Had to laugh at this one; reminded me of an old episode of "Frasier," where
he was sulking about becoming "middle-aged" and his brother Niles said,
"Yes, you're middle-aged if you live to be 104!"
Over the years there's been lots of experiences, good and bad, with blondes,
brunettes and redheads, and I've appreciated them all (though I've not yet
married any of them).
Same with front-engined rear drive sportscars, V-6s, in-line sixes, in line
fours, transmissions, transaxles, German, British and Japanese, lots of
experiences, good and bad, and I've appreciated them all.
Haven't had a ragtop yet, maybe an S2000's in my future sometime. But, for
right now, a swoopy-looking light-weight, t-topped, turbocharged,
mid-engined sportscar is still providing me with all the
automotive pleasures I could want. And, while it's currently still
stripped down in my garage, I sure like having it there.
Best Wishes to you David, with all the experiences you're yet to have.
