OHHHHHhhhh..I got meine Liebe, back. Complete with new clutch, seal and linkage-y bits. IT DRIVES LIKE A WHOLE NEW CAR. UNBELIEVABLE. It can't WAIT to pull out, and this new clutch..it's like learning to drive all over, again. It LEAPS out - and there were a couple sort of 'burning rubber' incidents, on the way home. Heh. This area is a foothold of loyal, mostly insane Dubbers - and now? When they rev their engines next to me at a stoplight? Mama can give 'em a little lesson.
So much love.( Read more... )
While talking to Adam - a good egg, and the grandson of the nicest man, ever - at http://www.hausersauto.com/index.html
- we talked about the Aigner edition Cabriolet that they'd had for sale, a couple years ago. It was a thing of exquisite beauty - being of the Midnight Blue variety - and my son and I literally piled in the car at one am. to go drool over it, when he first told me about it. It was almost My Dream Car ™ - but sadly, it was an automatic
...Even MORE sadly, Adam told me that the car had been sold to a kid that utterly destroyed it.
A true crime..a true tragedy.
He said the kid was now trying to sell it BACK to them, and when my eyes lit up, he assured me that it was NOT worth it, as it would take way too much work to get it on the road. :(
Rest in peace, beautiful:
