For me, it started at age 13 when I saw this ad in my dad’s Business Week magazine. Six years later I got my first car, a tired and abused four year old 1963 silver blue XKE Roadster. Decades later I deduced it had been a rental car when I got the Heritage Certificate listing Hertz San Francisco office as the original owner.
Fast forward. A few years ago walking down Champs-Élysées I recognized the bright awning.
Note to self: Add to bucket list. Drive my E-Type to Fouquet’s for dinner with Claire.
