    Ah yes, I remember actual printed ads for things. They even used to put ads for jobs in papers once!

      Wow!!! By Nov of '89, my father and I were deep into the search for my 6. We searched every Hemmings and the local paper too for at least a couple years looking for the right car. I'm sure I looked at this very page and read every car description too many times.....

      We eventually found my car at the side of the road sticking out from the side of a barn.

        That month my daughter was born, I was working as a programmer for an insurance company, fixing up our recently purchased old house, ordering parts from TRF to complete the restoration of my red TR250 with A-Type OD (which I finished & sold 4 years later for $8,000. ).

        PO had changed Signal Red to a Ford Metallic Red.
        Bought for $5,000., kept it for 13 years, put another $5,000. into it (and uncounted hours).
        Wires, armrest center console, OD, rebuilt engine, rebuilt gearbox, nice seats...
        Took it up to The Roadster Factory Summer Party in 1992; it drew Charles like a magnet, Charles liked it.
        Never broke down, just consumed money.
        At my young age, I really didn't know what a special car I had.
        It was fun, particularly after the OD solenoid was repaired.
