Welcome to the club

Hello, or “Howdy” as they will say where I grew up (Wyoming).  I expect to talk about things that interest me and by extension, some of you as well.  I am passionate about dogs, mountains, sports cars, airplanes, clothes, firearms, travel, politics, architecture, art, design, single malt scotch, cigars, food, good conversation, most things English.  I love polo, the Epsicopal Church and William F. Buckley, Jr..  I think John Wayne and Steve McQueen were over rated, William Powell, Jack Lemmon and Robert Duval are under rated.  I think that the Model 94 Winchester 30-30 is the best all around rifle I ever owned while the Colt 1911 .45 caliber pistol is the noisiest.

The worst car I ever owned, hands down, was a 1967 P1800 Volvo.  The best was a 1969 BMW 2002 Alpina.  The ones that I am sorry that got away were a 1962 Porsche hardtop convertable and a Lotus Superseven Mk.IV.  My “new” car is a 1965 Series lla 109 Land Rover station wagon and my “old” car is a 1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite.

I have a few more opinions, but maybe this will get us kicked off on a rousing conversation!
