The SECRET Renault Alpine…

I met a good friend of mine and business partner yesterday for a lunch “thing” at Paradise Cove and he brought a car that he just finished putting together. This 1971 Renault Alpine Rally 1600. It’s a sweet tiny ride with 13″ rims, but enough power to get the job done. He said if you switched the Renault Logo and put a Stallion there, it’d be worth a million bucks. But as it is… it’s a worth some cash since you can’t find them anywhere. Maybe 3-4 in the states.

Spent some time going over it, had lunch (Hung out with Cillian Murphy from Batman Begins), then split. As I headed out of the parking lot, I saw my friend (Sal) stopped in a peculiar way at the traffic light. He was out of his car, writing. Some goombah clipped his corner panel in a Toyota truck trying to squeeze around him. Ouch…

But Sal was unnerved. He was gracious, which put the goombah at ease.

A good example of not falling in love with “things” too much. They’re just things and everything can be replaced.
