Along with the Grand Sport Corvettes, the 2003 Amelia Island Concours featured the cars of Jim Hall.  It was the first time all of these cars had been together outside of the museum in Midland, Texas.  Interesting story, as I was looking at the cars with my family, an older gentleman came out with a folding chair and sat down next to one of the cars. I poked my wife, said, “I think that’s Jim Hall.”  I went over and he kindly signed my program as well as the back cover off a model of a Chaparral 2 I brought with me just in case I had the opportunity.  He’s a very nice guy, and told me his favorite car of the ones on display was the 2D.
