These are not all the cars or trucks I have owned, just the most memorable.  I no longer own all of them, although I wish I did.  The Jaguar, the Mustang and the '86 Corvette are gone, but I remember them well.  Except for the Mustang which had a very small back seat, and the truck which has an occasional rear seat, the rest are strictly two-seaters.  The Jag and the '69 Vette could hold a third person for a very short trip, if she was small, but comfort and safety were minimal.  The newer Vettes simply cannot carry a third person.

My first ride in a sports car was a neighbor Dave Ridenour's XK120 Jaguar that was modified for SCCA racing.  I must have been all of fourteen when I would go to his garage and hang out waiting to be asked to help with some task, usually the dirty work he didn't want to do. My hands got dirty, but I didn't care, I was working on a car - a race car!

Click for Jaguar XK120 Page The two cars on the left and right are the bookends of my sports cars.  I bought the Jaguar when I was a callow youth in the Air Force, with barely enough money to keep it running.  The ZO6 on the left is my latest and greatest.
