I am glad to be a member!
I believe I can learn a thing or two from you all about cars and life in general and maybe make a few friends.
I am an American that has lived and worked (Paid German Taxes for 10 years) in Germany for over 25 years. My wife is Italian (born and raised in Germany) and my two daughters 19 & 16 (born and raised in Germany) are American/Italian. There is not much that I can not do, or have not done and if it was not for that I would have never survived in Germany. I was an F-15 aircraft mechanic, all around man in housing contruction, and cars were my hobby. I am a honest and open minded person so if it looks and smells like shit I will tell you it is shit! I have own everything from a Trabant(3), FSO, Mercedes(3), Fiat(4), Audi, Renault(2), Alfa Romeo, BMW(2), VW(2), Opel and Mazda(4).
I went to the old school where an electric type writer was new, so if I am slow answering please be patience. I am not the best on a computer and this site is very hard for me to get around in. It took me 2 hours to write this, because everytime I changed a page and came back it was all gone. Once, I saved it and when I came back I could not find where it was saved. I will get it figured out sooner or later! I have a picture of my car, but I have not figured out how to get it where it should go. I also want to put it in the contest also, but I have not figured that out yet either.
