That's just junk too. The only real spy thriller was Get Smart.

Austin Powers is better than Bond. Who can doubt it with dialog like this?

Austin: Those are skin tight. How do you get into those pants baby?
Felicity Shagwell: You can start by buying me a drink.

OK, but Kuryakin was with U.N.C.L.E. I Spy was a different bunch.

I am also going on the record for Get Smart, 99, Sunbeam Tiger, Cone of Silence...what more do you need?

Maybe the Avengers, Ms. Peel and a Bentley.

Sunbeam Tiger? That was just a bomb with a too big engine, not a sports car. TR4A was better.

Hi, I like the toaster with a Ford V-8 in it. The only good Triumphs had two wheels.

Not exactly. It had a chance if it started and didn't stop in the next few minutes.

When i was young, my dad wanted a MG TD, but because he had made the oft repeated human mistake of having children, he settled for a 1952 Sunbeam-Talbot 90 Mk II cabriolet.

Sunbeam-Talbot 90 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That and a 1949 Jeep 4WD wagon were the available transportation until later in the 50's when the Jeep was traded in on a 1956 model, and the Sunbeam was traded in on a 1957 Citroen DS-21.

CitroŽn DS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

We were not what you would call a conventional transportation family.

Ken, there's been a Jeepster for sale for a very long time just outside of Delta, Colorado. Looks like it may have an extra top. When I was young, back in the 1940's, my father used to point out to me every Jeepster that came along. I knew he wanted one, but he would never actually buy something that was unconventional.

When I bought my first sports car years later, he made fun of it, but it was easy to tell he liked it a lot. I let him drive it once and he was excited until he realized he had forgotten how to shift. I got great joy out of his lurching down the street. He lasted about 2 blocks.

So, every time we drive past the Jeepster, I think about buying it. I never will because I am not quite crazy enough (and my wife is even less crazy despite her choice of husband), but maybe you are. When you buy it (I'll send you directions to it if you want) as a tribute to your father, can I have a ride?

My dad also had a infatuation with the Jeepster. I could never understand it. To me it was a clumsy attempt to make a Jeep appear like a sports car. My dad did end up buying one later in life. It was a 70s vintage Jeepster Commando.

Jeepster Commando - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My dream car when I was young was a Porshe RS550 spider.

Porsche 550 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

However, had I ever got my hands on one, I would now probably be sitting in a little desert bar somewhere on Hwy 66 drinking beer with James Dean and maybe Steve McQueen (I think he owned one once also).

don't know much about the E types. I did ride around in LA in one way back in the 70's. Nice looking car.

But I DO have tons of experience with rebuilding Brit motorcycles and presently own two Land Rover Defenders.

Anything with Lucas electrics or Amal carbs ......well.....you better either have money and a good mech, or be very mechanically inclined yourself.

You end up working on them just about as much as you drive them.

Still love a Brit twin, though.
