Jack, what can I say? You are a man among men. You actually DO all of the things most of the rest of us just talk about. Sorry I missed meeting you when you came through DFW last year. The car looks beautiful! I really get a lot of pleasure out of reading about your projects and adventures. Keep the stories coming!

I know that what I do with my car is not what most owners do, but having grown up with the car, the driving of it , is what makes me happy.

I appreciate the hard work others do to make their cars look great, but even if my car looked like crap ( and many times it did) I still drove it.

If I can bring pleasure to others with my adventures, what more can you ask ?

Have a great year

Jack

Thanks , Paul Harrington, NCRS and New England Corvette Club members

I would like to thank Paul Harrington and the many corvette friends and members of the New England Corvette Club for send off party for the European trip.

Paul had set up a little party on the first day of my 48 state trip....to my surprise , more than 20 corvettes and their owners greeted my at Paul's home on Cape Cod....

This year Paul invited me down to do a pre trip tune up and inspections of my car before taking it to Europe.....I got there on Friday and we changed the plugs, oil, filter and check all fluids....Paul has a great garage and a few very nice cars.....and a lift...

Unfortunately.....as I got off the highway and slowed down a bit...I began to hear a bad sound from the rear and drive train....

We spent the day trying to track it down....we did find that my trailing arm shims had popped out on my right side.....we found some extras and replaced the missing ones....but the clanking and clinking continued...

I drove the car home and had no problem at high speeds, no noise or clanking....but at low speeds clinking came back....I will try to get the car to my mechanic to find the problem......hate to have a wheel fall off or some other drive train part break on the road

We did a mock judging of my car NCRS style....no I am not going to tell you how many points I had deducted.....But my engine now has decals.....I remember the original ones from 42 years ago......long gone, but now......just like new.......it says my engine has 350 HP...so it must be true..

Here are a few pictures and and link to all of them on Photobucket....about 15 to 20 members showed up with some very fast late models....

MS. Sea Emma leaves Boston on August 8th

I have just confirmed the sailing date. August 7 or 8th. The car will go to Boston on July 30th, a few days for customs and packing it in a container. The MS Sea Emma will arrive in Bremerhaven, Germany on the 27th. I should clear customs and be on the road by August 29.

From Germany I will head to Denmark, first, then on to Oslo, Norway, Helsinki , Finland, Stockholm, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Netherlands, Belgium and back to Germany for departure sometime at the end of October.

The trip should cover about 7 to 8 thousand miles. I will be in the US until August 26th, land in Germany, stay with German forum member, pick up car and head north.

I think that is enough planning for today

Lots of work to do before Monday when I drop the car off in Boston.

Again thanks to all who have supported this effort and the many new owners of old and new corvettes that I will stay with in Europe.

Jack

So buckle up your seat-belt and get ready for a great ride....


You can email me at

jack@corvettevagabond.com

While I am on the road or to leave telephone number and address...for me to stop...

Travel Update

Ok folks, here is the latest news on trip schedules.

The car/container arrives in Bremerhaven , Germany on the 30th or so of September. Container is transferred to a tramp steamer, that takes it to Oslo, Norway by the 5th of September.

I will ship the car back from Norway the week of October 22-27

I wonder around the docks until I find the right place, unload car from container, show documents to Customs (no duty or taxes in Norway if you do not stay more than 1 year ) .

I fly into Oslo on the 3rd of September, it is about a 13 -15 hour flight from Portland ME / Newark / Oslo . Leave at 12:45 pm on Sunday and arrive at 10 am , Monday in Oslo.

Spend two days in and around Oslo waiting for car to arrive.

On the road I hope by the 6th heading north to Trondheim, Norway.

Members of the Corvette Club of Norway and AMCAR will be helping me get the car and attend little gatherings of car owners.

After that I have to watch out for bears, deer and moose on the roads, not very many people, just like Maine...

I will post some costs and details later....right now I am working on becoming a Cinematographic expert....should be fun....lots of pictures and 90 second videos coming your way...

48 State Photos

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

Thanks to all of you

Hello to the members of the forum. To the many who have followed my travels over the last few years...

I can not express in words (no laughing) my thanks to you.

Without your support and encouragement , none of my adventures could have happen.

I hope this latest chapter in the travels of the Corvette Vagabond is as exciting , as was my first trip with you.

Cheers,

Jack Panzica

Corvette Club Norway Magazine Article

I would like to share some photos of the Corvette Club of Norway Magazine. Great photos of activities in Norway and a little article on my trip to Norway last fall. Thanks to all the Vikings for their wonderful hospitality and a lots of 700 hp blown cars.

Many are coming to America July 1, 2013. Over 100 vintage American cars are being shipped to NYC USA for a Lincoln Highway Tour, from Times Square NYC to LA, California on the Lincoln Highway 100 year old celebration.

I hope to be back from Le Mans on June 26, and drive from Maine to NYC to lead them out the Lincoln Tunnel to New Jersey. On their own in NJ.

Jack

Here is a link about the trip. I am sure they would love to have you join them along the way. More details later.

Visit to Cape Cod and CapeVetts

Hi , I know I have been away for a while, but I figured a nice ride to Cape Cod would help me feel better. And what better way to cheer oneself up , visit a good friend who happens to have a few nice cars. Paul gave me the first going away party on the first day of my 48 state trip. I was too busy to take pictures of his garage and cars.

Here they hope you enjoy them !

Here are some stats on the cars

61 Roman Red 383 stroker 4 speed. Owned for 30 years.
65 Glen Green 327/350 4 speed owned 43 years
68 Lemans Blue coupe 427/390 automatic. All original interior.
69 Convertible 350/350, 4 speed. 16 options including factory side exhaust. 45,000 orig. miles
2006 Z06 505 horsepower
