Nice Milano, Great story !!!
It makes me happy to hear of great roadtrips, where people get to enjoy, and share the adventures. Sounds like your wife had a good time too..
Cool to hear about Woodstock,, I tried to hitch hike there for the Festival[I was very young], but couldn't get out of Maine- no one would stop for a couple of young Hippie/Biker/Rock and Roller's with a geetar and backpacks...
As a lot of you might expect,, I'll add a story[stop me if you'd heard it before].
I've been lucky enough to drive across the USA 3 1/2 times this year in GTV6's. Call me crazy[and I'm sure a few of you will !!] , But I would rather spend $1,000 bucks driving a car back, than $1,500 having it shipped !! Better deal, and a "vacation" thrown in for good measure.. Assuming all goes well. Well, a good tool kit and a good attitude help!!
I bought a cool blue GTV6 pretty much site-unseen on Craigs list, In North Dakota- so I got a great deal, 'cause like Maine, its a long way from anywhere.. I flew out, the guy picked me up at the airport, saw the car--- thankfully better than I had thought. Seemed like a good guy, sad though,,, the wife was forcing him to sell it. I assured him it would have a good time and go to a good home, and drove off.
Great car !! A previous owner had spent some money on performance and suspension mods- just enough to give it a good feel, and put some cool wheels and tires on it. I had a great time driving from N Dakota, to Chicago,, Where , of course, The National AROC Convention was in full swing !!!
Met a lot of excellent members of the BB, had a heck of a good time, made lasting friendships !!!
And to top it all off, I drove back to Maine with no probs and promptly sold the car to a good customer !! Yee Haa !!! A good time was had by me !!
