Busy weekend

Busy weekend full of automotive madness. Saturday morning went over to my cousin Eric's to tune up his new 74 Ghia that I helped him find a couple of weeks ago. Eric was surprised how well it ran post tune up. We changed, plugs,wires, adjusted valves,timing,so on and on, even degreased engine. Saturday night helped support my buddy Ern Torres' son's school Barnhart Academy, Arcadia. He helped organize a fundraising car show that a few friends attended. Walt was there with the 49 chop top pictured, I took my Daughter in the 70 911T. Woke up Sunday morning and had coffee in La Canada with Early 911S Registry.
