This was a recent post on the Datsun roadster forum:

"Oddly enough my story is most resent. Since I'm not as old as some of you;-) Just kidding. I was at a very small town parade about 5 years ago and it had convertible cars with local famous folks riding on the trunk lids. An old MGB stop right where we were watching the parade and stopped running. A few moments went by when the driver of a Datsun Roadster further back in the parade pulled up and got a tow rope out of his trunk, hooked it up to the MG and pulled the car the rest of the parade. Too funny. I had to have one from then on." [color:"red"] [/color]

Now I am not implying Japanese cars are better than British cars, but everybody has an opinion. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I guess it could be argued the Datsun owner was carrying a towstrap for a particular reason! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Well, cars seems to be a common interest. My first was a 16 year old Buick, same age as me,at the time. My Father was a Buick dealer, so it seemed like a good idea. Also, trained by his mechanics and body shop men to work on and repair all systems. About 12 more Buick's followed over the years.

Also had a 1965 Mustang Convertible, V8, used to pull my 20ft Fiberform I/O cruiser. Never should have sold it.

Went to Honda Accords several years back, plus a Mercury Mountaineer to pull the boats. As a West Virginia University Grad, it was a natural choice. The last additon two years ago was a 1992 Corvette, six speed, found it on the Internet for a good price. Dan loves it, and hopes drive it some day.

Music. I play the guitar, mando, fiddle and keyboards. I also have a little recording studio that I make CD's with friends.

Here is my '58 100-6 Healey, "Baby".
Uuhhh...I don't quite look like that anymore.
But all the mechanical skills that I HAD TO LEARN RIGHT NOW to keep her running are still useful. Except for the parts where the Austin-Healey manual said "Every 3 months remove the doors from their hinges and grease them". Sadly, Baby died a slow inevitable death from rust in Hawaii, and I will miss her forever.

During Winter I go mostly backcountry skiing.
During the warmer period, I go also for mountain biking and climbing, when I don't sail.

Here, me and my friends skiing in the swiss alps.

considering I now actually own a cat I thought I'd add my 2c...
I'm into photography mainly, but I also like to mess around with computers and the internet (when I have the time).
I also fix my own car (boat, or anything for that matter), not because its my hobby, more because it saves me a lot of money.
