I've owned 3 gt's,starting back in the mid 70's. A 70, 71 and the current 73 that I've had since '91. Also owned a Austin Marina GT and a 67 Sunbeam Alpine over the years. I used to work in engineering for a high-tech firm, but got smart and am now a full time firefighter and loving it. My interests include motorcycling (12 bikes over 40 yrs), woodworking and restoring antique fire engines. ie: a 1849 Hunneman hand tub, 1929 Seagrave and a 1920 White.

This is a picture of an 1849 Hunneman Hand Tub I restored in 2006. It was purchased new by my fire department and it is currently owned by the Westminster firefighter's association. It took me approx 1500 hours to complete.
