The name of the place is Garcia's Foreign Car Clinic. He is open 5 days a week (semi retired) and his number is 530-842-5516. He was thrilled to hear his place made it all the way out to GA.

I have just been by there as well on my way up to Medford, OR. I remembered loving that place. I actually looked it up on the web and found nothing, so I called a local wrecker service. He gave me the name and number of the place. I called and talked to the owner. He was pleased to hear from me all the way out in GA.

Kind of on topic. Coming home from the above mass sighting, a white minivan stayed beside me and Bob down a long stretch of hwy. Not exactly sure where we were, but I think it was Dallas Hwy maybe. At a redlight, they asked me if there was a bug show today. I told them "not really a show, but a gathering". They said "oh cool, we have a 65". I wanted to point them to the website, but the light changed and I never stopped next to them again. Maybe someone on here knows them. It was a white minivan with some stickers on the back window.

I've been driving my car a lot lately. I need to make up some Business cards to hand out when I meet folks just like the ones Eric encountered. As a matter of fact today while my car was sitting in the church parking lot a member placed a card in the window telling me about a car group comprised of other "Car Crazy Folks". I had been thinking about the cards for a while. Nothing professional, just off the home printer.
Later

Thanks Jerome for having us over and thanks votwing for the pics!

I saw the guy in his yellow ghia at Walmart about months back. I had to go up and tell him what a sweet ride he has. A very nice guy and willing to talk.
