Re: Hallo from Holland

Welcome to the Club - from "downunder" (Australia), Jan! We run some parallels - I also joined the USA Club instead of starting up my own one-man show here (plus these guys know what they're talkin' about and are true enthusiasts), and someone also cut holes in my sedan to fit rear indicator lights!...
