I was born at burton on Trent Because the Luftwaffe was bombing the East End district of London Which housed the biggest docks areas on earth The Royal Docks was a prime target during war time, So My mother was evacuated During her pregnancy We were bombed out during a bombing raid. ( I’m sure Hitler had not specifically targeted me )
eventually I become a train driver in the Port of London (PLA) My first car was a Austin Seven Van (1928) Soon after that I owned a 1951 Cadillac fleetwood and then my Escapades with Cars began to fester, I have owned a 1977 Ferrari Berlinetta 512 A Lamborghini Contache 5000s And recently a Ferrari 360 spider, The fastest car I have ever owned was about two years ago - a Mercedes SL 600 bi Turbo - I’ve said all this Not to be flash But because of my love of cars, The worst one I ever owned - for practicality Was my Lamborghini ( My wife would never get into it.) “” too Ridiculously ostentatious”” she used to moan I don’t mind. I would go up the pub and p**s everyone off ... by now (1980s) I was running a Rolls Royce Wedding Hire Company ... I have had a wonderful life. And have settled down with a wonderful wife - 15 years younger than me, - We now live in A lovely little Essex Village near Epping Essex, Sue - my wife hadn’t yet sat foot in my little MX5 - to date because of the Virus constraints, Can’t wait for summer Throw the hood back and go to one of my lovely local pubs, Not doing bad am I. I was born today 80 years ago, 80 years young today, And enjoying every day of my life... take care you guys Best regards from Ray .
