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.
ps drive your car , it will love you for it
