    My first great life/love/car experience was serving at NATO HDQT'S in Belgium as a young airman, running around Europe in a brand new Fiat 850 Coupe (Dark Green - Saddle interior), falling in love with a beautiful, petite NATO Translator who spoke six languages and who looked like and had the class of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (sadly, she - Francine, we married in 1969 - and Jackie are both dead), learning fluent French, advancing in the USAF, meeting wonderful women and men in Belgium (at NATO, in villages, in Brussels, in France).

    Nothing in life has been as exciting and as lovely as that period for me.

    No US muscle car involved.
