Under the Yum Yum tree

I went for a coffee with mate Warren to Hardy's Bay this morning and parked under the "Yum Yum " tree opposite the Yum Yum Cafe. A bird shat on the car but at least the car was cool.
Warren has been restoring his 911 Targa for going on two years. He has done almost all the work on the car including the painting -apart from the rebuild of the engine/transmission and the upholstery- and he has done an excellent job. The body is now finished. It should be going upto Autowerks in Charmhaven next week where the engine and gearbox are almost ready to be fitted.
There is a book - The Gold Plated Porsche- which describes the trials and tribulations of a costly rebuild of a 911 of similar vintage to Warren's. Warren can probably now write the sequel- The Platinum Plated Porsche.
The new year should see Warren's car parked under the Yum Yum tree.
