From the Burt Collection... "Sometimes when writing a new post for the blog, I feel that I am representing the interests of my age group. It’s my hope that every age group enjoys the posts and identifies with some part of it. Any age group can be entertained with the stories of one’s own past, but I don’t want to go too far afield. Car collecting is for everyone and it behooves the hobby to involve the youngest of collectors to carry the torch into the future.
Yet, there are some stories that occurred during our generation, which are more sentimental, more special – because we lived through them. These stories personified a feeling. Be that a positive feeling reflected in the social climate or the country as a whole. Our featured car was just such an example."
