Hi. I've been remiss on keeping my roadster on the road, and it is time 
to fix this.  It's been 4 or 5 years . . .
It's last nap of more than a year ended when I had someone replace the 
clutch and also tidied up a bunch of other things it needed, back in 
2001 or so.  That worked out so well, with the car running beautifully 
afterwards that I'd like to do it again.  If only I remembered who did 
it. . .  If I had better records and/or brain I'd know who it was and 
have contact info but I know I can ask this list who will of course be 
able to figure it out. I have a receipt but it doesn't show a name or 
contact info.

It was someone in Lake county who came and towed my car back to their 
shop, did his magic, and then brought it back (or maybe I went and 
picked it up?).  I was in Alameda at the time.  For a bonus: I've since 
moved to Sebastopol, so it is a much shorter commute.  I understand that 
this was 19 years ago, but we are all crazy (in a good way) on this list 
and the likelihood of them still playing with our little cars is pretty 

It ran when I parked it (yeah right, everyone says that... but for real 
here).  Now it (at least) needs the hydraulics and fuel system/carbs 
wrung out, probably some more as well. And I need to get it new tires 
before it can be moved around at all, 2 are flat/rotted and all are 
showing cracking.

Thanks all!
