I was born WELL after production ended. I am probably one of the youngest here, but I still have a great appreciation for the cars.

I arrived well before production started. I bought a 58 Speedster in '66 and still have it. Keep the faith by driving them. Bill #2872

Just looked at all the posts and wondering where the old timers hang out.
Maybe they don't want to admit they'er over the hill.
( other than Dale Moody) I'm the oldest and I know that ain't so.

This photo could have been possibly taken on my birth date in October. It was the same month the first 356's were imported by Max Hoffman in 1950.

In the USA but more important to me in the UK was

T.Rex - Get It On
