Another sweet little car to catch my eye at the Birdwood Classic was this dear little Opel GT, still with its California number plates and the plate surround declaring "Sonoma Valley, where great wines begin". The Sonoma region, only 45 miles from SF, is indeed a premier wine area and I noticed on Jane's blog only last week that she was relaxing at home in Santa Cruz, after a busy day, with a glass of Sonoma Valley wine. The sticker on the left hand rear window says "Wombat Racing, Australia". I imagine the owner having been an ex-pat Aussie over there. Here, there wouldn't be a need to include the word "Australia" on such a sticker - or to explain the references to "eats roots, shoots and leaves".
