    Another new guy from South Dakota

     



    Hello everyone! Iím currently on deployment in Germany. I was into cars when I was young but took a detour into the bike world for a spell. I am now going back to my roots once more. I have an 86 Monte Carlo SS that I share with my wife as we bought it as a wedding present to each other back in 1998. I am going to do an LS swap in it and mod a bunch of other things as well. I also have a short box step side Chevy C-10 that I am building after the Monte Carlo. I then will get onto my 39 Chevy 2 door sedan which I have a long list of things I want to do on that one. Thank you for reading my paragraph of rambling.

    Welcome aboard, you're only about two hours away from me in Watertown. How long are you deployed in Germany? My BIL was deployed there quite a few years back.

    We’ve been here since October 1st 2019. Will be back home in July sometime. We are limited to zero travel here with everything going on in the world. So project research and planning is my sanity finder.

    Welcome to CHR. Sounds like you've got some great projects, and good plans for them! Assuming this is a military deployment, so thank you for your service, especially in times like this!

    Hello and welcome aboard. Very nice to see you here. And thanks for your service.

    If and when you can - share a pic or two of the rides, "we" love pics round this place. 8-)

    Welcome. Sounds like nice list of future projects. All cars that I could get into.

    Also very nice to see someone interested in a pre-49 car. That is becoming a rarer thing.

    Thank you everyone. When I get back home I will post pics of where things are currently at. I don’t have any on the iPad or phone here. Yes, this is a military deployment. I’m on rotation in Grafenwohr Germany. Before the virus scare we were able to see Nuremberg 4 times, Munich once, and a couple castles. I had a list with many other places on it to go see but looks like we won’t be doing that on this trip anymore. My wife and I will come back here to see a bunch of places in a couple years.

    Welcome to CHR, enjoy your time in Germany! I got to do some travelling in Europe many years ago, great memories! I live "downstream" from you in Madison, SD, we'll have to hook up when you get back!

    I'll bet the volksmarches are cancelled too. I went on a few of those.
