SAMOA, once a glimmer in someone’s eye

“We were standing around in my folk’s basement in the spring of ’64 (or maybe it was ’63) talking about Minis (while working on one of them I suspect) and someone wondered why we shouldn’t start a club for just us.  It was more or less a joke at that time.  I thought about it and dreamed up an emblem, cutting it out of cardboard, and spray painting it as a stencil on the inside of my parent’s garage door.”  -Del Gould
