My Favorite Sports Car

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I think I need to plan a road trip to some car museums this winter. The Fourney Museum of Transportation is on my list. And my brother turned me on to the Shelby American Collection in Boulder.

I bought a Triumph Spitfire in 1970. Probably among the slowest (especially after the 327 '62 Chevy I shared with a buddy in high school), worst handling cars of all time - but I loved it.

The most nostalgia laden dream car of my youth, the stuff of teenage dreams, was the Shelby Ford GT-40.
I had two Spitfire MKIVs back in the day. Could sit in the driver's seat and lay my hand flat on the ground. Could fit under a semi trailer (never tried that while it was moving...). Couldn't park against a curb, or you'd have to step UP to get out of it.

Lucas electrics and SU carbs be damned, I loved that car!
