A Horse, a Horse–My Kingdom for a Horse…

Or at least 225 horses in an in-line 6-cylinder engine.

When I was growing up in the wilds of South Carolina, my mother was what I am today – a car nut.  In retrospect, I suppose I learned that passion at her knee. She traded cars every year, with some excuse or another, but I think she just liked having a different car when her passion faded.  Her favorite was Mercury made by the Ford Motor Company and now a defunct division.

Once, she had a 1964 burgundy Chevrolet Impala Super Sport with really fancy wheel covers.  The style at the time was to remove the wheel covers.  That was cool. So, cool that we were two girlfriends and I borrowed Mom’s SS and headed to Myrtle Beach to cruise the strip.  We didn’t meet any boys at ‘where the boys are’ but we had a wonderful time.

My particular affliction is the sports car, which love was fostered when my Dad helped me buy a Jaguar E-Type at the ripe old age of 18.



That love affair has persisted to today.  I had 4 Miatas, then fell in love with the BMW Z3 (probably my favorite of all time).  Z3PO was my best buddy.  I then bought a 135i that I didn’t really love.  A new Miata came next, but my libido began to stir, and I started doing on-line searches for a Z4.  Wings here was the result.

All is well in Happy Zippy Car Land but uh-oh, today I started to search Z3s for sale on-line.  Are Wings’ days numbered?

May the Force be with you this Friday, February 23, 2018!
