    I count that as living very dangerously indeed! My first car had vinyl 'upholstery' with little dimples and ridges impressed upon the surface. Which would further impress on bare legs if you were sitting, or otherwise engaged for too long. Still, they cleaned up easily enough.

    What? Mini skirts were fashionable. It was summer. Ice lollies melted. Don't know what you were thinking. ;-)

    Some people's minds are just in the gutter. ;)

    ....with the floorboards removed to get foot-purchase on the ground?

    This is the same as mine (or similar anyway) a 1974 1.3 sport in Le Mans Green. Super fast, lol.

    Dear Nige,

    Was the car modified too?

    For sheer canoodling comfort when parked (albeit very slow on the road, and hard on front tyres) the back seat of my ex-Glasgow FX4D was hard to beat. But for much of the time I was running my most interesting cars (TR3, Rover P5, FX4...) I was with the same girl. I was 18-22; she was 15-19. Just after we split up she got a Mini Moke.

    Cars were more fun in those days. At school and at university other friends and acquaintances had a Big Healey; an XK120; Series Land Rovers; a P4 Rover; a Morris Minor convertible; "Rumblebum", a Jaguar Mk. V (I think) with a sort of giant Lotus 7 body on it; and more. And of course we all had more or less go-faster Minis at one time or another.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Speaking of which, in those days I had access to the Esso Uniflo Ford Escort rally team and a journo had been bugging me to get him a ride with Roger Clark, then RAC champion. I took him out to Bagshot tank training ground where they trained and put him in the car with RC. Then had to help him stand after. The guy's legs just melted. :)

    I dunno....make friends with somebody with a Fiesta RS or a Dodge Hellcat.....or stick a modern superbike engine or two in something resembling a Lotus 7.

    I'll let you have the minis though.....that disconcerting feeling of all the weight going onto one front tyre and it doesn't just tuck under you is pretty fun. (the only thing the modern interpretation has got going for it?)

    I used to particularly like how the minis (more so the clubmans) used to be prone to a bit of crabbing. I presume the chassis was made of rubber. It certainly made interesting driving when it felt your back end was going to pass you.

    Reminds me of the Ital Estate I had - was very nice to drive in a straight line for a 1275cc car with a fair sized body (so what I mean is it was very, very dull), but the moment you had to turn, the car refused, and kept going straight on. We had a 1300 Sunbeam which was brilliant fun in comparison, you could drive it on the limit and still be legal. ;)

    All this talk of being named after where you were conceived reminds me of this old joke.

    Three expectant mothers were chatting at an ante natal clinic. The first one says; "I think I'm having a boy because my husband was on top when we conceived"

    The woman next to her replies "I think I'm having a daughter because I was on top"

    The woman at the end starts panicking and says "I think I'm having a puppy"

    I have nieces called Atlanta and Savannah. Maybe I should ask my brother if he's ever been!:D

    No. It is a curse for those whose brains are disfunctional. Those people gobble it up.
    Functional brains just dismiss it.
