Hello All,

I must have come to my senses lately after driving my 66 Cortina GT a few weeks back for the first time in a long while. I cant tell you how I've missed driving my car, as there is really only one word "FUN". Many of you might already know me but it's nice to re-acquaint myself. I own a Sept. 1966 Cortina GT that was originally bought by a family in Long Beach, Calif. finding it's way to northern Calif. and staying most of it's life there until I bought it 17yrs. ago. My family and Cortina migrated to the Pacific Northwest about 12 yrs. ago where we started a new life. Before the Cortina, I owned many different cars from Lotuses to Minis etc. but always have had a connection to the Cortina. My first memories were when I was a kid in Calif. we would go to Laguna Seca and watch Brit cars race against German, Italian etc. then go into the paddock area and talk with the Locort racers about their cars. Anyway I'm starting to ramble on....
I just wanted to say that Iam a Cortinaholic and my name is Steve Kovacs. It will be fun to contribute to this forum...thanks for listening!

Steve,

Good to hear from you!I was wondering when you'd turn up.
Had a visit with Clyde Bailey - he lives about 2 hours North of here,
in Oregon.He still has your Alpine,& wants to sell it.

Hey you guys,

Nice to hear from you Doug & Michael...it's good to be back! So Doug, Clyde wants to sell my old Sunbeam Alpine? How much? If you contact him sometime have him get ahold of me. I'm in the process of finding a painter for the GT with some luck as I would like to paint it in the spring of 09 but not this year due to some fall out of business for me, oh well the paint quest continues for the old girl!
Please keep in touch!

Steve
