Once in a while it has come up that my Mom and Dad used to drive around in sports cars, go to motorsport events and camp out in the middle of the oval at night. They stopped doing this a long time before I was born and Dad has never expressed any interest in sports cars in my life. But I remember he would occassionally watch F1 races on a Sunday afternoon.

My sister sent scans of a couple photos of my Dad and one of his sports cars, which I think is a MG Midget MKI based on the date stamp on the photo. I’m going to ask my Dad about he car and see if I can get some details, but I don’ t think I’ll bring up the skinny ties he seemed to love.
