    Default Greetings from England

    Hi everyone and thanks for accepting me into the group.
    I'm from Salisbury, England near the south coast. Have had a lifelong desire for a V8 so recently bought this 75 Corvette.
    I have utterly fallen in love with its graceful lines and the music from the modified exhaust.

    Beats the hell out of lithium batteries for sure.

    Enjoy the ride.

    Welcome and congrats on such a aweet 'Vette!! Years back, my best friend had a '75 Vette--he's the one that gave me the "bug"....my first was a '76 Coupe.

    Oh and BTW, HUGE fan of the UK...spent a lot of great time there while we were stationed in Europe.

    Where were you stationed? And what service? (Ignore this if you're not allowed to post such information)

    Welcome to Estados Unidos Americanos! I've worked a lot with folks from the UK, especially England and Canada, during my years in the Army. You all have my respect and admiration and you are family here.

    USAF, 1974-2005, but I'm also a Navy spouse from 2000-2019. We weren't stationed in the UK, but traveled there on leave--had a good friend (no longer with us, sadly) I was deployed with after 9/11 who was a retired RAF guy who hosted us, mostly around London.

    We did our European tours in Turkey and Sicily.

    Thanks Tom,
    Don't think much has changed. Still a lovely city, albeit a very small one.

    You're right. Its only a matter of time before we are inundated with electric cars. Only... you can't hear them coming so dealers are going to have to offer electronic sound packages as a safety feature.
