Re: PC: NYC sharks that didn't make it to PC

If someone stole the hubcaps and owners manual from your '57 Chevy, would
you be so inclined to show it off anymore?  These sharks are privately
owned, and have been since the D&H sold them.   When that guy dies, things
will happen, but untill then they're in storage and they'll stay there.
