    I rented brand new Yamaha Twin Jets 100cc in 1968 for $40 a day

    They were a bit faster

    Here are my 3 favorite vehicles

    The white Honda scooter was stolen...sad

    The Honda 550 was a money maker, bought for $400 1986, sold for $1600 after years of my abuse. It was really designed well. I dropped it on ice several times, no damage, a pickup truck backed over it, broke one turn signal. I caught the the drunk and made him pay on the spot. All stock, shifted at redline all the time, shifted like butter with no clutch!

    Nobody wanted that van, it was smoking like crazy. Needed a $5 rubber diaphragm...

    It also fit a 10' Arkay sink inside with doors closed.

    Also sold for a good profit

    all parked in front of my LAST EVER CONDO, but again a good profit

    I don't miss driving/riding at all

    Brings back memories...always wanted a '67 Firebird back in my younger days, but had to 'settle' for a 1968 GTO instead. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had held onto the GTO...they're worth a fortune.

    Photo taken in a pretty cool 'junkyard' in Jerome, AZ (can't recall the make and model...I just liked the broken headlight and "Federal" which can connote many different things to some):

    Shot with my 126 Camera in 1967

    I clearly remember his refusing to step into the light. Just out as 4 year Army enlistee

    1996 Ducati Monster 750 bought new by telephone!

    Took a train to get it

    Now an antique per IL license plate

    Had a blast for 4 years, then wanted different, as usual
