29 years with the same bugeye and counting!  gimmie personality any day of
the week!
yeah new stuff has incredible refinements to their "evrything".  but you do
not need to know how to handle a car that practically drives itself!  on the
other hand making a bugeye stand on it's ear flyind down a "twisty" is a
whole other experience!   and with a full competition suspension yet another
exciting experience!

gimmie personality any day!
that's why my harley has wire wheels and drum brakes!
that's why i have 2 '55 chevies!
that's why i still own my bugeye!
and the number one reason i vintage race!

Give me an oldie with personality any day. I would much rather get out and
whack my fuel pump once in awhile, or change my points in a rainstorm, than
need a "service technician" just to change my oil.
