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

      What is a Homologation car you ask?

      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.

      I've been at Mystic Seaport giving tours of the Draken Harald Harfagre on Saturdays. USCGA Class of 2021 flag presentation ceremony was on Chubb's Wharf between the Draken and Morgan. Really neat.

      Swab Summer for first year cadets. Some missed the flag presentation since they were on the Eagle.

      Pictures I took from the Draken ...
