Too funny. I can relate. I had a 70 Spitfire. I can still hear the British engineers laughing at me but I'm the same. I see one for sale and almost pull over to look at it... Then I give my head a good shake....Yup. First ride here was a 72 TR-6. That's when I discovered what the term "mixed emotions" really meant. Thing is... neighbour down the street has one, and can't help but look every time I see it.
