Dear Jim:
If you will recall we met several years ago back in Flint when my wife and I had the honor through the efforts of Bob Wilson to attend the anniversary dinner for the Corvette Club. It has been a great pleasure to read about your continued persistence and efforts to return General Motors to greatness; and my great grandfather, Billy Durant, would certainly be proud and honored by your passion and knowledge of the automobile industry. There is no doubt in my mind that if he were alive today, you would be his first candidate for his Board of Directors. Keep up the good work and let me know how I can contribute to your vision for the future of GM.
