    First ride in a LBC

    I got to see my twin grandkids for the first time in six months due to the lockdown. I've been looking forward to this day as many of us have to see our loved ones. My 5 1/2 year old asked if I would take him for a ride in "grandpa's car".... His first ever ride in a convertible and he loved it!

    You know you are RIGHT.... when I was about 10 years old I saw a guy riding a Lambretta. Ever since then I was hooked.

    My "enlightenment" came early, I was a toddler and Dad had pals who ran hillclimbs. One with an MG-TC, another with an XK-120. I got rides in both. The Confirmation came at about age 13, when the friends of a neighbor showed up in a Series-2 Lotus Elan. That ride was eye opening, the owner baited a Corvette into a drag race and out accelerated it by a BIG margin. I never looked at Detroit Iron the same way again.
