My daughter is 25 now but she is proud to say she was the first person to get rubber in my Shelby some three years ago. She has always helped work on my cars since she was 4.
Now, as to Amelia, I would not only like to meet her, I would like to borrow her and make a trip the museum. I have NEVER seen anyone allowed into the Cobra she was in and, I agree, she looked awfully comfortable in there. If I have her with me, I might get to sit in Dan Gurney's Ford GT.
I can see it now when it is time for her to learn to drive, "Dad, I want to learn to drive a stick shift and the GT350 is the only stick we have around. Let's go, Dad."
All the best with your new car.
