      Shhhh don't tell Vince at lest one of his writers is illiterate, possibly illegitimate, and just in it for the beer.
      Thanks for the welcome. (Adam)

    Writing, receiving tips, and having some back-and-forth via comments and emails with readers has been really fun! The DT team of writers and editors is pretty dang strong and I've really enjoyed reading all of the new work, too!

      first, i check the BBC news to see if the world went down the crapper overnight

      then DT to see what kind of late night jibber jabber staggered into the recent comments

      then, these days, fivethirtyeight.com to watch the slow-mo train wreck creep into the station

    Matt – are you sitting on the tray of an XE Falcon ute? How did you get that into the US??

      Yessir, it's rolling AFL game with a built 351 Cleveland and about 4 different colored body panels. I found it in Los Angeles on craigslist for dirt cheap, then a friend and I flew out there and drove it 2,400 miles home. It was not uneventful as you may imagine.

    Matt – I have 2 Holdens in the Philly area. Do you know of any other Aussie car owners on the US East Coast?

      No way! I've had 2 VL's, an EA and XE Falcon, and a VJ Valiant! What Holdens do you have?? There are not many of us on the East Coast!

    OMG, a VJ Valiant? I heard of one on the west coast – did you buy it there or from OZ?

    I have a Torana hatch A9X race car replica and the other is a VK Group A. Sadly they both need extensive recommissioning work although the VK is further along at the engine rebuild stage with suspension and electrics now done.

    There is a Torana A9X replica in Georgia. Dont know the owner but have seen the photos and the license plate is genuine. There is also a UC Torana street rod in Los Angeles. BAT has surfaced a few Aussie cars for sale over the last few years.

    Happy to send pics offline if you tell me best way to do it. I would also like to swap notes with you on how you have been sourcing parts since your cars are probably in the same state of gradual repair as mine!

      Wow, a VK here in the US! I bought the VJ Valiant from a rancher in Tasmania last year and road/ferry tripped it up to Melbourne where it shipped out. Yes, please do! Shoot me a note at matt@dailyturismo.com

      Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
