    Congrats Arash; I know you will do well.

    How about Calaveras Road for a good detour?

    Or if it's really been a bad day, there's always Mt. Hamilton...:D

    65' Le Mans rebadged to be a "GTO." I put 300K on it in 27 years. It was a wonderful machine, loved it! No pics excepting a lookalike:

    Yikes, cable unwinding itself. Yep, replacement time. Can you get a choice of stainless vs. the standard cable? If it were me, I think I'd replace ALL control cables for no other reason than the age...
