i've never riden pismo, always wanted to but never got the chance. how packed does it get?
I haven't been out there much lately. I took my time replacing the engine in the Bronco recently and haven't driven it much since. When I do go out it's usually to play in the sand (literally) with my 4 year old daughter.
I am planning on camping/playing in January with some out-of-towners and a few locals. I'll post details as they get worked out.
The Rizzolis are good people and their shop does good work. I write service at Supreme Automotive in Grover Beach and live in Arroyo Grande. I deal with the SLO shop from time to time (usually in search of Mercedes parts) and see one or two of the Rizzolis a couple times a year at ASC meetings.
Henry at Mufflers And More (a couple hundred yards down the street from the Santa Maria Rizzoli's) is a big fan of desert racing and regularly attends the Mexico races.
Congrats on the new job. Let me know if you need anything.
