Bought a 64 midget in 1968. Went through 5 Bs; 64, 65, 66, 68 and 71 with an XKE mixed in between. Went to company cars and Porsches from 76 to 2016. Last year bought a 71B and this year a 73. In the 60s/70s 4 of my close friends also had a few Bs

Summer of 1972 after my sophomore year of college. A 1967 Primrose Yellow B whose leather interior had seen better days. Drove it like I stole it. Got it for $ 1,100.

In ‘71 bought a ‘66 Roadster for $1000. Drove the hell out of it. Drove on trails, full of diving tanks (9), loaded up with 9 people, etc. etc. Had an accident coming back from Skiing one night. But then someone made a left turn right into me right in the same spot! So his insurance co. Paid for the whole thing, plus I made about $500 by doing the work myself, then had Sprayking paint it. Sold it a few years later in /75 and replaced it with a ‘69 C roadster. I really loved that car. Wish I never sold it. But sold it for a bigger car to haul kids around in.

Bought the current ‘69 4 years ago just before moving to Hawaii. It is almost done and ready for paint to get back on the road again for more fun times.

Got a wrecked 62 Roadster in 68 and rebuilt it with the tutelage of the garage owner who gave it to me. Gave it to my brother 3 years later for a $300 debt after acquiring a 356B Super Coupe. These are the only photos I have of it.

Approx 1974.

Bought a 1969 white GT which was a rust bucket after only 6 years of New England's salty roads.

I drove it round trip to Florida and then to San Francisco where I sold it. Bought another GT in 1980 which I still have today.
