RustyButTrusty On The Street – 2013 Melee Sendoff

September 7, 2013

Okay, it’s going to be hard to lie about this, because even in San Francisco you won’t ordinarily see a Peugeot 203 and a Hudson Hornet within spitting distance of each other. Although the other day, a Citroen H-van and a McLaren MP4-12C were going the other direction on 101 within a few minutes of each other… Anyway, car events can be a great family outing. And such was the case with the Melee sendoff – even if the RustyButTrusty Alfas are too new to qualify, and the BMW is likely too common, there’s no restriction on who attends the sendoff or what car brings you there.
