Post A little different from my Morris Minor!

Good morning, folks. My name is Gordon and I am a museum worker, retired Navy helicopter guy living in San Diego. My kids and I wander Southern California in my 57 Morris Minor convertible, but its a bit of a chore without radio and with a top speed that borders on comical. Lots of thumbs up as people pass us in horse-drawn buggies.

My Wednesday mornings are spent in the company of the Old Bold Pilots of Oceanside, a motley collection of former and current aviators, mostly from the military. We have many Navy and Air Force guys, plus a few Marines and even a few ex-patriots from around the world. Our German contingent includes three former Luftwaffe fighter pilots and a private pilot with an addiction to BMWs mit sidecars for his dog to ride in. Discussions between the BMW guys and the MB faction are spirited and fun to listen to.

Brings me to my new car. I crave convertibles. A few days ago, I bought a 2003 CLK 430 with 30,000 miles. It seems in wonderful condition with Brabus wheels and no trace of abuse. I love it! I can't wait to wander this forum and find other folks with similar cars, so I can learn from their experiences.

All my best,
