There she goes, off into the sunset. I was just 13 at the time with not a clue that my life would be irrevocably changed by this beauty.

1967 Goanese Crew Members

click to enlarge

Courtesy of Ron Sheldon

I loved these guys, not these people specifically, but all the Goanese crew. They were so happy to be there, so helpful, they did an excellent job and they taught me the delights of Indian food and that is something I shall remain eternally grateful for as it's now the last remaining guiltless pleasure in my life.
