I came home around 11:00 a.m. today to pick up my son and change cars to the beast. I had to delivery books to a class in Ventura. Our first stop was the DeLorean mechanic in Garden Grove. There we met the last authorize mechanic in the U. S. of A. for the DeLorean. He had maybe 10 to 12 cars. One was a copy of the car from “Back to the Future”. He told us his mechanic had spent 3 years making it. Wow, it had everything on it. The lights, the thing on the back, and the stuff in the interior were all done great. My son, who is 6’ 4”, sat in it and was able to drive it. I am planning to buy him a DeLorean 8) as a college graduation present.
After driving up the coast via PCH to Ventura from Santa Monica, we dropped off the books. Next, we stopped at the “Auto Gallery” in San Fernando Valley. There my son saw a Porsche Cheyenne. His comment was it looked like a frog. After a closer look, he was right. It does look like a frog. :-?
We walked into the showroom and there was a Porsche Carrera GT. It has a V-10 in it. The salesman shows us the car. Very interesting it was. He said they had an offer at $575,000 but said no
to it. It is a great looking car.
I did see one problem. There are large scopes behind the front wheel, which would throw stones onto the door panel. Unless the owner is someone like me, he will be upset at the clips on the door.
As we were leaving a red 360 was in front of us. The plates were from Tennessee. The driver told me he had 66,000 milers on it. I told him that was great. :green:
After having a wonderful dinner, my son and I were off to the Disney Concert Hall for a night of music. As I was about to turn into the parking lot, a cloud of white steam enveloped
my car. I pulled into the front of what I thought was a hotel. The woman gave me a fire extinguished and I put on a small fire in the engine compartment.
I think a water hose broke causing the engine to over heat and ignited something in the engine. I had it towed to my friend Larry in Orange from downtown LA to Orange, about 50 miles. It is sitting all alone behind Larry’s garage tonight.
He will be surprised when he comes to work in the morrow.
Tomorrow I will see what the problem is.
As my son just said, “Today was an interesting time.”
