As if the car weren't cranky enough...

The local Peugeot enthusiast club somehow caught wind of our project. They took umbrage at our goal of removing a fine French automobile from the street and ruining it on a race track. They were angry enough that the entire membership showed up outside the shop to protest (see picture) they refused to leave unless we promised to restore the car to its former glory as a yard ornament. We were offended and refused outright. Eventually around 4:00 they grew bored (or possibly forgot why they were in someone elses driveway) and toddled off to Denny's to catch the early special off the Honored Citizens menu.

I suspect those eyesore guys tipped them off.

I hope they don't come back. Initially I though they were harmless, then Alan said he saw one of them using a calculator. That's when I got worried.

I saw that. It wasn't a calculator. It was one of those big hearing aids you used to see in the 70's.
