One benefit of a tiny British car with a manual transmission—such as mom’s Triumph Spitfire pictured here—is that it’s very easy to push…especially with a gaggle of friends. We weren’t old enough to drive properly, so we’d take turns behind the wheel while everyone else pushed the car up and down the block as fast as we could run.
Even though the engine wasn’t running, I doubt that the police or the insurance company would have approved of our scheme, had they found out. Regardless, this was my first experience “driving” a convertible.

One final time this year, I’ll mention that prints and merchandise are available in my Fine Art America gallery for anyone interested in unique gift opportunities. Prints can be ordered in a wide variety of sizes and paper choices, with the ability to add mounting and framing options. My photos can even be printed on canvas, metal, acrylic and wood, as well as on cards, posters, mugs, puzzles, towels, shirts and many other items. Over 650 photographs to choose from, with more on the way. Please contact me if you need help finding a specific item, or if you have any issues while navigating the site.
