Hi everybody

I found your forum through a google search - I must say, it's very interesting here, there are a lot of helpful and informative threads around! Also, some pictures are great!

My name is Dominic, I'm from Switzerland, Europe, but not yet a Vette owner unfortunately. I go to California in a week to attend a program (academic year) at college, so there's actually no money left for any car. Since I've been a great car enthusiast all life long, and since I'm also more or less only into American cars, I hope to be able to get one afterwards.

One of my hobbies is photography, if you want to have a look at some things I've done so far, you can always visit my website: click here - if somebody in the San Diego Area wants to get some pictures of his or her Vette, you can always contact me ;)

So, whenever I see a Vette in CA, I'm going to ask myself if it might be a member from here :buhbye:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Cheers
Dominic

Welcome to DC. You'll see lots of fine cars during your time in Southern California. European fans of American rides are ridiculously few, so I'm sure we'd all like to hear from you again.

Write if you'll be visiting the New York City area. :cheers:

Best regards / meilleures salutations / mit freundlichen Grüssen

That's sad but unfortunately true. However there are a few of us ;) I've been addicted to American cars as long as I can remember (Vettes, Vipers, Cobras, Mustangs, etc). I guess I'll have a good time watching cars in San Diego :D

I've been to NYC in 2002 and 2005, but I want to go there soon again.

Thank you very much! Unfortunately I don't know many Vette drivers here, to be honest only one (C4). But should I get the opportunity to take pictures of a Vette, I'll post them up here first!

The irony is that the US is the largest market for many European performance cars, and some of these measures are not merely total volume, but per capita.

Many, many Americans are fans of European motors, Japanese motors, and more. While the US market is heterogenous and open-minded, the European consumer appears to be too often captive to group ideals of status or (arguably) superfluous technology.

My favorite argument from European friends is when they compare my C6 to cars that they don't own and that they will never own. Thus, I am subjected to lectures about a Ferrari costing 600% of the price of my car... by a guy who drives a 60bhp Citroen Saxo. It is the alchemy of envy. :laughing:

You're absolutely right. Porsche for example sells most of its production abroad.

Over here, I don't turn my head when I see a Porsche, there are so many of them. However, I always like to see (and hear... :partyon:) American cars.

Great story about your friend with the Saxo... But that's the way it is, sadly. And therefore I'm kinda thankful for the new Z06, which really kicks some ass (excuse the expression) in Europe. One of Germany's best regarded sports car magazine is very fond of it, and in some testing the Vette was better than the 911.
