Cool Show and Shine event at Francelli's Coffee House in Victoria ....

Well, we finally licenced the GT/CS for the summer and have had it out for a couple of test runs this weekend. A local coffee house, Francelli's hosts a Show and Shine event every Saturday night so we drove over to have a look and park our GT/CS in the lot with the other cars. Had a look at their website photo gallery today and was pleasantly surprised to find three shots of our car listed there. Here is the link if you want to go and have a look at at some of their photos ....

Here are a few photos that I took. I love the vanity plate on the Cobra roadster replica ...

Thumbs up Plus some new friends from this forum ...

We also got to meet Bret and Pauline (sp?) from this forum at this event when they came over to look at our GT/CS, but I forgot to ask him what their forum name is .... (duh). They are looking for a '68 GT/CS to purchase and have been checking out leads on cars that have been listed for sale. Bret if you get a chance please send me an email with your contact info for future reference. We'll see if we can't help find you a '68 GT/CS. I might have a lead on a local car for you (not the red one that we discussed), but I will have to contact the long time owner to see if it is available for sale or not. It has been tucked away in storage in his garage for many, many years now and I'm not sure of it's current status. I'll give him a call and ask him if he is willing to part with it or not ...

Two notorious terrorists were nabbed today at the border between the US and Canada at the Blaine crossing. They both claimed to be US citizens but their muslim status was confirmed when one was heard referring to her vehicle as the "great Satan". The pair known as Amy and Rob were thought responsible for a series of cells from California to Canada and an internet communication scheme masking instructions to others in an internet forum.

Thumbs up

Yes, it's a great little show. Quite a variety of cars show up too as you can see from the photos. It's all very casual. Everyone just comes out to talk about their cars, polish the chrome, and have a great BBQ burger off the outdoor grill at Francelli's Coffee House. Nice folks at Francelli's and kudos to them for organizing and sponsoring this ongoing Saturday night get together ....
Is it really that tough to get a passport down there? Laurie and I didn't have any trouble getting our passports processed for some upcoming travel this year, but of course we weren't a couple of notorious criminals looking to "sneak" across the border either ....

If they release them from custody sometime soon maybe Amy and Rob could try and get across the border again!
