Lookin' back - some more

A few days ago I visited a European car show.  In the comments, I mentioned the 1971 MGB I once owned.  Guess what?  I found some pictures!

Of course, those cars did have their problems.  Fortunately the manufacturers included a tire pump.

That was in Indiana.  A year or two later found us in Scottsdale at an arts fair.  SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed), me and the girl who went on to become The BRD (Beautiful Rich Daughter).

And some years later, at work in California, a stop at the beach.  In a leisure suit!

Lots of good memories in those old photos.

Love the MGB pic. And it wasn't even that horrid rubber-bumper model. Niiiiice!

I visited Overseas Motors so many times conning them out of a test drive they finally got wise and said either buy one or go home.That's as close as I've ever been to owning one, even 15-minutes at a time.

And that leisure un-PC. Do you know how many polyesters had to die to make that? Shame on you. ;)

I'm really loving these old photos. I might have to dig some of mine out. I might have been younger than you in the 70s, but my clothing was just as...interesting. :)

You should have seen me a few years earlier . . . in my Nehru jackets!

I was wondering if anyone would notice those!

How fun! How were the roads in the 70's in Arizona? I am wondering.
