This is a love letter to my sweetheart, and a tribute to the other love of his life…

It’s been a long time coming. This gorgeous girl is the same age as me, but she has only been ours for a short time. Long enough to fall in love…

For the last fifteen years or so we have been looking for a car to love. Not just to drive, but to enjoy for the history and design and artistic innovation that makes this car more than just “the sum of her parts”. She’s special.

The angles and arches of each curve are beautiful together.
