I just picked up one of those Gran Turismos, NOS.

I liked seeing them in the display case back when, sitting next to the one I coveted, the small alloy job with the stippled body and pearly glow, but the big old touring clunker with the massive chromed pulley cages always held a place in my heart, perhaps because it reminds me of that old bike shop. Even back then we knew it was a lousy performer. But it has its appeal, and makes one heckuva paperweight. Ah ...nostalgia.
