Just drove my Targa up to Vancouver, WA for safe-keeping for now. We're selling our SF house in May, and needed to get it out of my garage. Not sure where we will end up in the PNW, but Vancouver is fine for now.

 

11-hour drive, and not a blip of a problem. I'm always amazed and thankful for what this great little car still has in it. Stellar drive up 5. We're in the Bay Area until mid-June...

This thread is just so full of awesomeness!!   B)

 

@jgerock, is that actually a real ti ?
And furthermore, is it Caribe or Riviera blue ?

 

@otto, even though I'm a RRL kinda guy, I must confess that your Mint green SRL looks thoroughly 70's yummy...

Guess I better contribute too then...

Paul,  You will be missed in the Bay Area!!!  Your knowledge, insight and willingness to help is what I love about this community.  Thank you for all your guidance over the years! I would not be a proud 02 owner today if it was not for you.   It's sad to see that the car is already gone.  You will certainly need to hang onto that license plate! :)

Bryan, wow. What a kind and thoughtful soul you are. We go way, way back, and you, my friend will be missed as well. 

 

I still have fond memories of hanging out last May at your uber-cool Mini Car Show. Deschodt's shot from that day is probably my favorite photo ever of my car. Thanks, Deschodt. Well done.

 

Bryan, hope to see you at the Swap & Show. I'll be carless for once...

You bet I'll see you at Brisbane.  I'll also have to drag you back for the Coleman International Car Show, now in it's second year and better than ever.  It's set for May 21st, at Coleman Elementary in San Rafael.....  (Shameless plug...  ;))

Returning from MidAmerica, Darrin, JP and I stopped in Sulphur Springs, Texas for lunch... they have a beautiful courthouse and town square.
