R&T, November edition

Arrived home today and the new Road and Track was waiting in the
mailbox. On the cover, the new TT. 

I've briefly read-over the article and it goes into much greater depth

about heading east in his newly restored 356. 

I will have a hard time ignoring this magazine tonight as I try to
finish my Economic Analysis problem...ooh the temptation.

This looks like a good issue to pick up if you don't subscribe to the
