Default Powerboat Twin Towers Poster

Cleaning out the closet over the weekend and found the poster Powerboat put out after the 9/11 attacks showing a APBA(?) race in front of the twin towers. If memeory serves, I think Popeyes and Drambui are visible in the pic. It is new in the tube it was mailed in. Forgot I even had it. I would like for someone from the New York area to have it if anyone has any interest. Just PM your information and I will mail it out to you.

Thanks to all that responded. To make it fair, Tom A. was first to respond according to the time posted in PM so I will be sending it out to him.
