Reflections based on poetry, music, visual art, book reviews, history of science, first-person history, philosophical essays and International Blogging

When I was a Resident Physician, I had a 1947 MG-TD   exactly like this. The “wind-screen” folded down on the bonnet.

The rag top was nearly useless and it did not have windows. I loved that car!


I had a 356 B Porsche in Candy Apple Red


I had a 1961 Corvette “Sting-Ray” with a removable hard-top (intermediate model between these two models)


I had The soft top Convertable of this Pontiac Firebird (Smokey & the Bandit car) The soft top went up electrically with once simple push of a dashboard button; my previous convertible tops required getting our the car and getting help to put the top down, With this Firebird, I put the top down almost everytime. Loved that car!


This Jaguar XK 120 was my father’s mid-life consolation. (Fire Engine Red)

Now in my rocking chair, I doze and dream  of  “four-on-the-floor”, wind-the-hair, and bugs-in-the-teeth!

In the comments section, tell me about cars you have loved.

    Even James Bond should be envy of you being the owner of cars like these, KK. Especially the first and last one in your photo gallery.

    Who knows, maybe you are to become the next James Bond? I strongly recommend that you already tomorrow start your work-outs at a gym near the place you live at. You’ve got the brains, KK, to become the next James Bond. But remember, is also brawny. 🙂
