Part of the attraction of the 1600/2002 is that the cars seem to naturally generate stories wherever and whenever you drive them. Or work on them. Or think about driving or working on them. I know that telling and listening to 2002 stories occupies a great deal of time at any '02 gathering. And not only because we all have an interest in the same vehicle. It's as if the 2002 becomes part of the family and we must tell others about their good and bad behavior to rejoice or commiserate.
So, while @Chris_B's comment may have been tongue in cheek, I certainly can relate to and enjoyed your "Frisco" story and hope you continue to relate such adventures on the forum.
