    As requested, a bit about who I used to be and who I will become

    First off, I am retired and live in SW Missouri on Table Rock lake. My wife and I moved here 6 years ago. Seems like yesterday. We live way off the beaten track on the lake but surrounded by the Mark Twain national forest. I have a 1941 Packard Hot Rod you can see here. http://packardstreetrods.com/2020/01...941-110-coupe/ I originally came from Detroit. My wife and I moved to California (Simi Valley) with my job in 1989. Lived there for essentially 27 year with stints in Tianjin (PRC), Mechelen (Belgium) and London. I started life as a diehard dem and actually voted for McGovern. I slowly switched to the right when I grew up. I actually joined the republican party while living in California which lasted only a few years. I am now a true conservative and don't mind letting the world know it. I found this forum while just surfing and it seems interesting so far. Anyway, in addition to my car, and my fishing boat, my wife of 49 years and I just invested into a third of a Piper Cherokee. She has had here pilots license for 15 years and I earned my just a year ago. Got to keep that brain oiled up as the say.

    Welcome to the board. If they can put up with a Ferengi they pretty much put up with anybody.

    Hello and a warm welcome, I’ll be retiring in 2 years time, I’ll be relocating up north. Conservatives are very welcome here, it’s the best political forum in town.
    RIP Wes.

    Welcome. Sounds like you may fit well here.

    I'm right in the middle of Oklahoma. I am not an Okie, but my dad was. I am a Texan.

    Your about an hour and a half from us...south and east. Welcome to the board....many a good person residing within these walls. Sounds like you will fit in nicely.

    Love the car....at one time we had a 47 chevy. Flathead v-8. Cars built back then were the cats meow!

    Welcome again @Ascari I'm from Missouri myself about 60 miles West of St. Louis in a small town. Just a friendly reminder you won't get thanks if you don't thank people on this forum, of course that's if you agree with the thread or comment. I myself never got into Politics until 2020 when Trump was trying to get his second term, he was the first President I voted for and the first time I voted, we are mostly big America First Trump supporters on here
