My favorite car (and a favorite friend) from the sixties

Taken in 1965 or 1966. The car is a 1960 Austin-Healey Sprite. The photo was shot somewhere on the Oregon (USA) coast. The car I drive now is a 1993 Mazda Miata which is a lot like the Sprite, but has luxurious features such as upholstery, roll-up glass side windows (instead of snap-on plastic), a trunk, door handles and locks, etc, that the Sprite lacked. And you can check the oil by lifting the hood (bonnet) of the Miata instead of having to lift the whole front part of the car as was necessary with the Sprite.
