Pre-view of Spud

Charlie in Santa Cruz helped and replaced with another new caliper and it failed also. Eventually we determined it was the Master Cylinder and Charlie changed it for me. My daughter drove it back to San Diego and took a newer gas car up instead. Sometime it is difficult to maintain a 29 years old car when it is 500 miles away. I have been touching her up since it is here. It is a 1 owner car with everything works but relatively high mileage, 357K miles. Original paint and firm seats and no crack on dash. A/C, cruise all work, keyless entry, new radio etc. It is a nice looking car and have not given me any trouble except the brakes.

I should be driving it to the meet. I have got another 'Arctic', white SDL you have not seen yet. It is in the process of 'restoration' but I just do not have the time to get it done.
