    Dear Wheels (and spike.t),

    With my apology to both of you, as well as to any other fancier of cars.............if Bombay Sapphire had not been on sale yesterday, I would have instead written:

    When I think about all the money that the Automobile Industry has choked out of me in my lifetime, I get grouchy but, I have to admit that the Lamborghini is a pretty cool car.

    Stay on that front sight,
    Velo Dog.

    Got my first gun when I was 10, Ruger 10/22; (serial # 1719 & still have it), harvested many Grey Squirrel in FL with it.
    First vehicle was a Honda CB-450 bike when I was 17.
    Didn't have much money growing up, so I didn't buy any albums until I joined the Army; Charlie Daniels: A Decade of Hits.

    First car- 1966 ford f-150 bought from my grandfather for 300.00 (wish I still had it)

    First gun I bought myself- Spingfield 1903 30-06AI sporter. Still have it although it's pretty much a safe queen.

    First record- either Kiss Hyway to Hell or Foreigner Rumors not sure

    First animal hunted- California quail. If not counting all the squirrels, dickey birds, grass hoppers and other misc critters that fell to a Benjamin ,22 air rifle.

    Good Stuff :)

    Spike.T,

    That's Mister VD to you.

    Went to the local spirits store and they had Grey Goose products aplenty but no orange flavor.
    Will try again one day soon.
    Have yet to try fruit flavor cocktail or liquor of any sort that I really liked except properly made sangria and I suppose one could argue that sangria is or is not technically a cocktail, all night long.
    I will however give the stuff you endorse a try soon as I find it.
    Incidentally, I have to be careful with sweet food and drink because I am already so sweet that I have to fight off bees and women wherever I go.

    Meanwhile, "Vitamin G" is good for a bloke.
    Justp looke hear an sea whata guldang genus it maid uv me.
    Besides, it has made me look every bit a youthful 61 but I am actually 122 years old.

    Cheers,
    El Doggo.

    It is good to hear that do many people have such fond and vivid memories of these parts of their life.

    @Sable123 : that Land Rover Defender is one badass car. Not exactly my cup of tea for a suv (I prefer the Range Rover) but I love the look of the Defender and would definitely get one over a Hummer H2.

    Hi Saul,

    To be honest I bought the Defender from a PH buddy of mine because it was a bargain and came with plenty of camping equipment but my GOODNESS how i love that machine now. The places we have gone in it are incredible and the 4x4 system is excellent. Don't think i'll ever sell, in fact I may buy one for my wife :whistle: Im going to post some photos in another thread of what we get up to in Okavango Delta with our Land Cruisers (another excellent vehicle.)
    Cheers

    Still an awesome car. I would love to see some pics of it too. If I'm not looking at guns, I'm looking at cars. How do I get any work done?
