A dude in The Samba Split Bus threads was bitching that the prices were of control because the baby boomers were living their dreams from their youth. Dumbass, I did not want a VW Bus when I was 16; I wanted a Sunbeam Tiger.

Thought about bringing back a Lotus Europa when I returned from England in '76, but by then they were out of production. Back then you could get one from the factory built for export, drive it for 6 months and avoid import duties.
Besides, by then I had a wife and two dogs and had traded in the A H Sprite (ours was white) for a Mini Van (ours was blue). Pat would have been happy with the Lotus. Before I met her she went with a mechanic for Colin Chapman and hung around the pits at Le Mans. When I met her, she drove a Frog Eyed Sprite. When she was a child during WWII her father had a Lagonda he acquired as payment for some architectural work he did and she learned to drive in an Alvis (my family was relatively boring vehicle-wise).

My older brother gave me a '63 Nova SS like this one when I was fifteen; it only had two pedals and was not good in the sand.

How fuc king stupid are you administrators? Letting me do this to your fora? Am I an obnoxious prick? Perhaps. Am I wrong? No. You should boot me. I plan to continue the build thread on The Samba in The off-topic forum when I go home. User name Craig.
