    The vehicle is mine, but the person in the front seat was a friend of mine, enthusiastic with a cap on his head. I sold my whole collection a few years after this picture was made and stopped collecting until the mid 1980s, when I started again, and expanded my foetid woolens, to include buying back much of what I sold originally.

    No, it is not I. He was a friend of mine.

    Actually, certain of these caps I got back, two of the black officer ones and they are mine again....the grey silk officer's cap, though, I wish I still had.
    damit, basta.

    No, I sold it in 1975 to a family friend. It is a 1971 Audi Super 90, a car one never sees much of anywhere. It had in board disc brakes which got overheated and which also got oil on them from the motor.
    A refined design that was not practical for real life. I still have the bills from the mechanic. He had a beautiful young wife with whom I became friends later on. Life has many twists, you see.
    damit, basta.

ID:	460916This SS peaked cap had a grey silk cap cover and a grey interior. Its story is in another thread here on white SS uniforms.
