Over the weekend of the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, I (Tub) invited my father out for the weekend to partake in the festivities. He was probably the inspiration and genesis of my automotive enthusiasm. We've never really had a conversation like this before, so it was nice to sit down for an hour and talk about his life as a young car enthusiast. He's never been a furrin' car guy, so it was interesting seeing him at Monterey. "Is that a Ferrari?" No, that's a Lotus. "Is that a Ferrari?" No, that's an Acura. "Is that a Lamborghini?" No, that's a Ferrari.
If I can leave you with some advice, interview your parents. Talk about their past. Chances are, there's some good history there.
