[Saloon-lovers] an important Jag event, and no typo in the cost!

Hi everyone…

I’m writing to let you know that the 2001 Jaguar Roadrunner 1000 classic car
rally will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico September 18 through 23 of this

The Jaguar Roadrunner 1000 is an affordable classic car event designed to
offer almost as much as the more expensive car events across the United
States but at a fraction of the cost. We are looking for enthusiasts who
would like to drive and show their cars without taking a second mortgage on
the house, and Northern New Mexico offers fantastic fall colors and
panoramic vistas bisected by enjoyable twisty roads. Add to this the lure
of spicy New Mexican food and the colorful intertwined history of Native
American, Anglo-Saxon, and Spanish settlers, and you have an event which is
not to be missed. If you have a pre-1977 car you love and want to share,
and if you have a competitive nature and want to win serious prizes, then
this is the event for you.

Overlaying the event is a tribute to the new breed of cat � the great new
cars of Jaguar. Melloy Jaguar of Albuquerque and Jaguar North America are
sponsoring much of the event, which includes a car show on the Santa Fe
Plaza the morning of September 23, judged by classic car luminaries such as
Ken Gross, former curator of the Peterson Auto Museum in Los Angeles, and
Dennis Little, former chief of design for Cadillac. Shining examples of the
new Jaguars will be on display on the Santa Fe Plaza during the show.
Additional sponsors for the event include Haggerty Classic Car Insurance and

Well-known race driver and author Denise McCluggage lives in Santa Fe, and
she has personally designed the driving tours for the event. The main
competitive portion, The Luigi Vercotti Rally, will take rallyists through
the streets of Santa Fe and on the road to Taos. It will be a
question-and-answer event - one drivers and navigators won�t soon forget.
Lunch will be served at the world-famous Rancho de Chimayo Restaurant in
historic Chimayo, located in the shadow of the historic Santuario de

The winner of the Luigi Vercotti Rally wins a trip for two to Las Vegas,
