Another great RTE !! The best part was my "Special" guest ... My middle Grand daughter Who has not been on the bike in over 1 year. You know how 16 year old girls are. I guess I'm cool enough in her eyes. :D The waitress asked her "How she got stuck with these guys". Her answer was (pointing at me) "thats my Grand Pa & I like riding on his Motorcycle". :dance:
Got to love an answer like that. Good to also get the chance to see Barretts new 911. Very nice Blue color that I have never seen on a Porsche.

Yep, that wuz a nice surprise to see you show up with Courtney. If today wuz her first time on the 1600, get ready for some phone calls asking for a ride!!! :D

You shoulda stuck around for Barrett's show and tell session with the Porsche Carrerra S Cabriolet!!! What a nice piece of machinery! I wanna go with him for his first service call - the shop does sumpthin' on the order of:

Car on the lift
Hook up special engine/drivetrain jack
Remove 6 bolts
Lower engine/drivetrain outta the car
Do the service
Engine/drivetrain goes back up into the car
Put back 6 bolts
Visit ATM kiosk in the waiting room!!! :histerica

Prolly not Ed Zachery like that, but similar. I would like to see the side-by-side twin driveshafts - howz dat work!!!

Anyway, thanks for hosting the breakfast, Stevie. Looking forward to the next one.

Funny, I got home and watched one of my favorite TV shows - Wheeler Dealers.

Big Ed was trying to work on a Lotus Elan. He said it's a pain in the butt to get to anything on the engine, so he just dropped the engine out and worked on it on his bench, then put it back in. Didn't look quite as elegant as what Barrett described, but necessity is a mother, no?

Wait a minute...if Stevie was the host, shouldn't he have bought everyone's breakfast?

Oh well, I guess he gets a pass because he was obviously in Grandpa Heaven this morning...as well he should have been. :thumb:

Hi !! I just wanted to thank everyone who came to breakfast last Sunday. I had a fun time riding with Stevie & it was good to meet his friends. There was SOOO much food I could not eat it all. I wanted to say how lucky I am to have Sammie & Stevie in my life. They are the best Grandparents EVER. Yesterday they bought me my first car. It is a 2003 VW Golf that is SOOO CUTE. Here is the only picture I have of it So Far. :D
ALL I can Say is THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
