'67 Goat Therapy
There are days when it's just a sheer pleasure to own and drive this thing!
I live in the Wine Country of Northern California (Santa Rosa, to be exact). Every few days I have occasion to pop over into the upper Napa Valley into the town of Calistoga, for business. Yesterday, I had to make such a trip and decided it would be a great day to take my '67. The day was beautiful (low 80*s) and the sky was crisp and clear. I called my dad (now 71) and asked if he wanted to ride along, as my wife was at work and I thought dad might want to get out of the house.
The road over the hill is twisty, rough in parts, smooth in other parts, partly wooded, sparsely inhabited and all in all a really nice drive. I gotta say and so would my dad... What a GREAT car! Regardless of age, this car is incredible. I just can't believe there are no squeaks, rattles, pops, klunks or wierdnesses of ANY kind. Doesn't pull at all, stops on a dime and of course the torque makes it fun as hell! Just a complete and utter joy to drive!
I've been dealing with a chronic illness of late and am hopeful to be on the mend, the therapeutic value of driving this car can't be overstated to me. The bonus was getting to spend some time with dad.
When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
