"Forty thousand headmen couldn't make me change my mind" Traffic

But maybe fifty thousand could.

That how many "hits" this site has experienced since I began posting my journey pre-transplant.

Yesterday the 50,000th visitor lay their eyeballs on this blog.

I warned it would be a long haul on a mountainous road but I had hoped the fog would have cleared by now.

At least the breaks are still good, and I like the feel of the standard transmission. Gives me more control, and if you been with me for even a few miles, you know what a control freak I am.

Alright now. Here's a moment for silly diversion. What car does your mind's eye see this blogger coaxing up the hills and around the blind corners? Send me your vote as a comment.

See you at 1,000,000 visits. And the thousands of pit stops on the way.

Life is a journey.

Karmann Ghia, indeed. I well remember driving one in Newfoundland in the early 1970. A very fine choice of transportation along that rocky coast.

If you met one new person a day, 50k translates to almost 137 years of hand shaking! Wow, what leverage the internet brings!

A 1977 911 S Targa. Mild but a good handler. Five speeds and great breaks!

Brain, I saw Dave Mason do 40,000 H.M. a few months ago. We danced like Devishs with new blood. And we saw you driving home in peace with a smile on your face in a 64 ford falcon wagon. A white one in great shape...Happy New year Doc..

Here's one more image to wrap your brain around:

I see you driving with the top down in a 1932 Deisenberg (It's a duzzie)
Hang in there...........
