Looks like a perfect day for an AC cruise. I need to get mine out on the road again...

Mike the garage picture looks wallpaper/calendar worthy. Looks like you went to Oceanside?

Nice lookin' car Bill! Details on it?

Kalash, yeah, cruised Oside down to Del Mar along the coast, then inland to my buddies place in Poway. He's a guru of the highest order for restoring every type of VW made (air cooled ones) but specializes in Type 34 Ghias. The one at right (being restored) is the first Type 34 ever built. He found it in a field in AZ.

I drove that 356 in the pic... it was a one-owner car. Some lady in her 90s had it in storage in Maine. Pretty sweet car.

At the moment, I have an air cooled 996. As of tomorrow (new radiator install), that will no longer be the case.

Interesting side note: I ran into a friend at Cars & Coffee yesterday, who told me that he had just replaced that stupid little plastic coolant fitting on his 996 — the one that everyone breaks when replacing an alternator or oil fill tube. He used a brass hose-barb splicer from Home Depot. What is interesting is that he is convinced that his car runs a fair amount cooler after the repair than it did before.

He’s a pretty analytical guy, so I’m inclined to believe him. He had the old, broken fitting with him, and it definitely looks like it would be a choke point for coolant flow. Could be something, could be nothing — but interesting nonetheless.
