In October a group of AAE "old boys" gathered in Freiburg, Germany to celebrate old times.  In 1995 we negotiated a partnership between AAE, SAB Wabco, and GATX.  The partnership had some good years, evolved over time, and  eventually ended. But the friendships made during those years have endured.  And we occasionally enjoy getting together and doing what we do best, enjoy each others' company and drink good wine.
