To start our tour Dan's Chevelle wouldn't start after lunch just 5 miles from joining the tour at the Chattanooga stop. I went to the site ahead to find help and found that they have medics to fix any problem within reason.

Terri Waddell attended South Cobb High School, class of 1985. After purchasing a 1969 Camaro, she painted it pink to match a feather she had. So thus, the Pink Lady was born. Back then, more people knew Terri as ‘Pinky’ and the car as ‘Spoiled Brat’. Terri had a lot of issues with the car, as you would expect.

Confessions of a Motor Head, The Incredible Chase

Authors note. I wrote this story back in the late 80's Interestingly enough You can Actually Follow this whole route Via Google maps ground view.

Over looking the San Francisco Bay right above Berkeley California runs Grizzly Peak Boulevard. At the top of the twisty road is a walled overlook just below the peak. The view from there is inspiring to say the least, facing west, directly ahead is the Golden Gate. Vistas unfold before you to all corners of the bay.
