Who You Are: I am a professonal Counselor, working at the time in a Middle School, but have much experience working with high risk youth in adventure-based programs. Developed a 4-day backcountry program which I conducted for nearly 18 years. My interest in LBC's began with my very first automobile, a 1963 TR4 that I bought off a used car lot in 1965. Burnt oil but my first foray into a curve at speed nearly drove my sphinter muscles wild. I traded the TR for a brand new AH 3000, right off the transport, in 1966 at a dealership in Cincinnati. Drove the Healey for 3 years, then traded it for a larger vehicle and got away from the breed until 3 years ago when I bought Miss Vicky for $400 from a lady who had kept her stored inher basement for 12 years. I enjoy rock climbing, working on my cars, hiking/backpacking, fishing, esp trout fishing, drinking really good beer, like Guinness, writing poetry, traveling, and hanging out around a campfire.

Check: YES
Where: Western Chicago suburbs.
Who You Are: My first LBC was a 1969 Triumph GT6+. Rusted rockers and needed a brake rebuild. Loved the car but had to get rid of it to pay for college. Lust for LBC's was latent until I got rid of an anti-LBC wife and bought the Midget. Wasn't looking for a Midget but it popped up at the right price and I took it home to nurse it back to health. Now, three and a half years later it sits in the garage with a blown head gasket due to overheating. Before that happened I put 1,000 miles on the car and love it. This spring I'll be on the road again minus the wire wheels and ace carb.

Who You Are: Gas Turbine Specialist, on the road most of the time, installing, modifying and teaching the owners how to operate and care for their machines. Wanted a Midget since High School. Three years ago I decided to buy the 76. After tearing her apart and rebuild most of her, she is my daily driver. But the fever hit, 76 was on the road two months, needed another toy so I found the 71. Been working on her for a year. And then I found the RWA 72 sitting in storage and just had to have her. What an addiction.
