Senior year in high school, wishing I had a GT6 - my favorite at the time.

Oh, and thanks for the visual, Tom! :jester:

That was three months before I went into the Army. I was driving a red (with white racing stripe) '62 TR4. After basic training, that car was driven from Long Island to my AIT at Fort Gordon, GA...and back again, and then to Wash. DC, and then got wrecked somewhere along the way before I got sent to Thailand. Too bad, I really liked that car.

In England driving a MINI, getting the MG TA ready to bring back to the States. We got 2 weeks notice of a transfer to Kelly AFB in Texas, not very happy. A little bitter, yeah, but now the good stuff, life goes on if you are lucky. Not a good time to be in service during that time, but lots of great cars were being made.

Was just back from the United States Grand Prix. Jim Clark nursed home a win (his Lotus 49 had broken its rear suspension) over team mate Graham Hill. Very few cars finished but boy was there drama and excitement.

I was a high school junior at Marion Millitary Institute prepping for a career as a Navy pilot. Alas it was not to be...won a Navy scholarship, but poor eyesight kept me from flying, so off to college and 6 or 7 years of 'education'!

I was stationed at Vint Hill Farms in the Army Security Agency. In the next year I bought a new Jasmine Yellow TR-250. Had, and sold, a bunch of muscle cars since then. Now, here is the good part, last week I bought a restored white 250 and ready to take it home this week. It rained everyday last week and the car will not be driven in poor weather. The car has bolt on Panasport wheels on it and brand new tires. My new wires will be here on Tuesday and the redline tires will be here at the end of the week. Today I am watching football while planning our next year vacation Bletchley Park, home of the WW2 Nazi code breakers in the U. K..

I was a sophomore in high school longing for a Triumph GT6 or a Capri. Never did get them.

1967? That's one of those years where I don't seem to remember much of what happened. Also 1968 & 1969.

I'm pretty sure I had long hair and was wearing beads.

Lets see, I was 11. That was a long time ago and don't remember what I did last week let alone 48 years ago. Should have asked me 10 years ago I would have had a better chance of remembering.
