Nice shots Ted, I enjoyed looking at them. The T-bird brings back memories and there were plenty of these running around when I was a kid.

I think I need that 1955 Siata 300 BC Sport Spider Ted. It'd look good on me..

Ken, it's a beautiful classic design. But you will need to be small - I've seen larger insulated boots than that Siata.

Ken, the line is behind me...... I never liked the MG midget but not because of its size. This little bugger looks right.

My brother reminds me that it was a 326 CID, not a 389. Nevertheless it was quick. The only problem was that for some reason I never got more than about 15K miles out of a set of tires. Very puzzling.

That car was called KITT and had way more power than mine. But radial ply tires (tyres for you ) weren't common back then. Even my car could out-drive the bias-ply tires it had, and for people who did that the results tended not to be good.

I lived in So California (Orange county, Huntington Beach) 1962-1974 and owned (bought it new at the Pontiac - Rolls Royce dealership) Pontiac LeMans 2-door hardtop 326, had F-70 size tires ...... loved that car, green with black vinyl top and all-black interior. I don't remember if the windows were ever 'UP'.

Anyway, Bonnie & I stopped at Bob Longpre Pontiac one day, I wanted to see the Rolls Royce cars up close...... before we left we had bought the Pontiac. The car was delivered later that Saturday after we had received a phone call that it would be handed over to us at the Rolls Royce 'front carpet' by the dealership owner (Bob Longpre) himself, would we dress for the occasion. It happened that-a-way too, was kinda fun with all the attention, all their cars were delivered in that way, no used cars were sold at that site. Every evening the search-lights and front-carpet lights came on and a 'big deal' was made of it, Rolls-Royce or Pontiac.

As Ted says, "I'm not making this up".
