Thanks for this thread, Jack. It has been great to follow your progress! When I read your post about the drive home, I thought, "Yep, only a proud Vette owner would stop to get a car wash when he was racing a storm home." Well done, and Happy New Year!

The weather has been dry and driving has been fun the last few days.
I have added more photos to the http://www.corvettevagabond.com/ site. Germany has joined the list with Netherlands additions. France will be added soon along with many more of Germany and Scandinavia, with Finland coming on soon.

Samples of a get together in Germany and a Netherlands NCRS red corvette.

I may drive to Michigan this winter

Hold on to your hats fellas, I have to go to Michigan to work on my TV project next month. (February)

My family is against my driving my 66 roadster to MI (Detroit) in the winter. I don't see any big deal not to .

I put good snow tires on and just like 40 years ago when I went skiing, one big 850 mile skid.

What route do you think I should take from Maine?

Jack

2012 Trip

It is real cold today in Maine. I thought it would be fun to re-post many of the photos from my 48 state trip, as I work on the book / TV project.

Looking at them, brings back many great memories, some good, some bad, but all exciting ! I will post several daily for the next few weeks, as I am recovering from minor foot surgery.

I hope you enjoy them and if you have some interesting photos or video of my visit to you or your event, let me know.

I am continuing to add photos to the European 2012 Tour at www.corvettevagabond.com

Jack

What do you think of this statement ?

I would like to re post part of a reply to me on my http://www.corvettevagabond.com/ website from a German C2 owner , on the German Corvette forum. He is now in Fla. at the NCRS event and Mecums , taking in American car culture.

" On your homepage you wrote about the European:"

"...their kinship towards American muscle cars and the iconic Corvette was similar, but different than in the U.S."

" I'd like to know what's exactly the difference?"

I wrote back to him explaining some of my opinions based on my experiences. He wrote back. Speaking about the difference , using my trip as an example.

(he is speaking about Germany , but it could be any of the countries I visited)

"And, in my opinion, it was that courage "state of mind" makes the USA so special that time. (50's-70's) In my childhood people had more fear and it was a bit boring.

"Before a big project (like your EU-trip)"

" Many Germans would asking, what all could go wrong if they do this."

"The US people asking, what all they would miss," " if they don't do it."

Makes you think about America and gives you some insight on how some other people view us.

Jack

ps drive your car , it will love you for it
