to heed our
      warnings to fill your tanks
      BEFORE the event) available for
      all tours, drives, and
      activities to solve even the
      most embarrassing of mechanical
      failures or complications. We
      have this down to a science and
      can accomplish retrievals
      within minutes, and can usually
      have you up and running in time
      for the next activity.

      This is also a grand
      opportunity to diagnose and
      repair that pesky problem that
      has eluded you for years!
      We have clear, concise, printed
      directions for all tours and

      We have emergency telephone
      numbers if you get lost or
      separated from the pack.

      We have negotiated a fantastic
      room rate ($89.00 per night) at
      the luxurious Sheraton Needham
      Hotel that is less than 1 mile
      from the Gould's residence.
      In order to get this fabulous
      rate, you must reserve your
      room by June 27, 2006, or they
      will charge their regular room
      rate of $189.00 per night.

      We have each of the following
      activities packed into this
      chaotic weekend, so you will
      not be bored or idle for even a

      We have a Friday Evening Wine,

      food from all over the world,
      including everything from Tuna
      Sashimi to Enchiladas, and
      supplemented by the world
      famous menu from Blue Ribbon
      Barbecue, which is a venerable
      feast for carnivores.

      Parker's wonderful Paper
      Microcar CD's, and many, many
      more delightful things to buy
      for yourself or as gifts.

      In addition to all of the
      fabulous Microcars & Minicars
      which will attend this year, we
      will be joined by the local
      Nash Metropolitan Club (Yankee
      Mets) and the New England Mini
      Owners Group (NEMO), so there
      will be plenty of Mets and
      Minis as well as Met and Mini
      souvenirs for sale in the shop.
      I also make exceptions for any
      interesting cars, so if you

      interesting, I can be persuaded
      (or bribed).

      We have hosted this event for
      eleven years now, and it has
      become an incredible
      phenomenon. This is a "European
      Style Driving Event" with many
      tours, lots of great food,
      drink, camaraderie, and social
      interaction. It is not some

      show on an asphalt parking lot,
      where we sit for six hours and
      answer questions about our
