A Fond Goodbye
While I was in Taos my little '69 Karmann Ghia went back to California on a transport - sold to a collector and Ghia/Porsche enthusiast who will love it at least as much as I did. I bought it used when I was 17 and we have traveled many miles together.
A one-painter car, and not suited to dirt road driving, or hauling art - I made a very hard choice this Spring to finally sell it; something I never thought I would do - but it was time.
I used to wonder how anyone would NOT want to drive a convertible; it was always a California car and I am happy to know that it is going back there.
In the end, I realized the multiplication of my original investment by 10 fold and was able to purchase a beautiful Toyota pick-up. I can't be too sad; still. . . .
my husband saw the Ghia put on the truck - I am glad I wasn't there.
