My 2-year drought has come to an end and I am once again behind the wheel of an X1/9. It’s a different experience this time around because it’s not like I have any time these days to wrench on this nor do I have a burning desire to even work on it myself….. More of an opportunity cost of passing on a good deal, I suppose. Weird. But anecdotal, anyway, I have been observing these cars on the rise in terms of value and I figured one day I would want another so I figure to capitalize on today’s prices.
Blah blah….ok, I admit, I miss these little cars.
So another adventure has ensued; my wife and I having flown down from SF to OC to pick up the 85 Bertone JJ was selling. After catching up with Mary and Emma over a scrumptious dinner, we did the deal and settled in for a rest before heading back north tomorrow. We are planning on taking the 101 route back after a pit stop at the DMV to take care of the paperwork.
So far, it’s a nice ride…I’ll be working on a plan for how the rolling restoration will proceed in the coming days after seeing what happens between the drive from OC to SF…..
