Thanks, Marshall, much appreciated.
Quite right about the GTO but back then it was just another old car and a little clapped out at that! In any case I should have kept it and the $400, immaculate, ’65 tri-power, 4 spd GTO convertible I had as well. We were awash in wonderful cars back then and I suppose the very fact that they were so plentiful induced us to take them for granted. No point in crying over spilled milk as I expect that every generation has similar stories of opportunities missed.
