      Awesome pics, thanks for sharing.
      If you have a 5 cylinder, you don't need a stereo.

      What is a Homologation car you ask?

      Great pictures.

      Love tall ships.

      It's often up here at the Coast Guard Academy.

      Yes, I know. New London. Had my ROTC test and physical at the Coast Guard Academy. Neat area. Nautilus and submarine force museum is across the river in Groton. Worth a visit.
