GP: "I drove the winners in ‘59 and ‘60. I believe Nancy won in ‘60. I can’t recall the girl I drove in ‘59. She lived in West Granville on North Lane. Don’t believe she was in town too long."

VS: "It may have been Araina Brown Heath."

GP: "That’s who it was. Thanks."

DJC: "I believe my aunt Bonnie Blakesley King won a year or two."

MPR (to GP): " I’d forgotten you drove those winners in your convertible. Maybe your parents took pictures too."

MPR: "My sister and I are in there. I don’t want to name any others in case they don’t want to be identified."
