...and it's all Tino Perrina's fault. There we were, going to have an innocent lunch somewhere within walking distance of FOS. While we were checking out the cars hiding in the basement we got to talking about the Challenge Stradale that had been discussed on this board formerly owned by thomas_b and Tino told me the long and involved story that ultimately involved the car being repaired to as new condition albeit with a rather herculean effort from the FOS service department. A happy ending. We happened to walk by the car in question as it was in the back lot still awaiting final prep before whatever happens to it next happens. I was transfixed on the car with full tunnel vision/hearing engaged and like a voice from heaven I though I heard "You want to drive it? Why don't we run over to Mercer Island for lunch instead?" I snapped back into reality and looked around to see who could be playing such a mean trick on me, but instead all I saw was Tino going back inside to get the key from whatever vault it is stored in. Needless to say, this was far and away the best lunch I have ever had even though I cannot recall what I had to eat. Do I even need to describe what driving this car is like? Its everything you think it might be and about 10 more. 10 more what, you say? Well, 10 more of whatever insanely perfect thing you can think of. Tino if you have your ears on... thanks again. You made my day. Week. Month. Year. Decade.
