I didn't print out the May newsletter and now can't find it in my computer.
I want to come tomorrow, but don't know what time.

                "Demonstration Day" Rousing Success - Becomes Monthly Event Through October <>
                Jaguar Demo Day On Saturday, April 25th, we ran our first "Demonstration Days" featuring Jaguar. The response was so enthusiastic that we're now making Demonstration Days a regular event at the Museum on the 4th Saturday of each month through October. A crowd of almost 100 saw our D-type, C-Type and SS-100 Jaguars run flawlessly (thanks to John Longbottom who helped fire them up. Also, thanks to volunteers Phil Giannini, Valerie D'Angelo and Bob Malkin). Dr. Simeone gave a brief, informative talk on each car before he took them out for a run.
                 The next Demonstration Day is May 23rd at 12 Noon.
                The theme is "Ford Glory Days" and we'll be driving our GT40 Mk II, the Ford Mk IV and our Cobra Daytona Coupe. Hopefully we won't need it, but check our Web site for any rain dates.
                These Saturday events are included as part of the regular admission price and feature a discussion by Dr. Simeone about the cars being driven that day. Then we'll fire them up and you can hear them run! Full details and dates here. <>
                Own A Piece Of Automotive History
                You’re looking at the K-1 Attack: an award-winning ride that was built and raced by students on the West Philly Hybrid X Team.  Built as a hybrid supercar, it now runs on biodiesel.
                No stranger to competition, this visionary team has built and raced alternative fuel vehicles for the last 10 years. The team displayed the Attack at our Dedication last November, and even Mario Andretti was amazed at what these kids had accomplished.  
                The team is now gearing up to enter the international Progressive Automotive X PRIZE competition, where once again they’ll be tasked with designing a viable, clean, super-efficient car that people want to buy. But to finance their next car, they need to sell this one.
                It's currently for sale on eBay. Log on to eBay Motors and search for item #190306283553 <> , or "K1 Attack <> ." But hurry - the auction ends May 18. They’ve got the vision.  All they need are the funds. Put your bid in today!
                These Volunteers Don't Mind Getting Their Hands Dirty!
                Volunteers are vitally important to our operations - and no where more so than helping Curator Kevin Kelly with maintaining our cars. Recently Shop Intern Andrew Kelly (no relation), and Volunteers James Callahan, John Longbottom and Ben Gall have had their hands full getting the Jaguars and Fords ready for their Demonstration Days. (Kevin and Andrew are shown in the photo trying to figure out suspension settings on the Mk II.) In addition, they've been cleaning and repairing the gas tanks on the C-Type and Blower Bentley.
                "Thank You!" to these helpers, and to all our volunteers.
                Gift Shop Special Offer
                We just received a new shipment of Simeone Museum t-shirts Tshirtand we're going to be selling them for just $5 (normally $8) until the end of June.
                AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!!
                If you act before the end of June, we'll also include - ABSOLUTELY FREE - a copy of our 28-page Museum Program, chock full of text and photos of all the cars in the collection.
                We know you've been thinking about coming back to the Museum. Here's two good reasons. Please mention you saw this offer in the newsletter to get the special pricing.
