Hot Wheels: Austin's Powers
By Dick Hepner ’60
I am pictured here with my first automobile, a 1957 Austin Healey 100/Six. It cleared the road by only 5.5 inches, and its snug-fitting bucket seats gave the sensation that one was wearing the car rather than driving it. While motoring back to campus from the Deer Lodge one starry night, the hood latch unintentionally released and caused the wind to blow the engine hood back over the windshield. Fortunately, I was stopped before a major accident occurred, but the incident gave my date and me quite a scare.

In all my life, no other material possession has given me so much joie de vivre as that sassy little red sports car.
