Went to Berkeley Cars n Coffee this morning in the GTV, and finally turned over the 1900 I've had for six months to its owner. Here's the dawn patrol fouling the bike lane, a capital offense in Berkeley.
Then at the event, parked next to Howie's red GTV, just painted, new engine, etc. Cars are roughly 300 numbers apart; I've had mine for three weeks, he's had his for 42 years, yet they look amazingly similar. Mine, more shopworn. Took it 100+ miles to Santa Rosa and back right afterward and zing, very smooth and quick. Many folks checked it out, even the old lady at the donut shop.
