Post by peeeter »

Finally met Alvin! Great time cruising up and down Highway 9 with a beautiful sunset as always. Giving me serious seconds thoughts on selling the car...

Great meeting you Peter!
Hot summer evening in San Jose. Last Wednesday I met up with Peter and his 1967.5 SPL. We did a quick blast up Skyline. Chatted at the vista point until mosquitoes ambushed us. Loved the silver/red combo and JT Stainless (twin-pipe) exhaust.
Switched roadsters. It was refreshing to drive a stock 1600, and reminded me how cool these cars are.
Enjoy the pictures and video

Alvin, how do you manage to catch video while driving? Do you have a GoPro or something, just curious. Thanks :)

Great question I'm embarrassed to answer.
I use my iphone 99.9% of the time in every video you've seen me post from my roadster. I recently got a GoPro Hero black 7 that I used for a few clips in the video above. Don't laugh, but I failed to mount it to the car with a suction cup. I just held it. At around ~1minute in the video above you can see me holding it with my right hand via the mirror :mrgreen:

My intention with the drive was to have Peter "keep" it :mrgreen:
Exhaust sounds good and looks fantastic JT
