Shortly before I got married, I bought a new '71 Triumph GT6. I loved that car, but it was a typical electrical nightmare. I needed a more "responsible" car for my new bride, so I sold it just before it went out of warranty. This isn't mine, but looked just like it. Still miss that car... Tom

BD.... luv your Cooper. I had two Mini's, a 67, and a 72. Just luved them. I had the pleasure of driving a couple 1275cc Cooper S's back in the day and would dream of owning one, but just a shade out of my price bracket.

LOL, on the Mini's they placed the distributor right up front just behind the grill with no shield from the elements. Of course the rain and wet would get all over the distributor and the car would die, usually in the middle of a thunderstorm. What were those Brits thinking???

Easy to answer since every car I've owned was practical and economical; not fun. Except for one; my 1965 Sunbeam Tiger, Mark I, British Racing Green, powered by a Ford 289. Its been a project sitting the garage for more than 30 years, but now is at a restoration shop being totally rebuilt. Photos will be posted when it's done. For those now aware of the Rootes story here is a Youtube link.

In 1977, I bought a 1967 Dodge Monaco 500 2-dr with 383 cu-inch engine. Was a great ride but the gas consumption was very high. Sold it shortly thereafter and bought a low mileage Honda CVCC (1976). Loved that car but eventually sold it for a motorbike. These are not actual images of my cars, but very close in color and appearance.

Actually the only lucas smoke for me came from my father charging my cortina battery backwards, yes positive ground(earth). That cost me a battery, generator and voltage regulator. The fun stuff was hooking up a stereo with having to make sure it wasn't touching any metal!

Here I am "Livin' the Dream" at Ft Irwin, CA in Jan '04. It's part of the Mojave Desert north of Barstow, and borders Death Valley's southern border. We lived in our vehicles for 2 months, sleeping in the back. I woke up twice to remove coyotes trying to get my rations. I love the desert, especially this one!

Humvee's were the perfect vehicle for the desert. We seldom used the road network; and if all 4 wheels were on the ground at the same time; we weren't trying! Since I was a taxpayer, and thus a part owner of my vehicle, I'm changing my answer to this one. Let me take this opportunity to thank all you other "part owners" out there for helping out with the financing. Tom

My first car.. a '72 Mercury Cougar, with a 357 Cleveland. The sequential taillights were kinda cool, seeing them on new Mustangs now.
