Early issue of Custom Car magazine, first published March 1970.

I remember the article, but it wasn't in my collection of old CCs so I can't tell you the date.

I'm a mathematician all right - and made a better living out of it in the computer business than I ever deserved. And FWIW, my own age, expressed in hexadecimal, is 42.

Thread drift, or what?
