|The Pick Up|
We showed up at his shop, Motor Pro Garage, in Berkeley and talked to him. The car was there but there was still a couple of things left to do including the final emptying out of all the stuff, something I helped with. He was in the middle of installing a new V8 in a Jag XKE 2+2 (that had been converted long before) and still had lunch to go. We needed to check in anyway and drop off the rental. We went and did our thing and hung out at the hotel. The phone rang at about 3:45 and it was Jaan, he was downstairs. He had come in the car and as we drove to his house in Piedmont he explained a few things. He drove with enthusiasm and it was apparent that he loved the car. We made it back to his house and dealt with paperwork. With Marshall stacks against the wall and cases of guitars on the floor it was only appropriate that the receipt was written on a BMI music release form. He showed me some of the other stuff around the house as well as some of the parts that would be mine as soon as I had a vehicle that would haul them back. Included in this list was the old thermal reactor, a collection of different sway bars, and other things that wouldn't fit in the trunk.
